Iguana Mama

Iquana Mama was the first adventure eco-tourism company to be licensed on the island. Located on the North coast of the Dominican Republic, they offer tours ranging from Waterfall Adventures to Horseback Riding to Beach Parties.

Cost and Offerings

Sensitive to the fact that visitors have various time limitations, Iguana Mama has created tours for cruise ship passengers and tours for those staying on the island.

For those who are visiting from a cruise ship, they have organized the Amber Cove Shore Excursions. The 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua is the number one excursion operated by Iguana Mama for over 25 years. They offer 3 different ways to explore these waterfalls which all include swimming or jumping down the waterfalls to return to base. Each features different length hikes. Guests can also enjoy the Eat Drink & Be Merry City tour, which is a 5 hour immersion into the way of life on the island. Guides will expose you to interesting locations, where you can roll your own cigar or hear local folklore.

Other exciting adventures for cruise ship guests include ATV tours, horseback riding through the countryside, and their Sizzling Beach Party. Their Beach Party is 5 hours long, featuring unlimited rum, ATV rides, ocean play, a Dominican Lunch Buffet, and dancing. What better way to celebrate your time on the island than a party on the beach?

For those who are staying at a resort or hotel, they also offer the 27 Waterfalls tour. In addition, guests can rappell into a canyon or down a waterfall, enjoy 1/2 or full day horseback riding tours, go white water rafting, or even embark on a 3 day hike to the Caribbeans highest peak, Pico Duarte.
