We were set for Damajagua Waterfalls Amber Cove tour, but Lidia contacted us immediately about the closure and cancellation. I was very impressed with how quickly the cancellation took place and she suggested a replacement tour. We ended up with the Eat Drink & Be Merry City All Inclusive City Tour instead, and a discount. It was amazing. The only... More

We came during a rainy time, so excursions available were limited. We couldn't get over the speediness of responses from them, keeping us updated and continuing to try to work around the weather. Much appreciated and we would definitely book with them again.

Waterfalls were beautiful. Guides were fun and entertaining. Safety was a priority. Even though we only got to do 12 waterfalls due to the weather it was a great experience. Be prepared to hike, swim and climb - it's a bit of a workout. Bring your Go Pro for photos if you want to keep more personal memories. The guides... More

I’ve been bringing groups to Cabarete for several years and got plenty of experience with various day-tour operators. I became convinced that Iguana Mama is the best – responsive, caring, and willing to offer personalized attention. My previous tour with them was to the Jarabacoa white water, but this time I wanted something less physically challenging for my small group.... More

We did the 27 waterfalls tour with Iguana Mama during my visit to DR. The area had received an excessive amount of rain before/during our visit so we were unable to do all 27 waterfalls and our trip was cut down to 12. The guides were great at keeping our spirits up throughout the hill climb (it is soooo humid... More

I took the Monkey Jungle tour and Zip Lining trip. My tour guide, Abel, was phenomenal! The bus was on time, Abel spoke excellent English, my handbag was secure while I went zip lining and we were back to the hotel on time, as promised!

My husband and I absolutely loved this excursion. Definitely well worth the cost and the guides were great. I was a little scared to go down the waterfalls at first but they helped me along the way and made it easy for me (for a 50 year old woman!)

We booked this excision because other couples had booked from our cruise ship and felt a little more secure in a group as this is still a fairly new location for Carnival. We were very pleased with the entire experience. We started with a cable car ride to the top of the tallest peak on the island (2500') to see... More
