Other Nearby Places to Visit
Families who are searching for adventure in the Dominican Republic should take the Twenty Seven Waterfalls (Damajaqua Cascades) tour that leads deep into the mountains of Puerto Plata. Among the hills of this region are 27 natural limestone waterfall pools that had remained hidden from the outside world until relatively recently. Tourists now have a chance to visit these beautiful pools and get a chance to swim in their relaxing waters. After arriving at the visitor center to wait for their guides, visitors can enjoy food and drinks in a comfortable open-air restaurant that offers wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. When it is time to head to the waterfalls, visitors will walk on beautiful nature trails where they will see all kinds of birds and tropical plants that are native to the island. As families make their way up into the hills, they will encounter numerous waterfalls, swimming holes and cave systems that can only be reached by venturing deep into the Dominican wilderness. There are natural waterslides that tourists can slide down as they make their way through the mountains. Diving cliffs can also be found near a few of the waterfalls, and tour members will have a chance to leap from some of these precipices into the cool waters below. Helmets and life jackets are provided for the safety of participants, and dedicated Twenty Seven Waterfalls (Damajaqua Cascades) guides stay with tourists at all times.
