Waterfall Tours :: Ciguapa Falls Cascading

Tour Runs: Tue || Sat

Get away from the crowds with the ultimate “off the beaten track” excursion. Hike deep into the Septentrional Mountain range and discover the cascading experience of Ciguapa Falls. Leap off a series of waterfalls as you immerse yourself in a Dominican wilderness discovered by only the most intrepid tourists. 

We start the day meeting our guide at Iguana Mama 7.45am before picking up breakfast to eat while we wend our way up the 45 minutes to base camp. Enjoy the spectacular views as you ponder the delights awaiting you in the canyon. Base camp is where we meet the other guides and get you geared up in wetsuit, harness, helmet and life preserver. A quick safety briefing is followed by 5 more minutes van time before we hike down into the canyon. Feel your adrenaline rise as the descent gets steeper and you start to hear and then catch glimpses of the azure water rushing below. This is what you came for, feel the cool water hit you as you leap into the river for the first of around 12 jumps up to heights of 30 feet or 10 meters. 2 hours later you'll emrge form the river amazed at what you just acheived and phsyched for hike out. 20 minutes steep climb to the donkey meeting point and a further 20 minutes taking in the sights and smells of the incredible landscape around you. Stoked and hungry we stop for a delicous Dominican lunch to relive the trip before dropping you back in Cabarete at around 2.00pm. Siesta time!

Highly recomended! Help the community and your legs by hiring a donkey for the hike out (approx. 45 minutes uphill) They cost US$10.00 per donkey and all proceeds go directly to the donkey's owner.
