27 WATERFALLS DAMAJAGUA
Visit with us the 27 waterfalls of Damajagua, the No.7, 12 and 27 at the best market price.
Located in the municipality of Imbert de Puerto Plata, the famous 27 Charges of Damajagua are a true wonder of nature. The origin of the name of the river and its puddles is because the Damajaguas are trees that grow in the rivera. The Damajaguas maintain the river with water for a long time and in puddles can be found these trees especially from puddle number twelve on. The word «Damajagua» is derived from the Taíno vocabulary. The river is the result of the confluence of numerous waterfalls and springs that are generated in the mountain tops of the municipalities Altamira and Imbert of Puerto Plata.
The place is a true example of ecotourism and sustainable tourism since everything there is offered to visitors is related to the creole and natural, because on arrival we find a typical ranch where there is a reception to receive visitors, Tobacco shop, crafts and restrooms. Our tour takes us through a pleasant path on the banks of the Damajagua River and through its 27 «puddles», each with its own personality. We delight in the song of the birds and the melody of the streams, in addition to the dialogue with expert guides that help us to ascend from the first waterfall to the last. We will enjoy crystalline, cool and cool waters, caves, natural «slides» and huge rocks molded to perfection by the slope of the waters coming from the highest mountains.
