"The word is derived from a Taino word. The origin of the name of the river and its pools are due to Damajagua, trees growing on the bank. This plant keeps the river with plenty of water for a long time and can be found especially from the pool number twelve on, "said Jose Antonio Diaz Lopez, head of the Association of Tourist Guides" Dajaos of Damajagua "(AGRD).

Damajagua River is the result of a confluence of numerous waterfalls and springs that are born in the mountain tops of the municipalities of Altamira and Imbert Puerto Plata. The place is a true example of ecotourism and sustainable tourism, since everything there is to offer visitors is related to the native and the natural. This is one of the best natural attractions of the North Coast, one of the wonders of Puerto Plata.

Risks between beautiful and attractive waterfalls
For the adventurous journey to the waterfall and to be able to reach number twenty-seven, the first thing you need is enthusiasm. Upon arrival at the ranch, buying the package will define our time preference, price, travel guides and protective equipment that will serve to avoid any inconvenience during the tour and, most importantly, comfortable clothes for walking and especially bathing suits.

One of the best details about this natural attraction is the level of organization and excellent facilities for visitors. The location includes a typical ranch with a lobby to welcome visitors, gift shop, cigar shop, crafts and bathrooms; also there's tiki huts where we find a bar, buffet restaurant and the area where life jackets and helmets are required to start the tour.

According to Jose Antonio Diaz, depending on how many pools you want to reach, determines the hours and price of the tour. "From the first waterfall to the seventh the price is about eight dollars for international tourists and RD $200.00 per tourist national or local, a second stage starts from the 12th waterfall with RD$230.00 Dominicans and RD$310.00 pesos foreigners and to reach the 27th pool the rates are $290.00 /  RD$490.00 pesos Dominicans and foreigners. "

"There is no maximum number of people for the tour, what we do is that for every four people have a guide and buy a package that included the guides and safety equipment. There are many people who believe it is dangerous place and is quite the opposite because we guarantee our qualified staff and safety equipment. No risk at this place because there is so much security, "explains the manager.
