Salto Jimenoa Uno

This icy waterfall is a unique waterfall in that literally shoots out from the rocks. It is an odd sight to see, and being so close to a larger city, it is an easy side trip that should not be passed up.

The waterfall itself is obviously old, as it has carved a deep path in the cliff it falls from. As such, it oddly appears to be shooting out of the rock itself. Despite appearances, the rushing water is not an underground river. As it plunges down, it collects in a large pool that you can swim in, however the water is frigid.


Salto Jimenoa Uno can be found in the Western side of the Dominican Republic, in the Dominican Republic; it is 3.3 miles to the east-southeast of Jarabacoa.

Heading Southeast out of Jarabacoa, there will be a side road leading to Grand Jimenoa. From this road it is not difficult to find Salto Jimenoa Uno. However, it may be best to ask a local or a tour guide for some help.
