Salto de Jimenoa, Jarabacoa

(220+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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.

  • Easy hike about 30 min. Good boulder scramble at the bottom. It not advised to swim near the falls due to the strong currents. Ok to wade in and splash yourself. 100 peso pp  more »
  • This is one of the several "saltos"of water that you can find in Jarabacoa. With warm water you can take a bath on the waters of Jimenoa River.  more »
  • This is a must see. Very scenic ride to get the the falls then just a short 10 minute hike. You can go in the water but not directly under the falls. Cool and refreshing. Afterwards you can go to Alta...  more »

  • 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
  • It is a very nice place for those who like adventure and forest. It is a 30 minute walk, to be careful if it has been raining because it is slippery. The waterfall is beautiful, bring food and drink, as there is no. The entrance has low visibility, so you have to be vigilant and ask well where is the input.
