Saltos de JimenoaSalto de BaiguateSalto de Rio GrandeSaltos de La Jalda

The Salto Jimenoa Uno (about 60 metres) and Salto Jimenoa Dos (about 40 metres) just in the south-east of the town Jarabacoa. It is said, that the upper of the two falls, the Salto Jimenoa Uno was the location for several scenes of the 1993 Jurassic Park were shot.

The National Monument Jimenoa Falls was created to conserve the grandiose scenery of the plunging river of the same Taino-language name, with other minor falls nearby that are located in the mid basin. It is also to conserve the mixed and broadleaved forests (broadleaved and coniferous) surrounding them, plus the neighboring areas of the mid basin – the upper Camu River, where excellent examples of the damp broadleaved forest remain.
