Welcome to paradise! Take a stimulating trek through lush rainforest to discover the best of the 27 waterfalls at Damajagua. Hike, slide, swim and jump your way around this watery assault course, with a local guide leading you to all the best spots. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, we’ll take you to not one but TWO of our favourite local foodie haunts to sample the very best of authentic Dominican cuisine. At Dominican Adventures, we’re all about offering you the Best. Day. Ever., and we think we may have surpassed ourselves with this awe-inspiring tour!
Once we have all assembled, we’ll hop on public transport and take a 30-minute ride to the waterfalls entrance. Here we’ll stop briefly to introduce you to this astonishing sustainable tourism project.
A moderate 30-minute uphill hike through the beautiful jungle landscape will lead us to the 12th waterfall, which is where the real fun begins! From here, we’ll head back down river as you jump, slide and swim your way through a series of spectacular waterfalls, canyons and azure pools, emerging with a silly grin on your face and incredible memories to cherish.
The tour includes jumps of up to 25 feet (8 metres) but don’t worry, you can walk around them if you don’t fancy making the big jumps.
Delicious food will be waiting for you after our swim at a local’s favourite street food stall in a secret rural location, where you’ll try some delicious Dominican pork dishes, including crackling, fried pork and our beloved Dominican sausage, known as longaniza, which all the locals love.
Our food journey does not end here though! Next up, we’ll head over to a small town known for its mixture of local restaurants that specialise in authentic Dominican cuisine. We’ll visit our favourite joint where we’ll enjoy a scrumptious lunch accompanied by a local beer to wash it down.
After lunch we’ll head back to Puerto Plata where you can spend the rest of the day relaxing on the beach or exploring more of our beautiful island. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
Note that the food samples may vary from tour to tour depending on what is available that day

Miguel (City of Firsts) and Rainer (Sights, Sounds, and Tastes) were fantastic guides. It's the low season for tourism right now in the DR and so for both tours I was on my own, but from the start it was like hanging out with old friends. I am so impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of Miguel and Rainer, and with their evident love of their city and passion for sharing it with others. I knew very little of the history and culture here before these tours, but now feel like I have seen Santo Domingo through the eyes of experts. I would highly recommend both tours for anyone who wants to see the real Santo Domingo and have a very memorable experience this fascinating city. More read less
