A mere 20-minute drive from Jarabacoa town leads to this protected area and waterfall–also known as Salto de Jimenoa Dos. Set around a hydroelectric dam, walking the three suspended footbridges around this powerful waterfall and its pools can take a couple of hours because you will spend quite some time marveling at the mountain scenery and the beauty of the Jimenoa river. You can swim in the lower portions of the river along its shallow banks, but not by the main waterfall area’s pools–the cascade tumbles 40 meters (131 feet) down–because of the depths and currents. A second, smaller waterfall known as Salto de Jimenoa Uno sits off the main highway towards Constanza, tucked inside a ravine, and requires a steep hike downhill to reach it’s magnificent 75 meters (246 feet) cascade and pool for a swim.
