Canyoning to make us kids again!
Jul 2021
MUST DO- especially if Amanera resort visitor. Iguana mama tours is an amazing way to experience the waterfall/mountain experience of the Dominican Republic. Our guides, Robert and Angel, could not have been more professional, attentive, and enthusiastic.

The journey begins with a 1.5 hr drive from Amanera with a stop to pick up gear (helmet, wet suit, etc.). Once at the canyon, a short hike to the top of a mountain trail. Don't want to spoil the surprise for people, but it's an exhilarating way to experience the crystal clear blue waterfalls, rivers, and canyons of this beautiful area. Magic mushroom itself is one of the most breath-taking sites I've ever seen. If you are looking for something to break up the monotony of the beach/ocean scene (know it sounds crazy, but it can get a little boring), then do this adventure. You won't regret it.

Canyon Supremacy - BEST Excursion EVER
Dec 2019 • Family
My husband, teenage son and I did this tour on Dec 27, 2019, which combined the Magic Mushroom, Big Bastard and 27 Waterfalls with Robert as our tour guide. It was the most incredible, awesome and amazing adventurous tour we had ever done! The thrills we got from repelling down waterfalls, doing over 25 jumps, highest being 90 feet, will forever be talked about and memories treasured!
Our experience was so exceptional because our guide Robert was professional, skilled, highly organized AND has a caring and charming personality! Along with his 2 team members, they ensured we had a ton of fun but did it safely!

Robert is by far the best tour guide we had ever had. And I highly recommend this tour!

We got picked up by Maximo who’s was a fantastic safe driver and by Robert who was an excellent tour guide. We got around safely and had an amazing day!! Highly recommend !!

A unique experience
Aug 2019
My wife and I did the Magic Mushroom Tour with Robert and it was an incredible experience. Because we visited during the off-season we were the only ones to book this tour on this day so we, essentially, had a private tour. The hike down into the river was pretty simple and we were soon jumping from waterfalls and rappelling down sheer rock faces. Our guides Robert and Muchaca (I think I butchered his name, I apologize), were very good at communicating the instructions for the tour and making us feel comfortable. The hike back out of the Canyon is pretty rough and it, quite frankly, kicked my butt, but it was well worth it. If I had the opportunity to do this tour again, I definitely would.

Hola jramsay1! Thanks so much for going canyoning with us and the great review! I'm happy to share your comments with Robert and Machelo (that is his nickname, his real name is Alberto :) The canyoning is physically tiring so, the hike out can be tough. Well done! Hopefully, we'll have the pleasure of taking you on this or another adventure again in the future! Cheers! Lidia / Iguana Mama

Great canyoning tour with great team in wonderful location
We did the tour with our 15 yrs old twins. We all enjoyed the experience, especially the jumps into the beautiful natural canyon. The guides were very professional and payed high attention to our safety - and they were entertaining. Overall a highly recommended tour in case your are into sports, climbing and outdoor activities - and are OK with some adrenaline. Maybe not for everyone though. Big thx to Robert for guiding us! 👍😎

Amazing From Start to Finish!
Feb 2019 • Friends
From the moment our guide Carlos and driver Maximo picked us up in the comfy van, the day was spectacular. The ride to the "base" camp was up the mountains past gorgeous villages and banana plantations, with Carlos filling us in on the history and culture of the area. This, alone, was wonderful! At the base camp, we met Alberto and Diomedez, the other two local guides. Did I mention that the whole group consisted of just myself and my traveling companion Susan -- both in our 60's? They did the whole adventure just for us! Carlos joked that others from Iguana Mama who saw our ages on the registration forms were worried about our participation on this particular adventure, but he had been with us on the 12 WATERFALLS (another GREAT adventure!) and assured everyone we could do it. His confidence was terrific for me, because even though I hike and swim well, I had never canyoned before and was a wee bit nervous. Once in our wetsuits, harnesses and helmets, we drove another 10 min to start the adventure. We hiked up a local road with interesting views, then headed into a rocky steep path down to the water. For the next hour or so, we cliff jumped into the river, bouldered, wiggled through narrow openings, slid, laughed, zip-lined, river-walked and had a blast. The highlight was rappelling from the "magic mushroom" - an amazing waterfalls flowing over a gigantic mushroom-shaped cliff. Alberto and Diomedez were not only expert in deftly setting up the ropes and belaying, but also helped me across some very slippery passageways. Carlos was a superb guide, constantly informing us about our journey, the area and making sure we were having fun and feeling safe. He also took dozens and dozens of photos and some videos which we were thrilled to purchase for the $35. They will make me smile for many years to come! The climb out of the canyon was fairly high and vertical, but again Alberto and Diomedez carefully led the way. By the time we were back at the top, Susan and I were beyond thrilled with the experience. As if it couldn't get any better, the included lunch turned out to be a fabulous home-cooked meal prepared and served by Diomedez' wife. I highly recommend this outing, even if you're a "señora vieja" like us. If you have a spirit for adventure, you can do it! Just make sure you have non-slip watershoes, are in decent shape and can swim.

Hola m b! Thanks so very much for this beautifully written, detailed review and recommendation. You've described the excursion so eloquently! While we were a little worried when you booked, Carlos assured us that on the Damajagua hike and jumps, you were more agile than most of the younger people on tour so, trusting his judgement, we said "good for them"! I couldn't be more pleased that you enjoyed every moment! Besides safety as our primary concern, our guests also having a great time is another! I will share your kind comments and compliments with Carlos, Alberto (Machelo) and Diomedez. Such positive feedback is always the best reward! Thanks so much again and we hope to take you on another adventure in the future! Cheers! Lidia / Iguana Mama

Highlight of our vacation!
Nov 2018 • Couples
Our tour guides Bright and Carlos were top notch! They were friendly, informative and encouraging as we hiked, jumped and rappelled. They were right on time to pick us up in a nice clean van. They explained sites we saw as we drove to the drop off point for Magic Mushroom Canyon Hike. They provided all the nice clean equipment we needed. You need to wear good walking shoes. Sandals, even hiking ones, not recommended as you will be hiking and climbing over rocks and your toes need to be protected. The canyon is beautiful and it is a good combo of hiking, floating the river and jumping into the river from a variety of heights. The 2 falls we rappelled were very doable even for a novice and they did a good job explaining and encouraging.We were there at the end of November and even though it was cloudy the wet suits kept us comfortable in and out of the water. The hike out of the canyon was tiring for someone who doesn't hike much, but they were more than willing for us to stop and rest as needed. The lunch at the end was delicious. The pictures and videos they did were well worth the money. We would definitely do this again and highly recommend their services.
