Overview
When your cruise ship pulls into port at Puerto Plata's Amber Cove, discover one of the Dominican Republic’s most exhilarating shore excursions. Hike, slide, swim, and jump your way down the 27 Waterfalls (27 Charcos) of Rio Damajagua. It’s ideal for adventure seekers and one of the most popular natural attractions on the north coast. A buffet lunch, rum drinks, and port pickup are all provided.

    27 Charcos
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    After meeting your guides outside the Amber Cove Cruise Terminal you will board an air-conditioned vehicle for the 25 minute ride to the falls. During the ride you will receive a safety briefing and some local information of interest. Water, sodas, snacks and iced towels will be on board. On arrival at the 27 Falls of Damajagua Park you will leave the transport where you can leave a bag with your valuables, towel, dry clothes and flip flops for after the tour. Your guide will introduce you to the local waterfall guides who will be looking after you and you’ll be issued with a life jacket, helmet and a bottle of water for the hike up. If you want to take photos or video on the tour please only bring waterproof cameras. From this point on everything will get wet! A moderate 40 minute uphill hike through a beautiful jungle landscape gets you to the 12th waterfall or, if you are in excellent physical shape, choose to hike all the way to the top of the 27 Waterfalls (approximately 70 minutes) and experience it all. Either way, it's where your real fun begins as we head back down-river and you jump, slide and swim your way through a series of spectacular waterfalls, canyons and azure pools, emerging with a silly grin on your face and incredible memories to cherish! The tour includes jumps of up to 25 feet (8 meters), but don't worry, the big ones have another way down if you don't want to jump. Once back down at the first fall and after you have taken your time relaxing in the amazing azure waters there will be a 15-minute hike back to the visitor center for lunch and a well earned rum and coke! After changing into your dry clothes enjoy a delicious and varied Dominican buffet lunch which includes barbecued chicken and pork, stews, rice, pasta and salads. Sodas and local rum are included (beer available but not included). After the meal you will say goodbye to the local guides and board the transport for the 25-minute transfer back to Amber Cove. We always aim to get you back at least one hour before the departure of your ship. Please note: This tour is for cruise ship passengers only.

Best thing to do when docked at Amber Cove, off cruise ship. We booked this excursion directly with Iguana Mama before our cruise and it did not disappoint. After walking out to the highway from Amber Cove we met up with our guides who were waiting for us. They welcomed us

This was truly the highlight of our Cruise. Iguana Mama's stuff are very professional and friendly. Its worth every penny especially when you consider how much less expensive it is the ordering the same trip on the ship.

We did this excursion while on the carnival magic. We have a great time dispite not being able to do all 27 falls and they did reimburse us the difference. The tour guides were great and our paparazzi took great pics for us as well.
