Puerto Plata’s most famous natural attratction is a unique spectacle in the entire Caribbean.

Welcome to the Twenty Seven Waterfalls of Rio Damajagua and the best adventure tourism site in the Dominican Republic! Nestled in the rolling hills of the Northern Corridor mountain range and behind the long stalks of sugar cane lays a treasure you won't find anywhere else in the world.

Mother Nature has crafted twenty-seven awe-inspiring pools, etched out of limestone, for your enjoyment. Come discover the best kept secret of the Dominican Republic!!

Damajagua is a series of crystal-clear waterfalls from the Cordillera Septentrional where you can also find giant rock formations, puddles and natural slides.

A true wonder of nature located in the municipality of Imbert. There are 27 puddles that descend into waterfalls where each one has its own attractions that make it ideal for ecotourism and are managed by the residents of the community of “Los Llanos de Pérez”, who were integrated into a project to make it sustainable and it receives an average of more than 300 people a day.

Come and enjoy the 27 Pools of the Damajagua River Tour! Perched in the rolling hills of the Northern mountain range of the Dominican Republic, this is a natural treasure that you will not find on any other part of this world. Indeed, Mother Nature has produced 27 beautiful pools, carved by the limestone. Be ready to have fun!!!

Our team has extensive experience as water guides and strives to ensure that your satisfaction is our number one priority. Our goal is to make the time you spend with us the highlight of your vacation.

At first, the tour begins at the beautiful, new, visitor center. Come and enjoy traditional Dominican food and beverages in the open-air restaurant with breath-taking mountain views. Next, make your way to the first waterfall on our interpretive nature trail on which you will encounter hundreds of species of tropical plants and birds.

The Twenty Seven waterfalls have existed for millennia but were only recently discovered by the outside world. The first tourists began arriving at the Falls in 1994, and little by little, word got out about this amazing natural treasure and spawned a guiding industry for the local young men. Ten years later, nearly 50,000 tourists every year come to Rio Damajagua to enjoy what Dominicans have known about for centuries.

The vast majority of tourists who visit 27 Charcos do so as part of prepaid guided excursions from professional guide companies in Puerto Plata or Cabarete. These groups arrive at 27 Charcos and climb up with a tour guide to the 7th Waterfall before returning back down, about 2- 3 hours round trip. This is a fantastic way of visiting 27 Charcos if you are unfamiliar with the area. The only drawback is that these groups only go up one quarter of all the Falls; 21 remain, untouched in the winding Damajagua above. Because of the length of the trip to the top, 4- 5 hours in a group of about 5- 7, tourists wishing to go all the way up must come on their own, either through rental car, taxi or public transportation. These private tours are catered to the tourists wishes and can be extended or turned around whenever you want.
