Salto Jimenoa is closed
Oct 2021 • Couples
It’s closed as the bridges are under construction. You can park your car and take a few pics before the river. There are trails you can follow but it’s unclear where they lead. Expect to tip the police.

The Falls are CLOSED!! Don’t go!!
Aug 2019 • Family
I have been to the falls many times in the past and they are incredible - really so much fun to hike to and then swim. But, these falls have been closed for over a year. The normal entrance is locked up because one of the suspension bridges was destroyed by a rock slide. There is no immediate plan to fix the bridge.

Not the season
May 2019 • Friends
It's almost dry and the bridges are broken. But in the other side you have a trail with like 850mts with some bbq stations, natural pools and a pine plantation at the end.

But we thought it was worth it. We were the only ones at the bottom of the falls. In the rainy season the trail would be a bit slippery.

It's totally worth - The Hike back up to your vehicle!!!
Jul 2018
Such a beautiful waterfall and set of pools! It's perfect for picnics, spending quality tranquil time together, and especially if you bring your yoga mat! The sounds of the remote falls and fauna will heal and soothe your vacation energies while you are there. When you are all done and ready to go elsewhere the hike back up the hill is demanding, but totally worth it for all you have enjoyed visiting the Jimenoa waterfalls.

It’s not easy to get to the place, but it’s sooooo worth it. The water is very cold, I happen to go in August, so I didn’t mind the cold water to cool off after going down the mountain to get there

Wonderful place
Aug 2018 • Friends
I visited this waterfall as part of canyoning tour in Jarabacoa. It was closed for regular visits in the time due to the broken bridge so we were the only people there. Breathtaking experience!

Salto Uno (ala Jurassic Park, well sort of)
Jun 2018 • Couples
It took me a while to figure out where everything is so I’m going to try to clarify a few things here for others. We went to Salto Jimenoa Uno because the suspension bridges to Salto Jimenoa 2 remain collapsed as of late June 2018. Uno is the fall they used in the beginning of Jurassic Park, but I would recommend you watch the clip AFTER you visit Uno. The entrance is a little dirt road down the main Jarabacoa-Constanza road located at the 7 km to Jarabacoa marker if you are coming from the south/east, and past the 40 km to Constanza marker if you are coming from Jarabacoa. If you zoom in on Google Map, you can actually see the little dirt road connected to the actual trail. The coordinates are (19.0918206,-70.5983940). There is a small area for parking (3-4 cars) once you drive to the bottom. The shed (see picture) where you pay for the entrance is difficult to see from the road, and you will get one free bottle of water for the round trip hike.

I would recommend the following if you want to see this much discussed waterfall:

1. Wear good shoes with good traction. The rocks near the fall are very slippery when only mildly wet. With some searching you can find suitable natural hiking sticks, but you might wish to bring your own.

2. Don’t go if it’s rainy. The climb down is very steep (at places 45 degrees of incline or more), and with leaves rocks and mud you can easily slide down. We do quite a bit of hiking and we were slipping at places.

3. The climb back up can be very strenuous if you have not gotten used to the humidity. There are 3-4 benches where you can rest, but you need to be comfortable climbing steep hills in high humidity to do this.

4. Go only if you want to appreciate a serene and elegant water fall, but NOT if you want to see the Jurassic Park waterfall or the biggest waterfall in the Caribbean.
