Indeed, Mother Nature has produced 27 beautiful pools, carved by the limestone. Be ready to have fun!!!
Although the 27 waterfalls have existed for millennia they were only recently discovered by the outside world. Therefore, the first tourists began arriving at the Falls in 1994, and little by little, word got out about this amazing natural treasure and spawned a guiding industry for the local young men. Nevertheless, ten years later, nearly 50,000 tourists every year come to Rio Damajagua to enjoy what Dominicans have known about for centuries.
Thus, the number of tourists coming to 27 Charcos has grown dramatically. In 1998, the local guides officially formalized their association in to the AGRD, the Association of Guides of Rio Damajagua. Our team has extensive experience as water guides and strives to ensure that your satisfaction is our number one priority.

About the Zipline:
A Zip Line consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on a slope. Its design enable cargo or a person propelled by gravity. Therefore it travels from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding on to or attached to the moving pulley. Described as a Tyrolean traverse that engages gravity to assist its speed of movement. Its use is not only to adventure sport, recreation, or tourism, but current usage tends to favour these meanings.
However, ropeways or aerial cables are the method of transport in some mountainous countries for more than 2,000 years. Starting in China, India and Japan as early as 250 BC, remaining in use in some remote areas in China. As late as 2015 before bridges replaced them. Not all of these structures need the help of gravity, so not all fitted the definition of the zip-line.
Various technological advances in Europe in the Middle Ages improved the ropeways, some of which were still assisted by gravity. The first recorded use of the zip-line as a form of entertainment was in 1739, when Robert Cadman, a steeplejack and ropeslider, descended from Shrewsbury’s St Mary’s Church.
Some sources attribute the development of zip-lines as a vacation activity to the Tyrolean traverses developed for mountaineering purposes. In the Australian outback, zip-lines were sometimes used for delivering necessities to people working. They may used it to be in conflicts by Australian troops to deliver food, mail and even ammunition to forward positions.
