White waterfall: waterfall near El Seibo

A waterfall that will not disappoint you

The enclaves of Dominican nature are some of the best in the entire Caribbean. The mixture of jungle, beaches, rivers and water form small areas that are very attractive for tourism. Today we want you to know Cascada Blanca, a water source where a very important river of the Dominican Republic is born, and which is one of the most impressive places to visit near Punta Cana.

What is Cascada Blanca?

Cascada Blanca is a 75-meter high waterfall located in the middle of the Dominican jungle. Its water is known for being the beginning of the Seibo River, which flows south to join the Soco River, which flows near the town of San Pedro de Macoris, in the south of the country.

But a visit to the Blanca waterfall is not just about going in search of a waterfall. This ecotourism excursion goes deep into the Dominican Republic's tropical forest.

The natural space is unbeatable, where tourists can enjoy the unique flora and fauna of this region of the Caribbean. The delight of photographers is usually the tropical birds, which are counted in more than 300 species throughout the Dominican Republic.

As for the vegetation we can see medicinal plants used by the ancient Tainos, ancient trees and many more species typical of the tropical climate of the Dominican Republic.

The large waterfall of Cascada Blanca ends in a natural pool of crystal clear water in which, if the cold weather has not appeared, we can take a relaxing bath surrounded only by vegetation.

Another secret that we have not told you is that, located between mountains, this waterfall is not just one. There are a total of 5, which you will have to discover when you enter the source of the Seibo River.

Recommendations for visiting the White Waterfall

Visiting the Blanca waterfall is an activity that does not involve any risk and is considered quite easy. Even so, there are some recommendations that should be followed for the activity to be complete.

  • First of all, you should do this excursion with comfortable clothes that allow you to walk to the Blanca waterfall. The trail that leads to it crosses the jungle, so you should also wear appropriate footwear.
  • If you want to bathe and swim in the natural pool formed by the Blanca waterfall, it is best to carry a bathing suit or bikini in your backpack. Don't forget a towel to dry yourself as soon as you get out of the cold waters that give life to the Seibo River.
  • It is also important to bring cash, as you can buy handicrafts and souvenirs from your visit to this place in the nearby communities.

This activity is not recommended for children or people with reduced mobility.
