The Dominican Republic: the first thought goes to the white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. But the Dominican Republic is also a place for those who love adventure. On the island there are impressive waterfalls with breathtaking views and, above all, for those who are prepared and despise danger, the appearance of truly unprecedented landscapes. Here is a water ace poker, to be enjoyed at least with the imagination.
The waterfalls of Damajagua
A unique place in the world, ideal for sports and adventure lovers. If you feel like “jumping” from one waterfall to another, this is the place for you. To visit the Damajagua waterfalls, you can join one of the many organised excursions. The waterfalls are located in a natural park and it takes about 45 minutes of hiking to reach the highest point where you can “jump”. From this point you can launch yourself or slide down the rock on the 27 jumps of the Damajagua River. This place can also be visited by the less courageous, as there is an alternative route.
The Limón Falls
The Cascada de Limón is an impressive three-level waterfall in the Dominican Republic, on the island of Hispaniola. It is located near the village of El Limón. It is located 2 km north of the town of Samaná (Santa Barbara de Samaná).
The excursion to Salto El Limón is a fantastic ecotourism experience. Tens of thousands of tourists visit the natural monument Salto El Limón every year. It is protected in the village of El Limón, in the province of Samaná.
The Limón Falls originate where the waters of the Arroyo Chico River flow into the Limón River. The waterfalls fall from a height of 55 metres. They create a beautiful natural pool at the base with cool, clear waters. This is the most impressive and renowned of the many rapids in the protected area comprising most of the Arroyo River.
The Jalda Falls
It is considered the highest jump in the Caribbean, at over 120 metres high, although it is still known to few people. It is located between Miches and Sabana de la Mar, in Loma de Magua, on the east of the island. To reach the waterfall, you can choose between a four-hour walk, a two-and-a-half-hour horseback ride or a helicopter trip.
