It's a bit scary, but is a must-do! Only jumped from 12. I went with a fun group. Some could swim, some couldn't. If you like to get your heart pumping, it's worth a try.

Don't leave without going here. This was fun and totally great. Your guides are very informative and helpful. We were lucky to have our guides take pictures of our wonderful day going through the waterfalls.

This was a fantastic place to go. The hike is extremely easy -maybe 10 minutes with minimal elevation gain along a dirt path. There is some areas where you have to walk down along the rocks of a creek and have to be careful of your footing. You don't have to be very fit to do the swim up the river either. The guides were fantastic since if you need help getting up a waterfall, they will hoist you up. I had more fun going up the river but coming down the waterfalls was definitely a blast as well. You do about 5 or 7 waterfalls in total. If you are more of an adventurous type, I would try to arrange going to the waterfalls on your own (not part of an excursion) so you can do the whole 27 waterfalls. If I go back to the Dominican, this is what I plan on doing. Also, bring your own water shoes and a waterproof camera.

It was the best attraction to do in Puerto Plata. it's a middle extreme experience since you have to jump from a high distance into the water. The accompanying staff where pretty friendly and helpfull.
