Xander, was the best...
Najee_W, Sept 2023
Xander, was the best guide. He made me want to do the tour again! I would say if there was any history or fun facts about the waterfalls, they should share more of those details.
Definitely a bucket list must.
Michael_S, Sept 2023
Only negative was only 7 falls snd slides were open. Need to be in shape to handle the hike up the mountain.
A great excursion in the falls after a hike
Sean_W, Sept 2023
We had such an amazing time with Xavier and crew! They were very funny and informative! We had such a great time and would definitely do this excursion again
Money well spent
Thomas_M, Sept 2023
Our tour guide Tony was amazing. He taught us about the local culture, entertained us on the bus ride and provided a great and memorable experience. The option to jump off the waterfall or slide down was great. We had an amazing time. Strongly recommend.
Waterfall wonders!
Donna_M, Aug 2023
After an awesome hike, it was great to slide down the rocks and jump into the refreshing water. Our guide, Coach Winston, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and added to our positive experience! Very fun excursion!
Good time
Jason_R, July 2023
We were met by Coach Winston and he stayed with us the entire time. He was fun and made it a great experience. Yunior, Flacco and all the guys made the tour fun. Would definitely go again!
Response from Host, July 2023
Awesome! Winston is smiling his famous smile :-) We hope you do come back real soon!
Best excursion ever!
Melissa_P, June 2023
This was one of our best excursions! Well organized and supervised, never felt unsafe! Will do again!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you! We AIM to be the best. Safety first - then the ADVENTURE :-) HAppy Sailing!
HEIDIE_M, June 2023
The tour was amazing. A great hike and jumping from the cliffs into the water was an adventure and a half. Super fun would do it again.
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you for your kind review and the Amazing headline :-) So happy you would "do it again"!
Memorable and fun adventure!
Michelle_C, June 2023
Such a memorable experience! The hike to the top took about 45 minutes but we stopped a lot so it wasn't too strenuous. The portion in the falls was so fun! We did the jumps which were nerve wrecking but super rewarding to conquer. They did have options to walk down or slide instead if you don't want to jump. When we first got there, it felt a little chaotic but the waterfall guides and staff were extremely organized. I was impressed that our tour operator guide, Winston, also came on the entire adventure with us and was the only outside tour guide that did that. He made sure everyone was accounted for and helped secure glasses and items so they didn't get wet. I was a little nervous bringing my phone even though I had a dry bag but it probably would have been ok. They did have an option to buy a USB with pictures for $45/family which wasn't too bad. The "happy juice" on the way back and freshly picked bananas were a great treat. We left around 8am and were back by 12:30 (ship onboard time 2:30 so had plenty of time!). Highly recommend and I'd gladly do the same tour again!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you so very much for the detailed review! Our company team includes our famous "Jump Coaches" - you jump, we jump :-) Glad you JUMPED! That is awesome!! Our fiesta return with "happy Juice" (love it) celebrates our Jump Team's (you) accomplishment. Hope to see you again one day real soon.
Do this excursion!!
Michelle_P, June 2023
We had so much fun! The jumps are about 15 feet or so, not too scary but really fun! It is a hike to get there but they take plenty of breaks. Definitely recommend!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you for recommended our REAL adventure with Damajagua Waterfalls :-) Hope you enjoyed our fiesta on your return to port!
Fun jumping in the Falls
Daniel_V, May 2023
We had a great time. The guides were incredible and the trip was well worth the money. Definitely bring water shoes and be prepared for a good hike up the the 1st waterfall.
Response from Host, May 2023
GO JUMP TEAM 2023! Thank you ever so much for your kind review. HAPPY SAILING!
Sarah_K, May 2023
This was easily the highlight of our trip! I loved this excursion! The fun started the second we met our guides (Micael and someone else whom I forgot lol). We learned a lot of cool history about the country and culture on the way to the falls. The hike was beautiful but be aware that it is not for the unfit, unstable or fearful. It involves jumping from high areas. However, the natural waterfalls were breathtaking. Thank you for an unforgettable day!
Response from Host, May 2023
THANK YOU! We are so very glad that our Damajagua Waterfalls Adventure was THE highlight of your cruise :-) Hope to see you again real soon!
Great 1/2 day
john_w, May 2023
Great 1/2 day excursion. Pick up was an easy short walk . Xander was a great knowledgeable guide. We would do this again.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you! Xander is super-happy you thought the tour and he were great :-) Hope to see you again - HAPPY SAILING!
A bit disappointing
Deborah_C, Apr 2023
The tour guides were great but only got to jump off two waterfalls and slide down three…long hike for very few experiences.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hello! Thank you for the time you took to review. I think perhaps you are reviewing another operator's experience (sometimes this will happen because of our name, "Puerto Plata Adventures"). On our route through the falls, the minimum jumps and slides is 7 and often we will repeat one of the jumps (the main fall/pool). It is not physically possible to hike past the jumps/slides as this is how we get back down :-) Hopefully you will return one day so you can experience our REAL Adventure!
It was a bit of a walk...
Kristen_P, Apr 2023
It was a bit of a walk from the cruise ship to the meeting point, but well worth it. The "hike" up is not too bad and they take several breaks for you to catch your breath. The offer to have a photographer with you throughout the excursion is well worth the $45 dollars! We took home loads of photos and videos. And our photographer made the adventure even more fun. Winston was a great guide throughout the day...he gave us loads of information on the Dominican on the bus ride to the waterfalls. On the way home he served drinks, played music and even stopped at a roadside stand to get us all fresh bananas.
Memory of a Lifetime watching my 72 yrold FIL jump off 18ft waterfall!!
Stephani_R, Apr 2023
I kept reading that this was a highlight of so many’s vacation so we gave it a whirl! So glad we did. This was by far an amazing trip with Winston and Andriw. We were on a cruise, docked off of Puerto Plata. It’s about a mile walk from the boat to them so be sure to move quickly. We had some in our group rent water shoes for $2, I would recommend bringing your own. They are weak and fragile and left blisters. I brought my camera in a waterproof pouch and am so thankful!! If you don’t like to jump, stairs are easily accessible but there are 2 slides you have to go down, no other choice. Be sure to keep elbows in, my MIL got a nasty Dominican tattoo!! What a blast and memory forever. Thanks guys!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
WOW! Good for you ALL! Your Father-in-Law is 72-years young :-) Head Jump Coach Winston is an amazing person. We are so thrilled that we helped with your, "memory of a lifetime". Thanks for such a fun and detailed review. Happy Sailing!
Waterfalls and jump party
mbsilberberg, Apr 2023
Puerto Plata adventures was great experience especially because of the great guide Sander who made the trip. Only wish the park service guides would have broken up the group into smaller groups. LOTS of people and waiting as a result. But the experience with PUerto Plata Adventures was great.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you! We are so glad we could be a part of your day and that the experience was great for you :-) It is the busiest time of year at Damajagua but our team consists of our highly skilled and super-awesome Jump Coaches like "Sander". You (our Jump Team) is our only focus - it is our goal and mission to provide Adventure and fun in a safe environment! Happy Sailing!!
Such an incredible adventure!!!
Carla_D, Apr 2023
This excursion was so incredibly fun!!! We met our bus outside of the ship's port area (directions were very easy). The tour guides were easy to understand and extremely knowledgable. We got to the beginning point of the excursion, which was sort of like a pavilion at a "state park". There were bathrooms, a bar & restaurant and a desk where you could purchase pictures taken during your activity. We hiked up the mountain then either jumped or slid down into the waterfall waterway. (The hike was somewhat strenuous - I would not attempt it if I were completely out of shape or have zero activity in my life). The water was cold but you got used to it as the day went by. If I do this again, I would wear old tennis shoes. I had on "strappy" Teva sandals which bothered my foot due to the sand. The guides were PHENOMENAL!! They took such good care of everyone! Overall, it was totally worth it! It was a great day!!!!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
THANK YOU! We aim for "Fun Tours and Real Adventures" :-) Old tennis shoes are really a great option. Our Jump Coaches (Damajagua guides) are super-wonderful and LOVE what they do. We are so glad to have been a part of your day in Puerto Plata! HAPPY SAILING!
Fun adventure!
Sarah_A, Apr 2023
We had a great time! Such a fun adventure. We felt very safe, had a blast. Booked this for a cruise port of call in Amber Cove. You’re provided excellent detailed directions for meet up. It is a bit of a walk from the cruise terminal but we didn’t mind. This is definitely not an excursion for anyone with mobility issues. Would 100% recommend booking this vs thru cruise line- the cruise excursions don’t allow you to do the jumps. Our tour guides Tony and Chandler were great, so much fun, friendly, and really make sure everyone is comfortable and safe.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hello! Tony and Chandler will be thrilled to read this. They are a blast at "work" with us as well :-) Our Jump Coaches mix the prefect blend of safety, fun and Adventure. Glad you didn't mind the walk - we do all we can to make it worth it!
What fun we had!
Elaine_J, Mar 2023
We were pleasantly surprised to find that sliding on these rocks was actually quite smooth. As a senior citizen I was a little apprehensive but everything was perfectly safe. Tony took good care of us. Beautiful scenery and great thrills.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for your kind review. We are happy you felt safe in our care and enjoyed the scenery and thrills :-) Happy Sailing!!
