Iguana Mama tours were excellent. We did the full 27 waterfalls. It was better than advertised. The hike up was a little strenuous, but is doable for most anyone. I do recommend that you wear the old running shoes they recommend. I wore water shoes with a thin sole and paid the price with bruised feet from walking through the river on uneven and sometimes sharp rocks.

We only did the 12 waterfall tour but the biggest thing that people need to know is the physical exertion needed for this trip. Dont attempt this if you are not in fairly decent shape. It is a challenging climb to get to the starting point and challenging hiking out after the waterfall tour is done. The other thing I did wrong is to have REALLY GOOD water shoes with very sturdy supportive soles or better yet running shoes that you are ok with getting wet. You have to walk over a lot of unsteady rocks through multiple river crossings etc. My feet were killing me after I finally got back. Having said that the tour guides are top notch, look after your safety, and adjust the pace if you are getting worn out. There is 2 for each group one ahead and one behind and they actually carried both mine and my brothers vest and helmet while we were hiking up to the start. I wish I had brought more money to tip them, they were easily worth 20.00 US each. You dont have to be a strong swimmer because you are wearing life jackets and a helmet and there is someone there when you jump etc and a lot of the walking from fall to fall is in water you can stand up in but again be warned that this is a physically enduring tour.
I probably wouldnt attempt another one now that I know what is involved but having said that I am glad I did do it because jumping from a 25 or 30foot cliff into a pool of water is pretty exilerating.

My husband and I took our 15-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son on this excursion and we highly recommend it. The day was very well organized, the staff was both friendly and competent and the lunch at the end of the adventure was delicious. It was the highlight of our week! Bringing an extra set of clothes to change into after all of the swimming would make lunchtime, as well as the bus ride more comfortable.

Amazing! A MUST if you visit the Dominican Republic! We were supposed to have a small group of 6 in our tour but unfortunately, as soon as the hike started, a person in our group got sick so our tour guide ended up going with her and her husband and personally taking them back to their hotel. Our group got to mix and mingle with other groups so the small experience turned into a big group experience which isn't the worse thing but not ideal and things happen. Other than that this excursion was spectacular! We hiked up the mountain along side the 27 waterfalls and once we got to the top, we got to either jump or rock slide down them! All 27 waterfalls were active, not all were big enough to jump but the ones that were... boy oh boy were they fun! The guides made you feel safe and helped you every step of the way.

I would suggest doing the paparazzi so that you don't have to worry about taking pictures or photos. Its costs 55 and they provide you with a flash drive of all the footage which we tested there to make sure the pics and videos were actually on there. And when we got home to view them... it was well worth it! Those who have a hard time hiking up hills or scared of heights or too chicken to jump a 30 ft waterfall, this excursion is probably not for you.. unless of course you want to just take pictures of all the waterfalls which are beautiful!
Jumping and sliding down the rock slides, you might get scraped or bruised.. but don't worry.. it makes for good stories! After a long day of hiking and jumping, we had a nice Dominican lunch with chicken and rice and beans and drinks... so yummy!

Definitely recommended!!!

This tour was amazing. The guides were very friendly and funny. The waterfalls and hiking trails are beautiful and of all the excursions we took in Puerto Plata this was the best. I would definitely recommend this trip and we would do this one over and over again.

I have traveled to over 20 different countries, done lot of amazing things, and seen a lot of beautiful places. This experience was still one of the coolest experiences of my life. The jungle, river, waterfalls, and limestone rock are breaktakingly beautiful. The guides are incredibly helpful and go the extra mile to make your experience a great one, to keep you informed, to keep you safe, and to help you have the greatest amount of fun. My friend and I did all 27 waterfalls and it was absolutely incredible!! If you are on the fence about this, DO IT!! You 100 will not regret it. Put on bug spray, bring a Go Pro, wear close-toed water shoes, and have the time of your life!!
