    OVERVIEW
    Race through the countryside in an all-terrain vehicle and enjoy a cool mountain stream and its tumbling cascades. The Damajagua River is the waterfalls’ source and the setting couldn’t be more beautiful. After hiking through the jungle, you will arrive at a series of cascades that comprise this natural wonder. You will be free to swim in the numerous mountain pools, slide down cascades with slick rock chutes and even jump off some of the waterfalls into the refreshing water below. This area is only accessible on foot, which limits the number of other adventurers. The adrenaline rush will continue once you ease into an ATV and tear off into jungle. You can take the wheel or ride in the passenger seat. Either way, it will be exhilarating, especially if it’s been raining because the mud will be flying. Although you will be mostly off road, you will stop in a village to interact with the locals.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Enjoy a refreshing swim in the pools below the Damajagua waterfalls
    • Slide down the slick chutes that the cascades have carved into the rocks.
    • Marvel at the secluded pristine setting, which can only be reached on foot.
    • Race through the countryside in an open-air ATV built for adventure.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Bring a swimsuit and towel.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    OVERVIEW
    Prepare for three times the fun on this ultimate adventure by zip line, ATV and by following a jungle trail to the gorgeous Damajagua waterfalls. The leisurely hike through the unspoiled wilds will introduce the natural beauty that you will experience three ways. You will first race through the tree canopy on a series of five ziplines, each uniquely exhilarating. Negotiating two suspension bridges between the ziplines will add to the thrills. Upon reaching the waterfalls, you might swim in the pools at the bottom of the many cascades or simply enjoy the serenity of the surrounding forest. Few places are quite so breathtaking. You will see this natural wonderland from yet another perspective by riding off-road in an open-air vehicle built to handle even the toughest terrain. The experience will deliver one thrill after another as you tear across a river, through the mud and into a small village for a cultural encounter.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Fly high above the jungle floor on five ziplines and walk across two suspension bridges.
    • Enjoy a refreshing swim in the pools below the Damajagua waterfalls.
    • Race through the countryside in an open-air ATV built for adventure.

    OVERVIEW
    Experience the Damajagua waterfalls in every way imaginable with a local guide leading the adventure. A leisurely hike through a jungle-like landscape will bring you to the waterfalls, whose source is the Damajagua River, a cool mountain stream. This breathtaking natural wonder contains numerous cascades of varying heights, and you will reach about a dozen of them. You will jump off some of the waterfalls, negotiate other ones by sliding down slick rock chutes and swim in the sparkling pools at the base of all of them. Wooden walkways and steps connect many of the cascades, allowing you access that would be impossible otherwise. The river is known for its beautiful blue hue as it spills out of the mountains and carves its way through the rocky terrain. Steep limestone canyons line much of the Damajagua, making the scenery all the more memorable.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Follow a guide down the Damajagua River as it cascades through the mountainous jungle.
    • Jump off and slide down the waterfalls and swim in the cool pools below the cascades.
    • Marvel at the secluded pristine setting, which can only be reached on foot.

    OVERVIEW
    Race through the tree canopy on a series of exhilarating zip lines and then cool off in the Damajagua River as it cascades through the dense jungle terrain. The five ziplines more or less follow the river and offer a wonderfully unique perspective of the tropical landscape, as they span platforms high above the ground. To reach some of the ziplines, you will need to walk across swaying suspension bridges, which definitely add to the excitement. Afterwards, you will follow the guide along a section of the river with a dozen cascades. You will jump off some of the waterfalls into the deep pools below, while other waterfalls are more easily negotiated by sliding down natural waterslides carved in the rocks. You will also have time to swim in the cool, remarkably blue water between the cascades. Over time, the Damajagua has carved steep canyons into the terrain, so you can expect the scenery to be magnificent.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Fly high above the jungle floor on five ziplines and walk across two suspension bridges.
    • Follow a guide down the Damajagua River as it cascades through the mountainous jungle.
    • Jump off and slide down the waterfalls and swim in the cool pools below the cascades.

    Discover how sustainable agricultural practices have revitalized the area’s coffee production by visiting a farm that has overcome the challenges that once plagued the industry. Coffee has been grown in the Dominican Republic for centuries, but in the 1980s insect pests such as berry borers began to devastate the crop. You will visit a farm in the countryside to observe how coffee is now grown and processed using methods that better protect the plants. Every phase of production through harvesting and roasting the coffee beans will be covered. The plastic conceptions that you may see hanging from the trees are berry borer traps baited with an attractant that lures them into the soapy water below. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to a local reforestation project by planting a coffee tree in a well-shaded spot. A traditional lunch such as sancocho meat stew will then be served.


    HIGHLIGHTS

    • See how coffee is grown and processed at a farm that follows sustainable practices.
    • Plant a coffee tree as part of a local reforestation project.
    • Savor a traditional Dominican lunch at the coffee farm.
