Absolutely fantastic! I did this with my family and we all loved it. You get to climb and slide down 27 beautiful waterfalls! It is well worth the money. You get to see some beautiful landscapes and jump off of waterfalls!

My fiancé is Dominican, so based on my research, we took the local (Javilla Tours) guagua. The tour ticket pays for the helmet, life jacket, and a guide. The total price (including the guagua) was less than $25 USD for the 2 of us. It was lots of fun and extremely good exercise too. There has not been much rain... More

Not for scaredy cats, this is definitely an excursion for the adventure traveler. After a hike through the forest and across multiple streams, we arrived at the first pool. We did the lower 7 falls. Climbing up was not difficult thanks to our guides' assistance, and sliding down was just too short! I just wanted to do it all again.... More

Best day we had in DR was doing this. The guys are so helpful and concerned about your safety. My travel buddy can't even swim and she was fine sliding down the waterfalls thanks both to the lifevest and to one of the guys who always made sure to position himself in the water to pull her up should anything...

The rush, the excitement, the adrenaline, that natural high..! WOW! I've never experienced anything that's heightened me like this before! It was exhilarating! You get to hike through nature in the beautiful forest (if you're lucky, you'll get to see some snakes! don't worry, they're harmless), swim in clear blue water, and best of all, jump off cliffs and slide...

We did 7 Waterfalls, booked through Tours by James, on his Jeep Safari. The walk up was absolutely fine, my only issue was I hadn't anticipated quite what climbing the Falls would entail and hadnt taken into account my dodgy left shoulder!! Oh dear!! Being pulled up by my left arm on one of the early Falls, meant I chose... More

This was one of our hightlights during our trip to the DR. We did the 7 falls tour as excursion from our resort. You will need watershoes or sneakers you won't mind getting soaked. They supply the life vest and helmets. The initial walk up to falls is not that strenous but it is the climing up the falls (ladders,... More

It was so much fun walking through the jungle, sliding on rocks into water and jumping off of the cliffs. Guide is with you the whole time. Great adventure, would definitely recommend!

Awesome! My girlfriend and I went and it was great. We wanted to do all 27, but there was only a tour for 7 waterfalls scheduled before we left. This is a must before you head back home. Have Fun!!
