It was ok
Rikkesphr_S, Dec 2021
The trip was okay, but we were dissappinted by how short the experience was. We did only see 7 waterfalls. By the 7 waterfalls you could only jump 2, 1 was only looking, and the rest were sliding. They said the waterfalls had dried out, which isnt viators fault, but they could have warned about during the booking or offeret us something else. We got picked up 40 minutes before the actual meeting time that was sent to us by e-mail. They said they changed the meeting time, but we never received anything about the change in on whatsapp or e-mail. We had to travel far in an open safari wagon which was very cold and windy. The guides were very nice and friendly. 5 stars to them. The food was nice and the turistshop was actually cute. I would not recommend this experience if you travel from Cabarete or further away. The drive is too long for too little.
Completely disappointed
Claudia_N, Aug 2021
I booked and paid this excursion one month in advanced. Two days before, they informed they might cancel the trip because the minimum couldn’t be met. I pinged them again one day before asking them for an update. They told me the trip will be canceled for sure. I had to ask them for the full refund two times. Interestingly, they marked the trip as Complete which is definitely not true. I was worried they would never refund me but they did at end.

The climb is tiring , staff was wonderful and encouraged us to rest . The waterfalls were refreshing and FUN
Went to only 5 waterfalls
HyunJung_K, Sept 2019
Although tour guide and local guides were friendly and nice, we ended up seeing around only 5 waterfalls with just two of them jumps, rest sliding down a small „waterfall“ The entire tour took less than 3 hours, the actual waterfall part less than an hour. 7 hour is clearly a false advertisement. They should clearly indicate that tour is subject to weather condition (dried up water due to dry season for example) otherwise it‘s very misleading. Disappointed overall.

Adventure, excitement, and fun. I had never done anything like this before. Jumping from over 30 feet into a narrow river, sliding off from natural rock slides, amazing. The views of the rock formations were like nothing I had ever seen before. The guides went out of their way to make sure everyone felt safe and offered their assistance to anyone who couldn't jump yes, my wife was one of those people shh..... This is an adventure for all ages... if you don't mind some hiking and a spike in adrenaline. The lunch provided was excellent. And the Dominican rum, the rum punch, nothing more to say.

AudreyD_S, Apr 2017
This was so much fun BUT it is for the 12 waterfalls, not all 27. I wanted all 27 and if you read the first few paragraphs it keeps mentioning 27 and only far down does it say that the adventure starts at the 12th fall. I think that is misleading. They need to put 12 in the title. We were very disappointed when we stopped at 12 and we were expecting to keep hiking up. That being aside, it was the most fun part of our vacation. The guides were incredible and the lunch was very good. Also, all the drinks you could want. Definitely recommend but know this is for 12 falls only. If it's a cloudy day, all 27 would get cold, because we got cold after 12 since it was overcast.

The Damajagua excursion is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Well worth a day of your vacation if you are in the Puerto Plata area. Make sure you call to confirm your reservation the day before your trip. You are picked up from your hotel lobby at an agreed upon time in an open air truck with bench seating. From there you drive to the waterfalls site and pick up your helmets and life jackets. As a women, I would recommend wearing your bathing suit with work out shorts and a tank top over it and water shoes. The life jacket you will be wearing will be damp, if not wet when you receive it. The tank helps with any chafing and the shorts will be practical for the hike. Leave behind jewelry and sunglasses. Your personal belongings will be locked in the cab of the truck while you are out on your excursion. The hike is about 45 minutes and mostly uphill to the 12 waterfalls. There are two big jumps and a couple of chutes that you will go down. You always have the option to climb down instead of jumping, however I would not recommend this trip to anyone not used to strenuous activity, people with major fears of water/heights, or children under the age of 13. The whole trip is very beautiful and scenic and the guides are AMAZING. TIP THEM! Afterwards you have a buffet lunch with booze, take a short trip though the city and to a local stone carver and then back to the hotel. My only complaints were that we were picked up a half hour late from our hotel and while the city/stone carvers trip was educational, by that time we were wet, cold, and tired and just wanted to get back to the hotel. Make sure you purchase the zip drive of photos for 45. It is well worth it. They send you photos and video of the whole trip.

This tour was the highlight of my trip to DR, The sights and experience was AMAZING. I felt that the view the breath taking. I felt blessed to have this experience. DR tourism don't promote this experience has much as they should. Its a complete water experience so pictures are limited - if you have a chance to take this tour grab it. I don't swim and the tour guides caught me after each dive. Its been six months and I still remember it as one of my best days of 2016. My partner was unfamiliar with what the tour involved and he was equally exuberant about the experience.

The scenery was beautiful, the sights great, the tour guides knowledgeable and very friendly. I loved the tour and would recommend it to everyone, who likes dipping in water

stephen_s, Oct 2016
This tour was not as difficult as originally expected. The hike to the top was not so strenuous and the falls themselves were not too scary to jump. However, this is quite a different activity then what one would normally expect, and made for a very entertaining morning. The guides were very capable and made sure everyone stayed safe. The only thing I would caution, is that the ruff, rocky terrain does make it easy to sprain an ankle, if not careful. I would easily recommend this tour.

Osvaldo N, July 2016
Great tour but physically demanding. Not for those who are not in good physical condition. Long hike mostly incline, many stairs involved at the onset of the excursion. But a great reward awaits those who get through it--beautiful waterfalls and coves carved out by nature in the Dominican rain forest. Good hiking/water shoes a must! Get some with thick rubber soles. The trails are very rocky.

Abigail P, May 2016
So beautiful. Was not informed of the hour long hike up stairs before the waterfalls though. And after the excursion the bus driver went 30 min out of the way for us to stop at little shops that did not have anything good to buy. We were tired and just wanted to get home. It was supposed to be a half day excursion that turned into a full day one because of his stop.

Gladys Fuentes Loaiza, Mar 2016
This was the first time I make a tour like this so it was incredible, fun and exciting . Amauri the driver very professional, the tour guide Ottoniel Otto very creative, friendly and courteous, at all times, very serious about his work and the paparazzi Felix, I can say, was very professional with the photos and video, was an unforgettable tour. Bori and Papito very willing to help. I recommend it for people who like extreme sports, jump from the top of the falls, walk in Montana with rocks outdoors and swimming in cold water, this is refreshing, especially after a long walk. The buffet, typical food, delicious, then, in the way back to the hotel ... totally fun. :-

This is the best tour of our stay in DR. The tour guide was very cheerful and funny. We definitely recommend everyone who is adventurous enough to give this a try!
Ein Ausflug der anderen Art

Ein toller Ausflug zu einem wundervollen Plätzchen auf der Erde. Der Aufstieg war zwar nicht unanstrengend, dennoch hat es sich gelohnt
Tamara_A, Sept 2019
La visita a las cascadas muy bonita, no es necesario ser deportista pero si tener ganas de saltar al agua, puntuales, amables y el guía un 10, repetiría sin duda con Runners Adventures en Puerto Plata

Marcel K, May 2016
Ein unvergesslicher Ausflug. Der Aufstieg ist etwas anstrengend aber auf Grund der Pausen problemlos zu bewältigen. Bei jedem Wasserfall besteht die Möglichkeit ihn zu umgehen, falls man es sich doch nicht traut, aber bis auf den Vorletzten knapp 4 Meter hoch sind alle harmlos und es lohnt sich. Da während der ganzen Zeit 2 Lifeguards die Tour begleiten kommt in keinem Moment Angst auf. Zu empfehlen ist es hinterher von dem begleitenden Paperazzi die Videos / Fotos käuflich zu erwerben Das Paket kostet 45 Dollar, es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall und die Fotos sind nicht mit denen einer wasserfesten Kamera zu vergleichen. Die Bezahlung und Übergabe findet dann am nächsten Tag an der Rezeption des eigenen Hotels statt. Ein rundherum gelungener Ausflug und für jedermann zu empfehlen!!!
