  • We went to Damajaqua waterfalls as part of a country world excursion, which was awesome! The hike up to the waterfall is pretty tough, especially when it's super hot, but once at the top it's amazing!...  more »
  • Went to the waterfalls for the first time and jumped off the cliff which was scary but a rush at the same time. For someone who does not swim there are plenty of staff to assist in your adventure maki...  more »

  • We had a blast sliding and jumping down into the cool clear water. Since we came from the cruise ship, we only had time to do 12 of the 27 falls. We had 2 great guides that helped us slide and jump safely on some of the more challenging falls. The falls and the backdrop are absolutely stunning. Admission with guides costs only $9 per person plus $5 more for a nice local buffet lunch. Tip the guides well as they work hard taking pictures/videos for you and entertaining you while ensuring your safety. It's a great and tiring hike up the hill before you are rewarded with some of the best waterfalls and scenery nature will provide. A must visit but you should be relatively fit and adventurous. All of us agreed that this is the best excursion from our 7 day cruise.
  • Super day! Clear and warm water. Good guide and equipment. Lots of fun. Escape route if the jump is too high. Delicious lunch. Good organization and not expensive! Go for it!!!
  • That was the most exciting and fun experience I have ever had. I had the best guide I could have hoped for. He showed me many other specialties of the country as we hiked up to the top. I went last June and I am going again the middle of February. I trust the water is spring fed or there are enough rains in the mountains. The water was crystal clear. This was truly God made slide for us. It was awesome. I think I have talked my wife into going (she is not the outdoor type). I am also taking my new GoPro!
  • Huge fun. Did all 27 and any more would have been too much. The lunch afterwards was also one of the best meals we had all week.
  • Must do bucketlist! Beautiful. Clean. Refreshing. Fun. Cardio.
