Imbert, Dominican Republic: 27 waterfalls where it's okay to jump

27 Charcos

If one waterfall is awesome, then what do you call a couple dozen of them? In a row?

In Puerto Plata, the Damajagua river flows down to the ocean through a network of 27 waterfalls no more than about 30 feet high.

Stop by a hut in a sugarcane field for gear (lifejacket, helmet) and a human guide (or two), and hike up to where the first of the falls begins, passing plenty of gorgeous scenery en route.

And begin your day of gliding down limestone slides, cannonballing into turquoise water, bobbing in cool whirlpools, and floating along until the sound of rushing water tips you off to the next waterfall.

Note: It's worth investing in some sort of waterproof camera before hitting the 27 Charcos. Just saying.
