Know More about this tour

From Amber Cove, it's just about a 20-25 minute drive to the Waterfalls of Damajagua, one of the top attractions on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Nature has crafted here some awe-inspiring pools, etched out of limestone, with stalactites and stalagmites in a thousand colors. Hike about 20 minutes uphill, and start to swim, jump and slide through some of the most beautiful cascades, with its refreshing, crystal clear water. The minimum age required by the National Park to participate in the upper cascades is 8 years. Younger children can have a swim at the first cascade but have to be supervised.

Halfway back in direction to the Amber Cove Port, you'll arrive at the ranch in about 15 minutes. After the meet and greet at the Country House Bar and a delicious home-cooked lunch, on fire wood, you will get equipped for the zip-lines. Also a bottle of fresh drinking water will be attached to your harness to make sure you stay well hydrated during this adventure. After the safety briefing it's time to feel the adrenaline on the 8 ACCT certified zip-lines, with a total of more than 7,900 feet of galvanized, steel cable. The longest ride is 2,460 feet. No experience is required. Contrary to many other zip-line parks you are not involved in any active breaking, like using gloves for stopping. For your comfort you can hold on to a handlebar. You are also able to take pictures or videos with your own camera. Between the lines there are some walking distances. You determine your own speed and instructors will move at your pace. Feel free to try the local fruits in season fresh from the tree. A natural juice will also be prepared to boost you with fresh energy.

Before heading back to the port you can take pictures with the tame, exotic animals from the petting zoo. The squirrel monkeys and parrots will love to pose with you.

    • The service was excellent. Facilities were excellent. The waterfalls were great, but it was a cattle herd of tourists. Our guide got us there early, so we were some of the first to arrive. That helped. Wear shoes with soles. Zipline was good - but it required a decent amount of walking. I highly recommend this event, but don't overpack, and make sure when they say get off the boat immediately and get to the cab - get off the boat early and get to the cab. Print the vouchers.

    • This trip was AMAZING!!!!! Highly recommend it to everyone! We had our own taxi driver that stayed with us the entire time...waiting as we slid down the 7 waterFalls...what a BLAST!!! Then he took us to the zip line...these were some of the longest lines we have ever done! Then he drove us back to the ship. Great time would do this again..maybe even try for more sliding of the waterfalls, 7 wasn't enough!

    • We had a personalized tour with a private taxi, private waterfall and zipline tour and lunch just for my husband and I. It was great.

    • A great excursion! I'm sixty years old and tend to be a little risk adverse. I was a little nervous about the safety aspects of the splash and zip parts of this adventure. Well . . . my fear was unnecessary. As for the falls: although it had rained heavily the day before, and the water at the falls was flowing fast, we were accompanied by a very, very experienced, knowledgeable and friendly guide. He stayed right with us without being intrusive the entire walk up the falls, and the entire ourney back down. He recommended to us which falls we should jump from, and which falls to slide down. When early on I lost my water shoe due to the heavy current, he got from one of the fellow guides with a similar foot size as mine a water shoe for me wear the rest of the way. I didn't really need it in the water but I could not have made the rocky walk back without it. A thrilling experience, and although I was fearful at several of the falls, our guide was reassuring and I always felt safe. As for the zip-line: the experience also was very thrilling and 100 safe. We were triple-attached to two cables, and we did not have to independently brake. The guides working the zip-lines made sure we were well equipped helmets and harnesses and were super careful to make sure the cables were properly attached. Also, the guides working the braking systems were excellent. Lunch also was wonderful. I highly recommend this excursion.

    • This was a phenomenal tour! The waterfalls were incredible, and the tour guides were friendly, knowledgeable and took great pictures! Lunch was fantastic and the little farm was delightful. I would definitely go again!
