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

I wasn’t expecting to go to a Chinatown but as my wonderful guide Lewis explained the food reflects the history. He told me about immigration policies and their influence on food. The tour was good but when I explained I was having trouble with ATMs he went above and beyond helpful. He took me to banks I didn’t know about. He took me back to the office to ring the card centre. He didn’t leave me until it was resolved. As an older woman travelling solo with only English it can be very stressful dealing with problems. Lewis was calm and courteous. Thank you again Lewis.

Despite that, with such a large group, it could be hard to hear the explanations of the various historical stops, our guide was really warm and friendly, and happy to chat or answer questions, as was the young woman who helped shepherd our group. In all, it was a delightful few hours' easy walking tour. read less

While we did many tourist things including a trike tour and visit to the caves. My favorite part of the tour was getting to visit where locals enjoyed food and drink. I would definitely recommend this tour!! read less

As a solo traveller - there were four of is the tour - this was a great way to discover more of Santo Domingo than I could have done alone in half a day. Apart from the three eyes park (well worth the tour price on its own) it really is a whistlestop tour but whets your appetite to explore some of those sights further. The slightly offbeat theme holds the whole thing together and if you want a tour of Santo Domingo this is definitely to be recommended. read less
