Iguana Mama information
This very professional and family-run adventure-sports tour operator on the north coast is in a class of its own. Its specialities are mountain biking (from easy to insanely difficult, US$65) and canyoning. Trips to Damajagua (US$85) go to the 27th waterfall, and Iguana Mama pioneered a canyoning tour to Ciguapa Falls, which only this operator offers. The highest jump, which you can avoid by rapeling, is over 10m. There’s also a variety of hiking trips, including a half-day walk (US$35) into Parque Nacional El Choco, and a full-day trip to Mount Isabel de Torres (US$80), just outside Puerto Plata. Its Pico Duarte trek is handy if you want transportation to and from Cabarete (per person US$450). Iguana Mama can also arrange a number of other half-day and full-day canyoning trips in the area (US$90 to US$125). Action and adventure junkies should ask about the one-week ‘Mama Knows Best’ tour – seven days of nonstop adrenaline.
