Salto de Jimenoa, Jarabacoa

4.2
#1 of 12 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.

    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.
