El Salto de Baiguate

El Salto de Baiguate is the perfect waterfall for families. It is close to many attractions and is quite easy to get to, as well as offering a wide range of activities that can keep different ages entertained.

While not a uniquely large water fall at a couple dozen feet high, El Salto de Baiguate has a very large pool that is great for swimming and wading. In addition, the softer, plant-less rocks surrounding the falls make it great for rock climbing and jumping into the pool from. Additionally, the occasional large boulder is a perfect place to lay out in the sun, as the lack of dense forest means that a lot of sun falls onto this little waterfall paradise.


El Salto de Baiguate is located in the Western side of the Dominican Republic, in the Dominican Republic; it's 2.4 miles to the southeast of Jarabacoa.

This is a very easy waterfall to get to. While in Jarabacao taking Avenue Pedregal out of town, once you past the cemetery, the third right is Calle Baiguate and will take you to a parking lot at the waterfall.
