Salto de Jimenoa, Jarabacoa

(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I really love the experience in this place. The local community take care of the access and the parcking lot area not big parcking but it is secure and you can enjoy of the Forest without worry about your stuff The walk down was very interesting coming was not that fun but is a good place to know and enjoy of the natural resource of the water fall
  • Long walking to the Salto. You could swim in the water but it has strong waves.... Had a hard time leaving because it is hills
  • Wonderful place... Nice hike but do not swim as many people have drowned, bring comfortable footwear
  • Great place
  • Travel about 20-30 min walking to get to the waterfall, very nice. Bring plenty of water and food.
