Enjoy the thrill of rappelling? Then Six Falls is the excursion for you. Six Falls combines the thrill of cascading Ciguapa Falls with six entry rappels. If you have never rappelled, but have always been curious this is the perfect introduction.
Most of the year the rappels are dry, except in the wetter months. Once you reach the canyon’s main river you will find twelve jumps at six different waterfalls.
You adventure begins when you are picked up at your accommodation by one of your guides and transported to our base camp. At the base camp, you will be suited with a wetsuit, harness, helmet, and rappelling gear. After a safety briefing, you will be transported to the entrance of a rain forest. After a short hike, you reach the first of 6 rappels.
After the sixth rappel, you will enter Ciguapa Falls and continue the adventure for another two hours of swimming, jumping, and scrambling through areas that few rarely ventured in the Dominican Republic. At the end of your time in the canyon, you have a 45-minute hike back to your transportation for a deliciously prepared Dominican style lunch.
Why not save your energy for a good cause? Donkeys may be hired to ride out of the canyon for an additional $10USD. All proceeds go directly to the donkey’s owner and local farmers.
Six Falls has an ACA Rating of (3C III PG ) and a FFME Rating of (3C III ✯✯)
