27 Waterfalls
Holiday Travel Guide

27 Charcos which includes a gorge or canyon and a river or creek

Get your heart thumping on an exhilarating adventure tour around an impressive series of waterfalls.

The 27 Charcos, or Damajaqua Cascades as the site is also known, is a series of 27 cascading falls hidden inside the lush jungle. Prepare for thrills as you trek through tropical forest to reach the falls. Then climb from fall to fall, before splashing, jumping and sliding your way down them into crystal clear plunge pools.

Although the 27 waterfalls have been here for many thousands of years, intrepid travelers only began visiting in the late 1990s. Nowadays, visitors come here as part of organized tours, which ensure they have adequate safety equipment and a guide to help them navigate. Be aware that the site can be dangerous, particularly after heavy rain, so consider leaving children or less fit companions behind.

Upon arrival at the visitors’ center, get fitted with helmets and lifejackets. To get to the waterfalls, follow your guide through a lush tropical forest. Listen for tropical birds squawking overhead and see if you can spot their colorful plumage amid the greenery.

When you reach the waterfalls, spend a few moments admiring their beauty and listening to the sound of the gushing water tumbling over the rocks. Once you begin climbing the falls, adrenaline is likely to take over and you’ll be less inclined to appreciate the picturesque setting.

Begin the ascent up the waterfalls, which are set over several levels, enjoying refreshing swims through natural pools as you go. Plunge into deep natural pools and slither down natural stone slides. After the heart-pounding descent, rest and recuperate with lunch or drinks in the visitors’ center.

A guide is required to tour the 27 Charcos. Most package tours will only take visitors up the first seven waterfalls, but it is possible to see all 27 falls. Children younger than 8 are only allowed to climb the first waterfall. The visitors’ center is open daily and there is an entrance fee for the falls. Plan to visit as part of a guided excursion or stop by the visitors’ center in the morning and arrange to hire a guide.
