Abundant rivers lead to numerous waterfalls, some of which offer adrenaline-packed hiking adventures. Puerto Plata’s 27 Charcos de Damajagua waterfall park presents a series of cascades to conquer with jumps or slides, while Salto El Limón waterfall in Samaná is ranked among the highest, tumbling down 30 meters (100 feet). The heart of the DR, replete with mountains, is home to numerous freshwater cascades, and visiting them can easily fill your daily calendar, from Salto Baiguate to Salto Jimenoa I and II in Jarabacoa. Smaller cascades can be found tucked away in the hills all around the country, ready to be discovered.

Waterfall excursions are available from various points of the country—you could even design your trip according to the ones you wish to experience.

Chasing after the DR’s waterfalls is a bona fide activity.

Puerto Plata’s crown jewel attraction offers a day of hiking through thick forest, crossing footbridges and passing numerous flora before eventually reaching a rocky hilltop where you’ll begin making your way down by jumping or sliding down a series of waterfalls!
Puerto Plata
Completely off the beaten track, three waterfalls empty into deep azure pools known as “God’s pool.” You’ll hike for an hour with typical scenes of Puerto Plata village life along the way, and climb up a short series of rocks to the Charcos de Los Militares, where natural river fed pools await.

Take the waterfall experience up a notch at Ciguapa–counting a total of six falls and twelve jumps of up to 10 meters (30 feet) high, during a two-hour river expedition. The journey includes a hike through thick jungle before beginning this water-filled expedition.

Shaped like a mushroom–rounded at the top and thinning at the bottom–this canyon adventure offers an exhilarating day of canyoning and rappelling in the cool rivers of Cabarete.

Agua Blancas waterfall, one of the highest altitude cascades in the Caribbean, tumbles 83 meters (272 feet), splattering into a large and cold jade pool hugged by a terrain blanketed in tall pine and green ebony trees. Footbridges and a wooden platform allow you observe the falls from a near distance, and you can step down closer to its lower pools.
The perfect waterfall and jade pool await at Salto de Baiguate-cascading down 25 meters (82 feet), tucked below a deep canyon yet easily reached via a series of wooden steps that lead directly to the water.
Visit the two waterfalls that are synonymous with Jarabacoa--Salto de Jimenoa Uno and Salto de Jimenoa Dos–one set around a hydroelectric dam, and the other tucked deep inside a ravine.
Reaching El Limón waterfall is an adventure that takes you on a 2.5-kilometer (1.5-mile) journey through thick forest, on horseback or on foot down lush hilly terrain, while spotting flora and fauna along the way. You can also go canyoning through El Limón river to reach the falls.
