Salto de Jimenoa, Jarabacoa

(3.9/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Go to Jarabacoa and not go to the jump is a waste, from going on the road you'll appreciate the incredible landscapes. Already in the jump, you pay a small entrance fee, and start to go through the hanging bridges (not passing by naughty people trafficking). When you get to the jump invade you a feeling of peace, harmony and although it is not easy even under water is worth noting from the viewpoint.

  • I'll be back to make this "work" that requires 50 pesos entrance fee. You leave for 10 min walk on suspended bridges. Let's say fortunately there is this. Then you come on a first pool where you can swim there. I did not because he had the rain the night before where the color of the water and the force of the river. You go up a little and hop you are about to view of the waterfall. It's really not overwhelming, but if you are with children, and if you have not used to see real big and beautiful cascades, it should make you happy. Go to absolutely take a taxi which will ask for 600 pesos round trip. If you have time, do it. It's still nice!
