Hola amy h! Thanks for coming to the Monkey Jungle Zip Line with us and the great review! I'm so glad you mentioned that the majority of the proceeds go toward supporting the dental and medical clinics that provide aid and treatment to the poorest local residents and also support all the rescue animals housed there!

Let me begin with Lydia (Iguana Mama), who was most accommodating when we walked into her office in Cabarete. She set us up with a private tour with Kathy for the next day which was a wonderful experience. We did the VooDoo beach BBQ glass bottom boat tour. The VooDoo museum is once in a life time "must see". We... More

We were in port at Amber Cove on 2/6/17. We walked out of the cruise terminal and followed the map provided by Iguana Mama and found our tour guides waiting for us. Our bus of 18 arrived and were then split up into groups based on the number of waterfalls we were doing. You are fitted with a helmet and... More

We did this excursion whilst in port at Amber Cove for the day on a cruise ship. This was a really enjoyable day. The canyon and waterfalls are so beautiful – pure and clean, and so fresh and scenic. Our guide Brightling was very good and we always felt like we were in safe hands. The only MAJOR hiccup that... More

We took a Carnival Cruise to the Eastern Carribean. This was truly the best part of our trip. On the Eat Drink and Be Merry Tour we saw so many interesting parts of the city.

Cathy from Canada and Ismael are outstanding. Their knowledge of Puerto Plata and the Dominican Republic is remarkable. They are patient, kind and concerned about the happiness of their guests. I highly recommend using IGUANA MAMA: Make sure to request CATHY FROM CANADA and ISMAEL as your guides.

Absolutely had the best time! These group of guys made our adventure amazing! The 12 of the 27 falls at Damajagua we did were exciting and adventurous! This is not for the faint of heart or those not physically capable of climbing up the mountain or those who have a fear of heights!
