Zumbador Waterfall

This recently discovered waterfall is the newest addition to the Dominican Republic's growing list of natural attractions. Travel deep into the forest and swim in this treasure that has been hidden from man for the past centuries.

Just because this waterfall was hidden does not mean it is small; this waterfall is over sixty-five feet tall! Additionally, this waterfall actually has three symmetrical groups that all empty into a large pool, great for swimming in an enclave between a dense canopy of trees.


Zumbador Waterfall is located northwest of Anegadizo, a village in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic; it's to the south-southwest of Samana.

This new waterfall is located near the town of El Valle, in Los Haitises National Park. As such, a direct route is not yet solidified. However, the main road that branches off of JFK and continues west from El Valle will take you into the National Park and across the river. It is suggested that you contact a local or a tour guide to show you the specific location of the waterfall.
