Tips for visiting Anacaona Falls

Before beginning the adventure of exploring this unique waterfall, it is important to follow some tips to make the most of your visit:

  • Proper footwear. Keep in mind that the trail can be wet and slippery, so it is essential that you wear good hiking shoes that have good grip.
  • Comfortable clothing. The climate in the Dominican Republic is hot, so wear cool, light clothing that allows you freedom of movement. And don't forget your bathing suit to enjoy a delicious dip in the natural pool at the foot of the waterfall.
  • Protect yourself from the sun. Be sure to wear a hat and apply sunscreen on your skin to prevent the intense sun from causing you any damage. Especially during the central hours of the day, the rays can be quite dangerous.
  • Bring insect repellent. The lush native flora is home to countless species, including many insects. Be sure to bring a good repellent to avoid mosquito and other bites.
  • Be sure to hydrate well. During your adventure you will need to drink frequently, and you won't find any watering holes in the area. Bring enough water to maintain good hydration.
  • A small first aid kit. Even if you are very careful, you may still have an incident during the trip. Carrying a small first aid kit with band-aids, some disinfectant and bandages will help you in this situation.
