Get ready for the thrill of a lifetime! At about 20 kilometers of Puerto Plata lies on of the best kept adventurous secrets in the Dominican Republic. Mother Nature has crafted breathtaking waterfalls, etched out of limestone, All for your enjoyment. Once arrived at the 12th waterfall the adventure begins! You will go through each level by jumping, swimming and sliding down natural waterslides, following the expert instructions from our guides. Waterfalls like “The Virgin”, “La Tinajita” await you! After a good 2.5 hours of water sport fun we finally arrive at the last fall, called “The Virgin”. Legend has it that the Taino Indians who inhabited the area built a statue of the Virgin Saint of the Dominican Republic, La Altagracia. Unfortunately, the passage of time has completely destroyed any trace of their handy work. The beautiful waterfall however, has survived.

This was a great time for our whole family. Be careful when booking online as we thought we were getting all 27 and only ended up on tour for the 12. Variety of jumping & sliding - nothing too scary or intimidating. Lunch was good...More

Did this excursion while on a cruise port stop at Puerto Plata. Did with my 9 and 11 year old kids, they loved it. Jumped of a cliff and went down natural rock slides. Must try !

I expected more jumps (they're are only 3 or 4) on the 12 falls excursion but it was still a great experience with great staff! Even if it's a little overpriced I feel, it was worth it! Great activity!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Just wondering if this tour still includes riding through the country side and while riding in the open air jeep, families and children come up to the road for candy. I have done this excursion several times but I haven't been to Puerto Plata in 6 years. Previous times the jeep/truck would drive all throughout the country side and seen families and children come to the road and yell for candy. Go to a local home and also do the waterfalls (7 plateaus).
