Tucked in the heart of Puerto Plata’s verdant plains and completely off the beaten track, this series of three waterfalls, El Charco de los Militares, empty into deep azure pools that are also affectionately called ‘God’s pool.’ Reaching here is part of the adventure–you’ll hike for an hour along part flat and part hilly pasturelands. A final makeshift cable-assisted climb up a short series of rocks leads you to the Charcos de Los Militares, where you’ll likely be the only ones there enjoying these natural rivers fed pools. Guided hikes to these magical falls leave from Tubagua Eco Lodge. Meet you there? 😍 📸: @ig_castb
