“Theresa was extraordinarily. She is knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and has a good heart. She helped us with places to eat and see that were outstanding. I highly recommend her and would request her for our next trip to the area.”

“We did 2 tours - beer & tapas with Travis and the 6 hour Prague walking tour with Tereza. Both were great tours and great tour guides. The small group size makes a huge difference. Booked both via Viator. Thank you”

Once we have all assembled, we’ll hop on public transport and take a 30-minute ride to the waterfalls entrance. Here we’ll stop briefly to introduce you to this astonishing sustainable tourism project.

A moderate 30-minute uphill hike through the beautiful jungle landscape will lead us to the 12th waterfall, which is where the real fun begins! From here, we’ll head back down river as you jump, slide and swim your way through a series of spectacular waterfalls, canyons and azure pools, emerging with a silly grin on your face and incredible memories to cherish.

The tour includes jumps of up to 25 feet (8 metres) but don’t worry, you can walk around them if you don’t fancy making the big jumps.

Delicious food will be waiting for you after our swim at a local’s favourite street food stall in a secret rural location, where you’ll try some delicious Dominican pork dishes, including crackling, fried pork and our beloved Dominican sausage, known as longaniza, which all the locals love.

Our food journey does not end here though! Next up, we’ll head over to a small town known for its mixture of local restaurants that specialise in authentic Dominican cuisine. We’ll visit our favourite joint where we’ll enjoy a scrumptious lunch accompanied by a local beer to wash it down.

After lunch we’ll head back to Puerto Plata where you can spend the rest of the day relaxing on the beach or exploring more of our beautiful island. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
