We spent a day river tubing, eating a great Dominican meal and taking in beautiful views with our family, including a 9 and 6 year old. Carlos and Roberto were excellent guides and quickly became part of our family. The river is very clear, the water temperature was perfect and everyone enjoyed their time, including our college age children. Fernando was an excellent driver which is a not easy. The lunch was served at a small private house over looking the river with great views of the value. If you are looking to get away from the beach and do something relaxing that every can enjoy we recommend this trip.

My friend and I chose the cascading excursion in Ciguapa Falls and man, did we have a blast! It might have been my favorite day of the 8 that we were in the Dominican Republic. We got picked up at our place and everything was taken care of for the rest of the day from then on. Robert was out guide and Alvaro was our driver. Both were professional and safe (which you have to be), but also extremely fun and energetic. It was just me and my buddy, so almost like our own private excursion. This location was so beautiful and it was just such a blast to keep making our way down the river canyon for continuous waterfall cliff jumps in this serene setting. You stop at Blue Moon Cafe for some coffee and to suit up on the way to the falls, then stop back after the tour is done to get a huge, delicious lunch, which is much needed to recharge the batteries. We got great pics and videos afterwards as well! Just checked them out last night. Robert really is an awesome guide and Alvaro is a solid driver on those loco roads. Book this trip (especially with these two) and you'll be happy you did!!

did this lazy river trip with our two older grand daughters and our tour guide was roberto. what a fun time. our guide and driver were very attentive and made sure we were always safe and secure. they picked us up in front of our condo and the drive into the mountains to get to the river and a treat in it self. we saw many small villages and the scenery was incredible it was nice to see places away from the tourist area of cabarete and once we arrived to our destination which was a beautiful casa on a mountain or hill top and the views were spectacular. after we drop off our stuff we went down to the river and did our adventure of the lazy river and at the end you had the choice of doing a zip line and dropping into the water a few if us did it and was exciting and there was a dairy farm there and there was interesting as the farmer has to do everything by hand nothing like in north amerca. we walked back up the hill to the casa and had a wonderful drinks and a great lunch. i would recommend this trip for anyone who want a lazy trip and lots of fun and into doing something different. again ask for roberto as he was the best

We went on the tour of El Choco National Park with guides Carlos and Robert. It was awesome! We had 4 adults and 5 boys (ages 9-14). We learned a ton about the history of the DR and lots of native plants while walking through the beautiful rain forest. We saw several of the many limestone caves in the park, but the highlight was climbing down a ladder into one of them and getting to swim in the crystal clear water, by flashlight! One of the guides swam with us (and helped one person at a time climb up to jump off of a rock), while the other held lights and took tons of photos and video for us. I highly recommend the company. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and fun!

On a girls trip looking for adventure and we definitely found it with Carlos! He and his team took us on a steep hike down to the canyon. By time we got to the water in our wet suits we were so ready for the cool crisp beautiful blue water. There were multiple lower jumps, 3 high jumps with one option of repelling. Carlos took amazing photos and videos the entire time. It does require a pretty steep and strenuous hike up out of the canyon. There was an option to ride a donkey but we went for the full hike. Long hard but amazing day! The water is so worth the hard work. And Carlos was patient and supportive with our age diverse group. It won’t be easy but things this beautiful never are!

My brother and I went on a trip to El Choco National Park in Cabarete through Iguana Mama. Our tour guide Robert was amazing! He was so knowledgeable and was prepared for everything (He gave us some pretty awesome ponchos for the rain). If you want to see some of the natural beauty of the DR, I would highly recommend going through Iguana Mama -- And if you have the option, book a tour with Robert, he knows how to have a good time!

Me and my partner booked the 7 waterfalls with Iguana Mama so we had something to do when it wasn’t windy at the beach. It was a really fun morning activity, we were picked up from our hotel at 8.30am and dropped back around 1pm. Carlos and the National Park team were great, we learnt a lot about the Dominican Republic and felt really safe throughout. “It’s a great time to experience the waterfalls as it’s pretty quiet due to covid. We also enjoyed a really yummy lunch and drank LOTS of rum.

We highly recommend Carlos and Iguana Mama. Thanks again guys!

This trip was awesome! I had researched about the tours and couldn't wait to go to the giant Magic Mushroom! Our guide Robert was beyond awesome! He was fun, talkative, gave us many information, hiked with us all the way through the water and stones and thick jungle, did all that while taking care of our safety, leading us, and taking photos and videos of us! respect! Our driver Maximo was veery nice and drove us safely. Diomere accompanied us in the hike and did a great job preparing lines and taking care too. I never really jumped that high before, but Roberts instructions were clear and I did the leap of faith, finally jumping the 35feet from the Mushroom. We had so much adrenaline!! We were brave, felt adventurous, and had so much fun!! The jungle is lush, the water so clear! The adrenaline so high! When I had motionsickness they took really good care of me and took it easy, turning off the AC for me and giving me breaks, very considerate! The photos and videos turned out great and will keep our memories forever.Thank you Robert, Maximo and Diomere for that amazing day full of adventure!!!

Love love love this place! The money goes to helping fund a medical and dental clinic for the community. Our guide Robert was so fun and nice and taught me a bit of Spanish along the way. Diego was a quiet and gentle driver and got us over the 3 mile dirt road without much turbulence. This is our 2nd time visiting and I would come back again for sure.

Great company to work with, received e-mail about week trip to our excursion was cut short from 27 falls to 7 due to current dough. We received partial refund by the time we got home from our cruise. Our guide Carlos was great, by the time we were off the ship he was there waiting for us to take us to the falls and was with us throughout the whole trip. We would will do this excursion again and hopefully do all 27 falls
