Description


  • Round trip transportation from your Amber Cove cruise terminal in Puerto Plata!
  • English speaking, local certified Puerto Playa shore excursion guides!
  • Air-conditioned excursion vehicles!
  • Guided climb up Damajagua Falls!
  • A scenic drive of the Maimon countryside!
  • Safety equipment including a helmet and life jacket!
  • All taxes, fees and entrance fees included!

Discover the beauty of the Amber Cove Puerto Plata rainforest and climb up the Damajagua waterfalls and then jump and slide your way back down! Dive into pristine waters with your friendly local Amber Cove cruise excursion guides.

Your adventure begins when you meet your English speaking guide outside your Amber Cove cruise terminal in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Your English speaking shore excursion guide will help you aboard the transportation for a short 20-minute ride through the countryside of Puerto Plata to the Damajagua Waterfalls. Along the way, they will give you info about what you can expect to see and do. Note: the transport will either be a van or minibus depending on the size of your group.

The "27 Charcos" as the locals called it, is an eco-tourism paradise in Damajagua! 27 waterfalls with their 27 natural pools, some natural smooth water slides carved out of the limestone by the force of the water and amazing rainforest trails. You will arrive at the base camp where your guide will provide you with a helmet and life jacket. Your guide will give you a brief explanation of the safety rules and then you are ready for the adventure called Amber Cove Damajagua Park Waterfalls Excursion.

Peace Corps volunteer, Joe Kennedy (great nephew to president JFK) was instrumental in setting up the facilities, visitor center, arranging the training, and safety standards. Now each excursion guide is highly trained and certified in both first aid and CPR. They are trained to assure that you will have a safe and fun time!

There is a guide at each of the Damajagua waterfalls to help you to climb up against the water like a salmon going upstream. Each small waterfall is different; some have natural steps and others have a wood ladder to make easier to the to the top. In this Damajagua Park adventure, you will be able to jump and climb a maximum of 12 of the waterfalls.

If climbing the falls is a fun experience, the way back down is a pure blast! Jump from the rocks into the pool or use the natural toboggan like water slides to get down; the experienced local guides will tell you which is the best option in each case, always considering your safety. This is great fun for young visitors and those young at heart.

Once at the base camp, you have time to relax, use the facilities or even to buy a delicious buffet lunch at the local restaurant (cost not included). On the way back to the cruise terminal, your Damajagua waterfalls shore excursion guide will take you through the Maimon Lands; this protected area is well-known due to its unique, cultural and historical background.

After this exciting Amber Cove Damajagua Park Waterfalls Excursion, you will be back on your Amber Cove cruise terminal in time to get back on board your cruise ship.

NOTE: A minimum of 6 participants is required to run this excursion.

We did the waterfalls tours last week when we were in Amber Cove. We booked this excursion through Shore Excursioneer instead of through our ship. It was much cheaper than what the ship offered. This was an awesome tour. We were part of Jesus' "sexy family." We didn't get to do as many falls as we thought because it was so dry. The walk to meet the bus was about a 30 minute walk from the ship, so make sure you allot the time to get there. Also, the hike is quite difficult since i'm kind of out of shape. :) We also purchased the photos from the "paparazzi" Definitely worth the money to purchase these. We would definitely do this excursion again!

I find most Excursions available to cruise passengers to be very cheesy and cliche. However, this one broke the mold. It was worth every penny. I would not hesitate to do it again if we are ever back in Amber Cove.

We did the 12 falls. Our guides were awesome!! They were very attentive - and left no one behind. We hired Regalos Del Caribe - Charcot De Damajagua to take pictures. There were 8 of us. Our photographer was incredible. He took 200 pictures and 15+ videos. That was the best $50 we spent on the trip. If you are going to do this, you MUST hire the photographers. The pictures were awesome!! I have had such a good time watching the videos. We were all over 65 - and we survived! I don’t think I could have done the 27 falls ...... it was tough enough hiking up to the 12 falls.....but I am glad I did it. Thanks everyone at Damajagua for making this a trip to remember!!

There was 11 of us on this excursion, 3 families with children ranging from 12-15 years of age. Jesus was our tour guide, assisting him were Kelvin and another guy that I can't remember his name. We hiked a LONG way up the mountains but once we reached the top, it was ALL WORTH IT. The waterfalls were absolutely stunning and the water was clear and so refreshing. I would suggest wearing tennis shoes or some type of very nice and supportive water shoes, as the water shoes we purchased at Walmart/Target are not very good for this hike.

After reading the reviews for this excursion we were sold! Originally we planned on booking with Carnival but were excited to find it for almost half the price with (tour operator). This trip was a girls trip and me and my two gal friends were in a group with a couple from Ohio. As we started the tour we quickly realized the Carnival groups were large (over 20 people) and we were so happy that we booked outside the ship because our small group sailed past the large groups that had to constantly stop for breaks. We also were assigned our own photographer from the park and with such a small group of 5 we got over a hundred pics of the three of us. We originally hadn't planned on purchasing the $50 USB of the pics but with so many great shots we decided it was worth the price. The actual hike was great and so worth the ride down, swimming through water passages and jumping/sliding down all the different areas. I believe we had 3 jumps and 7 or 8 slides but honestly just swimming and playing on the way was almost as much fun. Both the Park guides and the excursion company guide were great and referred to our group as their "sexy family". Everything felt so personal because with such a small group we had our Tour guide, two park guides, and a photographer. We were not only able to get to know the couple we were traveling with but get to know the guides who were locals from the area. We may have even picked up a little Spanish ;P We were also constantly bombarded with bottles of water, our guide wanted to make sure we were well taken care of and there was never a lack of helping hands to guide you over rocks or through steeper areas. Both my friends were also elated with our experience, our tagline for the trip became "we jumped off waterfalls, everything else is easy". Definitely recommend!

This excursion is for anyone not afraid of adventure and a thrill. You will do a somewhat hard hike but it will be so worth it when you start jumping off cliffs and sliding down waterfalls. The guides are amazing and will help you walk through the rocky parts and will give you tips on how to make sure you don’t get hurt. This is probably the coolest excursion I have ever done!

I can’t even explain how amazing this excursion was! We couldn’t believe we were actually doing something so breathtaking. We paid for the paparazzi to follow us and take pictures, so worth the money! I would definitely recommend wearing good shoes during this one. Also when you leave to start the hike whatever you are wearing is what you will get wet in. So make sure you are prepared for that. Also would recommend bringing a pair of flip flops for the way back! The guides that went with us were top notch! They made sure we were sure and having a blast. Recommend this a million times over.

We booked this excursion to early and our ticket's meeting time had changed but we were never updated. So we ended up showing up to the bus an hour late but they had waited for us and had made sure we got to base camp before they all left. For being "late" we had our own transportation with AC and he made sure we got on the correct tour. He even took us back even though we could have rode with the rest of our group. The excursion itself was great and I would highly recommend but make sure you are able to move on very rocky terrain and hike up for 30 mins. Be careful, one girl did hit a rock off the 25' jump (it was her fault however). The meeting location was hard to find because it was a 15 min walk from the ship completely outside the cruise terminal ( you will know when you have made It outside)

This was an absolute amazing experience ! Booking through these guys is not only cheaper but way more personalized and fun ! We had Jose and Tito , we had our own camera and video boys who captures amazing pictures and videos of all 24 of us in our party ! They made sure we had water on our hike up and overall made it a great day for us ! Now you do have to walk a little bit when you get off the ship . We did not have an air conditioned bus - we had a bus with no windows - all open ! It was WAY better than any air conditioned bus . We got to enjoy the island much more ! I cannot sday enough great things about this excursion . I can only say that if you are thinking about booking it - DO it ! You will not be disappointed . There were 24 of us and we ALL had a phenomenal day !

I would have to say that the excursion with our tour guide Jesus was the highlight of entire trip! They walked us through everything step by step and after the long hike, the trip was well worth it going down. Lots of laughs and an amazing time with the entire group. Will definitely book through here again. Saves LOTS of money and a better experience getting to meet the locals and not go through Carnival workers. Definitely worth every penny. I paid an extra $50 for someone to tag along and take videos and pictures of my family and got a USB port to take with me. Would have never captured pics like he did.

I will definitely be doing this excursion again! Buying through (Shore Excursioneer) is waaaayyy better than buying from Carnival. Carnival was charging like $50 more for the same thing! PLUS your group is smaller and you really build a relationship with your guides! I don't know how to swim and they made sure i was okay! HIGHLY recommend!

Giovanni and Adolfo were our guides and if we do a return cruise, we will request them to be our guides again! The climb up the mountain is not for the weak, but their jovial personalities definitely kept us entertained on the way up. There were 9 of us in our group and they kept us moving, but also made sure we had enough time at each slide or jump to enjoy the experience and not feel rushed. It became a competition between Adolfo and my husband to see who could be the most outrageous and have the most fun - each coming away with nicknames, sexy Papi and Spiderman, LOL. I would highly recommend this excursion and if you can request Adolfo and Giovanni, DO IT!!! And make sure you bring your go pro to capture every moment!

I just recently went with my husband and friends. The hike to the falls was a little tiring but it was fun. Our guides were funny and entertaining and allowed for breaks at the perfect time (when we were out of breath lol). The water falls and scenery was very pretty and the natural rock slides were great and a wonderful experience. the water looks slightly green its not because its dirty there are these rocks along the bottom and sides that have a light green tone that make the water that color. The transportation from the pier to the excursion was in very clean and updated buses. They don't give snacks just a bottle of water but you cant eat along the path nor take food with you in the water. I saw children with our group who did very well, so if you have an adventurous energetic child they too will enjoy it. I recommend!

This was purchased for us as a gift on our wedding cruise. We got married on a Carnival ship in July 2017. This excursion came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint. You have a rather long walk to the road from the port to meet your bus but it saved you $50 as opposed to paying through Carnival. Our tour guides (Jesus and Chi Chi) were by far the best, super fun and entertaining. The hike up the mountain is quite long and I wouldn't recommend for anyone with problem areas line knees or back. There is a 27foot waterfall jump that is terrifying but amazing. You do have stair options if you opt out. So much fun. A most do. Wear water shoes!! They provide jacket and helmet. They do have a photographer/videographer and it's only $45 for all copies on a USB. Well worth it.

Me, my husband and 10year old daughter did the waterfalls tour this past Monday. Our guide was fun. We picked up 2 more guides before we started the hike to the falls, they climbed trees to offer us fresh native fruit (3 different kinds). Right before we got to the 1st jump the sole of one of my watershoes fell off,one of the guides, Michael, took his shoes off and offered them to me, then carried my broken ones the rest of the way. All of the guides where entertaining but Michael went above and beyond. Thanks for a great experience, we will be back!

This was an amazing adventure. I do want say that you need to be in good health because you walk up a mountain in the jungle to get to the falls. My wife and I are in our lower 60's and it was quite a hike but we made it. Then the falls and slides were Awesome. This is not for the faint of heart.

This excursion was a blast!! There were two couples total on the excursion, so small and personal. The only reason I dropped one star was because we had to walk so darn far to get outside the cruise terminal to where we could be picked up, and then we had to wait quite awhile until the driver showed up. After we got going though, it was great. We did 12 waterfalls, which was pretty strenuous for my 62 year old body, but I made it just fine. The walk up is the hardest, but you soon forget that when you reach the waterfalls and begin the descent down - so much fun! Our guide pointed out vegetation along the way and was very, very helpful in navigating the tough spots. He didn't speak good English, but we managed to communicate. We jumped off a couple of cliffs into the beautiful clear blue water below, and slid down rock slides, and just swam in pools of the clearest water you've ever seen. Beautiful!!! After the excursion the driver took us on a drive through the countryside, which was interesting, and to a place where they made cigars. Then he took us back to the cruise terminal, only this time because he was with us and we had our cruise passes, they let him drive up closer to the ship - whew!! All in all - totally fun!!

Our favorite excursion of our whole trip! So much fun! The boys want to go back just to do this again!!thanks for the memories!! Just a warning I'd recommend keens that cover your toes. I wore chacos but won't do that again. Also when you arrive at the port you have to walk all the way out of the gates to the road to meet your guide. It's ok. You're safe. And they do take you into a small community on your way back and do a cigar demonstration.

We exited the cruise terminal to find our guide who greeted us with a big smile, while on the ride to the waterfalls he explained everything we needed to know. Once in the park, there are guides helping you climb, I recommend you to do the 27 waterfalls because they are all different but it depends on how you feel. The best was part was jumping from the rocks!! After all this activity you get hungry, there is a restaurant where you can buy snacks. If your ship is arriving to Puerto Plata you should definitely book this tour!!!!
