Salto de Jimenoa, Jarabacoa

#1 of 13 in Things to do in Jarabacoa
Enter picturesque wilderness at Salto de Jimenoa, a series of four waterfalls connected via numerous trails and ravines. The largest and most popular of the waterfalls is "Salto Jimenoa Uno" a 60 m (196 ft) fall pouring down from a hidden pool, thundering into the waters below. It was this fall that featured in the 1993 film Jurassic Park. The trail to the falls is challenging, with steep inclines and narrow hanging bridges suspended over the river's rapids, so you'll need appropriate footwear and plenty of water. But the view you're greeted with once you meet your destination makes it well worth the climb. Take a dip in the swimming hole to cool off, although be aware of strong swirling currents. Horse riding and jeep trips to the start of the fall trails are available. Put Salto de Jimenoa into our Jarabacoa journey builder website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beautiful place! Parking is 50 pesos and entry is another 50 pesos/person. It's a short walk to the waterfall. You are unfortunately not allowed to swim at the waterfall but you can swim in the small river downstream of the waterfall which was a great experience! Go here if you are in Jarabacoa!
  • Beautiful place , with amazing views. The drive was long to get there, and had to stop several times to ask locals... Don't ask no one on a motorcycle if you are going on your own. They'll want to "guide" you and ask you for money. There's a small cover charge to access the park, and you have to cross a few small suspension bridges to get to the waterfall.
  • Beautiful natural place I used to visit since childhood.
  • If you are looking for nature , this is a place you will love ... Water it's very cold
  • We took a hike via the forest with a bunch of 14 year-olds to a higher waterfall in the same area that took us about 30 minutes. The raw nature and the views were just stunning!
