        27 Waterfalls of Damajagua
        Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
        After meeting your guides outside the Amber Cove Cruise Terminal you will board an air-conditioned vehicle for the 25 minute ride to the falls. During the ride you will receive a safety briefing and some local information of interest. Water, sodas, snacks and iced towels will be on board. On arrival at the 27 Falls of Damajagua Park you will leave the transport where you can leave a bag with your valuables, towel, dry clothes and flip flops for after the tour. Your guide will introduce you to the local waterfall guides who will be looking after you and you’ll be issued with a life jacket, helmet and a bottle of water for the hike up. If you want to take photos or video on the tour please only bring waterproof cameras. From this point on everything will get wet! A moderate 40 minute uphill hike through a beautiful jungle landscape gets you to the 12th waterfall or, if you are in excellent physical shape, choose to hike all the way to the top of the 27 Waterfalls (approximately 70 minutes) and experience it all. Either way, it's where your real fun begins as we head back down-river and 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 meters), but don't worry, the big ones have another way down if you don't want to jump. Once back down at the first fall and after you have taken your time relaxing in the amazing azure waters there will be a 15-minute hike back to the visitor center for lunch and a well earned rum and coke! After changing into your dry clothes enjoy a delicious and varied Dominican buffet lunch which includes barbecued chicken and pork, stews, rice, pasta and salads. Sodas and local rum are included (beer available but not included). After the meal you will say goodbye to the local guides and board the transport for the 25-minute transfer back to Amber Cove. We always aim to get you back at least one hour before the departure of your ship. Please note: This tour is for cruise ship passengers only.

        INCREDIBLE excursion out of Amber Cove.
        We were looking forward to the waterfall excursion out of Amber Cover (sailed on Princess Cruise Line's Sky Princess.) To say Iguana Mama overdelivered is an understatement. We had an amazing time! We met out driver and main tour guide Raul outside the main gate of Amber cove and it was a relatively quick ride to the Falls with Raul entertaining the whole group while in the air conditioned van. Once at the base camp of the Falls we were given a lifejacket and helmet before our journey up the mountain. The climb up the mountain wasn't too bad at all, especially with multiple rest breaks along the long way. For the zip line experience we were joined by two zip line experts. The five zip lines were fun, with one very long one and another that was a bit faster than the others. Being that high up while zip lining across nature was certainly something else! At our last zip line, we immediately went straight to jumping into the Falls and taking water way down through a series of jumps and rock slides. The water was so refreshing after the climb up the mountain and doing the zip lines! This part of the excursion was a true highlight. I had watched videos online of this experience and it looked awful being in large groups of 100 or more. Our personal group was a total of 6 people and we were joined with another group of about 20. This was totally different than the videos I had watched and was absolutely fantastic. Several large jumps into the water and several fast rock slides as well. Just terrific and our tour guide Raul was 10 stars for this part of the journey. After we walked back to base camp we had a stop at the bar for a Dominican lunch and this was possibly the best included lunch we've had on ANY Caribbean island that we have been to over the years. Another case of over delivering in a major way. Lots of options for the vegetarians/vegans in the group along (including fried eggplant) with tasty meats for everyone else. Sodas were included and this was actually the only day on our 7 day sailing where I got to have Coke Zero (my preferred drink of choice back in the States.) You could also purchase drinks at the bar and I was able to pick up a bottle of Presidente beer. I try to pick up a bottle of local beer at all the islands we go to. EXTREMELY recommended!! Looking forward to going back to Amber Cove in the future and would love to use Iguana Mama again.

        Very good excursion!
        Alexander our guide was great. The Eat Drink and Be Merry was fun showing us the area with different stops and talking with him about living in Puerto Plata. We did three excursions on various islands on our cruise and this was the best.

        Marvelous, muddy adventure
        This excursion was amazing. Alexander and his crew were able to show us the beautiful countryside of the DR. Luckily for us it had been raining that week and rained during our excursion, so we were covered head to toe in mud. We would not have wanted it any other way. The lunch and the private beach were an added bonus to the whole day.

        Don’t think about it, just do it!
        This excursion completely surpassed our expectations!! We got to see farmlands, cattle, beaches, rivers, drive through towns and more. Teco beach is gorgeous and we had some of the best chicken we’ve ever had made with love by a local legend. All of our guides were really cool (shoutout to Sabino!) and took some awesome videos and pics of us. 10/10 We will definitely be coming back!

        Ask for Alexander the Great as your tour guide!
        Perfect full day excursion. My husband and I cruised into Amber Cover and wanted to do something other than sit at the pool. The cruise ship excursions did not look enjoyable. After some research I found Iguana Mama Adventures. Excellent reviews from others so we took a chance. The reviews were spot on! Our tour guide was Alexander the Great. Only us and one other couple, so essentially a private tour with fun stops and great lunch! The rum and Coke flowed as much our as little as you wanted as we toured site to site. I would highly recommend this excursion!

        Take the Plunge
        Carlos and Gabi were excellent guides. Out of 3 excursions during our cruise, we enjoyed this one the most. The price is very reasonable for what you get. Be sure to have comfortable water shoes as you will walk on all kinds of terrain getting to the waterfalls. Be sure to not swallow the water or you may get a sick tummy. You can also hire a photographer to take photos and videos of you as you take the plunge. They give you a USB drive at the end. The lunch was a nice finish, as you will be hungry after your adventure.

        Wonderful Tour of Puerto Plata
        We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the Eat, Drink and Be Merry Tour in Mid November. We wanted a tour that would allow us to see the beautiful sites and experience the culture of the Dominican Republic, and this tour was perfect! Alexander was our guide and Fernando was our driver and they both did an awesome job showing us around the Puerto Plata area. We were picked up right outside the entrance to Amber Cove. It was about a 15-20 minute walk from the cruise ship and very easy to find. They spent 5 hours showing us the highlights of the area including Mount Isabel de Torres, tour of Macorix House of Rum, visit of Fortaleza de San Felipe, eating a delicious lunch downtown and walking around the downtown area. We ended the day with a visit of the Espigon Cigar Factory. We had such a fun time and highly recommend this tour!

        Tour with “oma”
        Alexander and driver mister “Indiana Jones” did everything to make our day a great day. Alexander knows Puerto Plata well and was eager to answer our questions. He knows a lot of people in Puerto Plata, which makes for a smooth and interesting tour with the inside scoop. Lunch was held in a quaint, cozy Dominican cafe away from tourists. Although a lot, the food was good. As promised, we were definitely not short on rum-cokes. We were encouraged to drink, as we’re “not driving” but said with a laugh. All in all, we had an amazing tour that we will remember for a long time.

        Alex and Max were absolutely fantastic. They went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful time. Alex was very knowledgable and gave us a detailed tour and answered all of our questions. We were fortunate enough to be able to experience this beautiful place as a local. We would highly recommend this excursion.

        Great Puerto Plata Excursion
        We took this tour on our cruise stop in Puerto Plata. Edwin was our guide and Max our driver. We had a blast with them. Very interesting and beautiful stops, including cable car, rum factory, fort and different spots in town. Edwin was the nicest guy and knew a lot of the history of the area. The included lunch at a local restaurant was delicious as well. We would definitely recommend this tour.

        Carlos is the best, amazing time!
        We booked the Damajagua Waterfalls with 5 zip line package with Iguana Mama. I read all the reviews beforehand and read amazing things about others’ experience. We loved our tour guide Carlos and we had an amazing experience with him! The buffet lunch included was delicious, and we had extra time to spend for shopping and guided sight-seeing with him. Loved booking a private tour as we were the first ones there ahead of all the cruise ship tour groups and we beat the crowds! Highly recommend.

        Crowded but lots of fun
        We went with an outside company other then the cruise excursions because we were told that we would get to the falls before the cruise crowds. However, it was still very crowded and a long line down all the falls and zip lines. We still had a great time but we just expected it to be a little different crowd wise. The food after the excursion was just ok. We were served rum and coke on the way back to Port which was great. Our guide Carlos was amazing and funny. They also provide a personal photographer for a small fee so you don't have to worry about losing your camera or phone on the falls.

        Carlos and Max are awesome!
        We booked this tour through TripAdvisor as a shore excursion for our cruise. It was an amazing tour. Carlos was a wealth of knowledge and a great guide for all our locations! Max was an amazing driver. We had a great time and it was almost a private tour. We got back to our ship in plenty of time. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! We loved it!

        OUTSTANDING ALL THE WAY AROUND!
        My husband and I took this tour and had a FANTASTIC day! Alexander the Great was such a great tour guide, bartender, all around FUN person and Indiana Jones was our fearless driver. We ended up being the only ones on this tour (other family canceled). We were a little tired in the beginning of the day, due to late niter on the cruise ship, but with the help of some delicious rum cocktails and Alexander's FUN we had such a great day! I would HIGHLY recommend Iguana Mama tours. Very professional, prompt, and FUN! Terri and Tom Long

      We booked this tour online before our cruise ship visited DR. We met the group outside of the cruise terminal past the security / entrance.

      We were taken on our tour, and we were accommodated in every way. Some in our group were big risk takers, and some were not, so we were able to jump if we wanted, or those that did not want to were escorted down a ladder. The guides treated us with respect. We would say the hardest part of the excursion was walking up to the beginning of the waterfalls at the beginning of the tour. Also, note, we visited more falls than the cruise ship sponsored excursion.

      I would recommend swim shorts/ shirts, and also please wear water shoes that you can navigate rocky trails in. The buffet lunch at the end of the excursion was fabulous. We also enjoyed the drinks we were offered. We were back in plenty of time to meet our ship.

      Hola Stlwaterbaby!! Thanks so much for choosing our Damajagua excursion and this awesome review! Great recommendations as yes, the hike is rocky and shoes with tread are much better than water shoes! We suggest old tennis shoes or river shoes like Keens or Tevas. So happy to read you enjoyed the day and we hope you'll join us on another adventure in the future! Stay well! Lidia / Iguana Mama

      Alejandro our tour guide was professional, polite, knowledgeable, personable and made our experience fantastic. He took great care to make us safe and took great photos and videos with our cellphone. The hike was gorgeous and the falls were very fun and spectacular. After we had a tasty Dominican lunch and Alejandro gave us some local rum to try with coke. On the way back to the ship he explained local music as he played them in the van. This was by far our best tour and I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a bit of culture and a great adventure at the national park.

      Absolutely amazing from start to finish. Right away our guide Carlos told us the water was too low to do 27 falls and offered us choices - get a full refund, get a partial refund and do less waterfalls, or add on zipline. We chose to do less waterfalls and the refund was processed before we even got to the site! Our group ended up just being my husband, myself, and our teenage daughter.

      The actual excursion was amazing. We are experienced cruisers and have done MANY shore excursions and this was the absolute best. Carlos was exceptional in every way! He gave us water during the hike to the top, we got to jump off the waterfalls which cruise booked passengers did not (they can only slide), we got to go 2-3 times in certain places, there was lunch provided, and rum and cokes!

      The falls themselves are part of what I think was like a state park here in the US. There was an option to have an employee come with us and take pictures of the adventure. It was an extra $45 I believe. Worth every penny. We got amazing action shots, Carlos helped him stage us in cool places and we didn't have to worry about lugging a camera.

      I would 100% recommend this tour and we will book with Mama Iguana again when we come back to the DR. Thanks Carlos!

      This was an awesome experience for me and my wife. Carlos was an amazing guide who took care of every detail. They will pick you up outside of the port and drive you to the falls in a private van. The lunch provide was great as well, much needed after the hike. I would highly recommend this tour and you can save some money vs booking with your cruise ship. 5 stars for Carlos!

      We went for a cruise excursion in Puerto Plata and it ended up being our favorite part of the trip!

      Our tour guide Carlos was very friendly and helpful. The 35 minute ride in the van from the port to the park with the waterfalls was clean and comfortable. The van held about 12 but my wife and I were there with another family of 4.

      Once at the park, we met up with another group of about 20 and hiked up to the first waterfall, about 30 minutes, but we made stops to drink water and rest on the benches provided. Our guide would jump or slide down first and another would stay up top to help us jump or slide down. The water was cold but refreshing on a hot humid day! The views were absolutely amazing and such a cool experience!

      After the falls, a traditional Dominican barbecue lunch was provided and we had rum & Coke to finish out the day. We highly recommend this tour! We would not recommend it though for little kids, older adults, or pregnant women. It’s highly active and the jumps/slides could be scary for younger kids.

      Overall it was really fun and we enjoyed it so much!

      This was our second time visiting Damajagua waterfalls, but our first time using Iguana Mama Adventure. Carlos was our main guide during the tour and he was very personable and friendly. After a short hike to the top of the mountain, we went down a total of 3 waterslides and 2 jumps due to a lack of rain this past season. We still enjoyed our time and felt we got our moneys worth with the included lunch and adult beverages! Definitely recommend!

      Loved this tour of waterfalls with Carlos and our driver Pablo! The roads seemed crazy but the driving was smooth and we felt safe. Van was roomy for a group of seven, and it didn’t feel like we were being crammed in at all. Carlos was a charming, helpful, and informative guide, happy to answer questions, and of course we got back to port in plenty of time. We were happy our money went to a local company instead of the cruise line. Pre-booking, they were very responsive and friendly via email and after booking had very clear instructions and advice on what to bring. Really appreciate the attention to details and professionalism. Can’t recommend this company enough!

      This tour was excellent. First the walk out to the meeting point is a good 15 minutes and outside the gate to the port. Jose and Carlos from the tour company were there to meet us at the bus. They were both great. Jose did a great job of leading the tour, entertaining us on the bus ride and making sure everything was done right. Carlos helped do the actual tour of the falls with the guides in the National Park. The park guides Charly and Ari were also excellent. The hike is a bit challenging uphill and takes about 30 minutes, but the trip down the falls was spectacular and well worth the walk up. Charly and Ari along with Carlos did a fabulous job of guiding us and helping everyone navigate the falls. We did 12 falls. I believe that it was the perfect amount. After the tour we also had a buffet lunch at the park that was very good. This was an excellent experience . I would do it again in a minute.

      We had a phenomenal experience with Iguana Mama visiting the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua! We were fortunate to be the only passengers from our ship to book through Iguana Mama, so we got a private tour! We were given clear directions on how to meet the guide. The ride was air conditioned, and we were given bottles of water. I appreciated the guide giving a thorough explanation of what to expect for the day. Upon arriving at the falls, were were given additional water, safety equipment, and an opportunity to use the restroom before our hike. The Iguana Mama guide joined us with the park guide for the entire adventure. The hike was about 45 minutes uphill. However the entire hike was shaded, which helped! We enjoyed the incredible opportunity to hike, jump, swim, and slide through the waterfalls. We even passed other larger tour groups due to our small size. We never felt rushed. We always felt very safe. The guides were encouraging and fun! After the falls, we had a shorter hike back. We were able to shower and change into a clean dry clothing. Then we enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch and some rum drinks. We would highly recommend this excursion. It was the highlight of our entire vacation. Booking through Iguana Mama was the smartest decision. We received personalized attention, delicious food & drinks, and more waterfalls for less than the cruise ships charge. We felt safe the entire time and returned to the ship with plenty of time. We would highly recommend this experience.

      Hola mls443! A huge thanks for choosing us and this amazing review and recommendation. Very appreciated!!! We try very hard not to cancel a tour for minimums not being met, and this is one of the reasons why. We hate to disappoint. Thanks for this detailed description and I sincerely hope we'll have the pleasure of taking you on another adventure in the future! Cheers! Lidia / Iguana Mama

      Waterfalls of Damajagus/Cruise ship passengers was the best experience. The port was beautiful and directions to pickup were very easy to follow. The transportation was brand new and Carlos lead us on a wonderful adventure. Due to low rain fall we were only able to access 7 of the slide/drops, our refund was sent before we returned from our trip. Next time we hope to try the zip lines and waterfalls. I recommend hiring a photographer (Felix was great) at the falls for them to capture the memories for you. Lunch was a buffet of regional food that was quite good. Water was provided before the tour and alcoholic drinks and soda were offered after lunch.
