Tour Details

Damajagua or "27 Charcos" (Charco translates as "pool" and refers to the natural swimming pools of the falls) as the locals call it, is one exhilarating eco-adventure not to be missed in the Dominican Republic. Nestled in the rolling hills of the Northern Corridor mountain range and behind the long stalks of sugar cane lays a treasure you won't find anywhere else in the world.

Your adventure begins at the main gates of the Amber Cove Cruise Center where you're welcomed and greeted by the friendly staff who will be escorting you on the tour. A narrated, countryside drive will take you to the Damajagua "base camp" located within a tropical forest. Immersed in the beautiful landscape of the "Cordillera Central" (mountain range), the "Salto de la Damajagua" and its 27 lagoons are part of the system of a protected area of the Dominican Republic. This natural monument of the Damajagua River is composed of 27 bodies of water of various sizes.

Here you will have time to use the facilities before hearing important rules and safety instructions and receiving your helmet, life-jacket, and bottle of water. Then you are on your way up-hill for approximately 30-minutes to the first waterfall. Official park guides are located at each fall, slide, or jump and climb. Although this tour does include jumps of up to 25 feet, there are paths at some of the highest jumps where you can choose to walk around.

Your return to base camp is by jumping and sliding down 12 of the natural waterslides carved from centuries of rushing water. After your adventure, you will have a chance to change into dry clothing.

On your return to the cruise center you will enjoy lively, typical music as you sip on your rum punch and enjoy a snack provided by your guide.

If a guest or the guide(s) determine that the guest will not be able to participate in all aspects of the experience, the guest will be offered the opportunity to walk to the last fall to wait for their group OR wait at the base camp facility. Safety and the enjoyment of the experience for all guests is of utmost importance to our excursion hosts and specialty guides. You will be rejoined with your groups when they return to base camp.

We had a blast. It was SO beautiful and getting teenagers excited can be a challenge. Our adventurous group of 12 loved it! One or 2 of us was a little out if shape, but hey, they warned us about the hike up to the falls. Once that was done, it was all downhill and everyone would go again.

Amazing experience! High adventure, adrenaline pumping! Our group was aged 45-11 and it was loved by us all! Once we walked to the tour bus we were greeted by an awesome crew. The bus had ac and free WiFi. Our belongings stayed safe in the bus while we were on the mountain. Water shoe rental was $2. The hike up was no joke but totally doable. Water was provided and breaks were given. Coming down was an experience not to be missed! Jumping off of the falls, sliding down the natural slides and making our way through the caverns was just awesome. The highest jump was 25' and our 11 year old was the first to jump! The guides are amazing and with you every step of the way. There is an alternate route down but go for it! We brought a go pro to capture the excitement. The ride back we were offered snacks and bottomless yummy rum punch! They even stopped at a local fruit stand and bought bananas for everyone! By far everyone's favorite thing from our trip! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Reviewer: Rina Huezo
The Damajagua Falls was a great experience and the coaches were very helpful. Explained everything in detail. Everyone in our group had a good time even though I’m not really a person that likes to submerge my head in the water. The hike was great but little challenging but the cold water they gave us helped. Too and the tour took the whole time so we didn’t get to explore other areas of the DR. We will be back for sure. The drive to the falls was scenic
