Canyoning & Rappelling
Rugged rainforests, hidden waterfalls, rocky hills covered in vegetation: you’re never far from a canyoning or rappelling experience in the DR. In fact, both are often combined for an adrenaline-packed adventure that will make you appreciate the grandeur of the DR’s landscape. Head to Puerto Plata, adventure capital of the country, where expert outfitters will take you into a river valley with 46meter (150 feet) rappelling and 18-meter (60-feet) jumps into crystal waters. In Jarabacoa, the scenery gets even more rugged as you go through the canyons of the Baiguate Falls.
Canyoning and rappelling adventures in these north and central regions are accessible from all beach towns, and available year round thanks to our moderate climate at these altitudes.
Descend into riverbeds, rappel down waterfalls, and leap 18-meter (60-foot) down into emerald-colored fresh water pools.
