  • These waterfalls were amazing. The whole area was beautiful and some of the jumps were really quite high. We travelled with a 10 year old, who loved it! There is a bit of a trek up to the first waterf...  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.
  • Awesome attraction. Best waterfall adventure in DR. You can buy a tour on-site. It's significantly cheaper than the tour guide offers.
  • 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!
  • Was just there last mondayπŸ˜€πŸ˜Ž Experience of a life time!! Bori and Alrubi were excellent guides made the experience awesome for the whole group😎😎😎🌞🌞🌞🌞😎😎😎
