We had to go out of the port & down the road maybe a block to meet them & get signed up. Had reviewed the tour before our cruise and hubby and 19yo son and I enjoyed... More

We were initially booked for the 27 waterfalls tour, but it was cancelled due to the weather and instead we were offered to do another tour at the same price that would have been more expensive. The staff was really nice and friendly and you felt very safe in their hands. Although the trip was quite tough due to the... More

Hola Mikael! Thanks so much for understanding that we could not take you on the 27 Falls because the park closed due to high water river conditions and, for allowing us to take you on another waterfall experience instead! We really appreciate this review and your recommendation! Cheers and we hope to take you on another adventure if you return... More

An Adventure company that I really can recommend. Me and my family (53, 50, 22 and 17 years old) went on the mushroom tour which was great. Pushed our boarders but we all the time felt safe with the guides. You should not buy tours on the beach but instead use Iguana Mama to get professional guides and safety.

The resort I stayed at recommend Iguana Mama for a canyoning adventure. I was picked up and driven 90 minutes to the start of the adventure and was given a wetsuit and harness. We then walked into a beautiful canyon to begin the tour. Overall the trip was a success. Big jumps (for me) and some beautiful scenery. I think... More

Hola jefland! Thank you for joining us and for taking the time to post your thoughts! Yes, your specific resort always books private excursions for their guests and this time, you were the sole participant at their request.

Canyoning for a day at the magic mushroom was really worth it. A gay came to pick us up on time at our hotel, then we went for a beautiful ride in the mountain to reach the sport where we got our equipment. The tour was excellent: awesome view from the bottom, amazing rocks... water was clear, sunny day, it... More

My family has done numerous adventure trips with some great and some not so great outfitters in various countries. Iguana Mama is an excellent organization to work with in the Dominican Republic .... guides were knowledgeable and friendly, equipment provided suited for the trip, plenty of adventure, and family safety focus evident.

Great tour guides highly recommend this group, big effort to make it safe and fun. 27 waterfall tour is great for those in relatively good shape that want to go a bit outside the comfort zone.

We both enjoyed the day tour of Puerto Plata. Highly recommended. We also took the 12 Waterfalls tour. (readers note: This is being written by a 64 year old, reasonably fit guy who walks/exercises daily). I found the 12 Waterfall tour as much challenging as it was enjoyable. The walk to the starting point was taxing, but manageable. Walking along... More

Just got back from a cruise with a stop in DR. Used Iguana Mama Tours and it was an amazing day. We escaped the crowed ship bus tours, it was only 10 of us on the mini van.
