White water flows from the mountains through canyons and jungle and out to sea. The hottest white water rafting location is on the Yaque del Norte in the central mountain area. This is the largest river in the DR and has exhilarating class III to V rapids (using the universal scale of I to VI) including a 12-foot drop named "Mike Tyson." For a whitewater experience, Rancho Baiguate and Rancho Jarabacoa, as well as several other operators, offer one-day tours out of Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata and Cabarete and all include instruction and equipment. There are some tours that have options for multiple days and include sleeping along the river. Most tours will only allow adults and children over 12 years of age who are in good health.
