Damajaqua Cascades (27 Waterfalls)#4 in Best Things To Do in Puerto Plata
The Damajaqua Cascades are one of the most thrilling sights and experiences in Puerto Plata. Better known as the "27 Waterfalls," the cascades are just that -- and have been set up as a national monument for tourists to canyon through.
It'll take you about 25 minutes to reach the cascades, which are west of Puerto Plata along the Damajaqua River. Exploring the lower falls isn't horribly strenuous, but you should still think twice before bringing your young kids along. Your tour of the area will include climbing, sliding and cliff jumping, which could be too advanced for children under eight years of age.
Admission fees vary depending on how many falls you'd like to climb, and it includes the cost of an English-speaking tour guide (navigating Damajaqua Cascades without a tour guide isn't permitted) and gear. Most travelers opt for seven climbs, but you can also spring for 12 or all 27 waterfalls.
- The most enjoyable way to experience the falls is with a jeep safari tour booked through the activity desk at your hotel, which includes transportation to the Damajaqua River and an English-speaking guide." -- Away.com
