Naturally enriched Dominican Republic holidays with more waterfalls to explore

Recently discovered waterfalls in a tropical rainforest near the town of El Valle will now form part of the northeastern province of Hato Mayor’s tourist attractions luring millions of nature lovers seeking to enjoy naturally enriching Dominican Republic holidays. The discovery was made in a tropical rainforest on Sunday.

The Environment Ministry announced this month the discovery of (hummingbird) waterfalls located in a tract of nearly 20 hectares with lush trees owned by Martha Frias, in the Los Haitises National Park’s dampening zone, west of the rural municipality.

Miguel Laureano, Environment Ministry provincial manager talked about how the fall’s discovery was an important event which would heplp Hato Mayor’s ecotourism development and would boost Dominican Republic holidays in the region.

“It’s a natural patrimony that will serve to boost the tourism potential of Hato Mayor and the East region, because it’s a natural aggregate which will result in invaluable benefits to the province,", he said.

He went on to add that Zumbador – a paradise hidden by lush vegetation of ferns, royal palms, endemic mahoganies and other varieties- is the province’s highest waterfalls and urged the villagers to preserve it as a legacy of nature which will benefit its inhabitants.

The official also revealed that its three falls form a symmetric, interlaced cascade of water that creates a large pool for swimmers.
