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.
