Travelers who want to escape the crush of Puerto Plata resorts and enjoy close encounters with nature will love exploring Jimenoa Falls, a magical destination that is accessible via 4x4 or horseback near the town of Jarabacoa. The thundering waters tumble some 35 meters over rocky cliffs that are located in a picturesque tropical rain forest and offer visitors truly stunning views.
Travelers can navigate the rugged trails surrounding this top natural attraction, and shuffle across hanging bridges that stretch over the picturesque Jimenoa River. The waterfall cascades into a natural swimming pool where tired hikers can find the ultimate refreshment after a long walk in the woods.
Visitors can combine a tour of historic Santiago, including architectural landmarks, city streets, a ceramic and cigar factory, with a stop at Jimenoa Falls, for the perfect way to see the best of Dominican Republic from Punta Cana.
The falls are easily accessible from Puerto Plata by following clearly marked signs. Visitors can hire a taxi, or drive their own cars, since parking is located nearby.
The park is open from dawn until dusk Monday through Sunday.
