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 great experience on this excursion. We were so glad we didn't book through the cruise line. We were able to go to more water falls and bypass a huge line. All of our tour guides were very good. They go above and beyond to make sure your experience is great. The strap on our GoPro broke and one of the guides found it in the water for us. You do need to be in shape for this as the hike was not easy. Have good shoes and have fun. This excursion was for sure mine and my families favorite.

I was worried about the level of physical activity because I'm overweight and work an office job all week, but I'm so glad it didn't deter me from doing this excursion! I had to take a break once on the way up, but the tour staff was so kind and understanding about it. It was an amazing experience, even as someone who can't swim well, and they took care of us from the moment we left port to the moment we got back. Don't miss this!

This is a MUST!!!! But be forewarned. You shouldn’t do it if you have back problems or can’t walk up hills. But if you can it’s seriously one of the best times!!! Jumping off 27 foot cliffs and God made water slides. I was there 3 weeks ago and just finally been able to sit on a regular chair. But I would do it again in a heartbeat!!! Francisco was our guide and he ruled!!!!! Don’t miss this!!!!
