Highlights
    What to Expect
    Canyoning differs from cascading in that it involves rappelling and is therefore slightly more technical and a little slower paced. You will start the day meeting your guide at the pickup location in Cabarete and start out on a beautifully scenic 45-minute drive to the base camp.

    At the base camp you will meet the other guides who will get you geared up in a wet suit, harness, helmet and life preserver. A quick safety briefing is followed by a 10-minutes drive to the canyon entrance. The trip starts with a couple of easy jumps before you come upon the highlight of the day, the Magic Mushroom itself. Two intense rappels are followed by some great jumps that can be walked around if you are just in it for the rappels. For adrenaline junkies the second rappel can be jumped at 45 feet (15 meters)!

    After a couple of hours in the river and a 25-minute hike out to the transport you will be ready to head for lunch and the drive back to Caberete, arriving at around 2:30pm in the afternoon.

    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

    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

    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

    The week before our trip we added activities to our schedule and we planned to go on a simple terrain hike. When I saw the adventure of Magic Mushroom I assumed it was just that, a hike. My boyfriend and I were picked up and so confused when our guide Carlos told us we would

    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,

    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
