El Limon, Dominican Republic

(3.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Hidden in the depths of the Samana jungle, marvel at El Limon, a 52 m (170 ft) cascading waterfall, a result of the Arroyo Chico river. A rugged trail through tropical steep terrain, your journey starts from the small town located roughly 5.6 km (3.4 mi) from the falls. Once you reach the falls, a picturesque site awaits, with a chance to refresh yourself in the cool water pools. Numerous tours run along this trail both on foot and on horseback. If you choose to travel by foot, wear appropriate footwear as paths are slippery and pass many rivers. Research operators of horse back tours before choosing, due to some reports of poor animal treatment. Plan to see El Limon and other attractions that appeal to you using our Las Terrenas trip builder.

  • There are several travel companies that provide all-day excursions to El Limon. The excursion that I took was a full 14-hour day from pick-up to drop-off back at the hotel. It is about a two hour bus ...  more »
  • Visited waterfall consisting of trips but Samana peninsula. Waterfall is the second part of the tour, after the search and discovery of whales in the ocean. Began a tour with good lunch buffet in the Café on the ranch, then all the issued gear-boots, helmet and were placed on horses. Horses calm, obedient, took us along steep rocky and slippery at the same time, sometimes directly from the Lakes of liquid mud mountain trail to the waterfall. Each horse their conductor Dominican, which accompanies with a tourist horse on foot throughout the journey there and back. The road is very picturesque-on the sides of the jungle with wild coconut palms, cocoa, coffee, mango, grapefruit, pineapple and more unknown than. It's beautiful. After a trip to the waterfall there is a need for a horse to walk on a fairly steep path. And, finally, here it is-the waterfall! Exuberant, noisy, falls with high mountains. -Halo around it, as a mist spray. A sight to remember! In the Lake, formed by a waterfall, the water is pretty cold, but all bathed, very refreshing. Back again on the footpath and on horses. An interesting excursion, visit advise

  • A nice walk to do so only for people with a good physical condition. Of course the walk can be done on horseback, but walk it's quite doable. You should know that even on horseback you need to get off and walk to the end. The fall is beautiful and spectacular. A refreshing swim in the Dominican jungle. It's charming and sports!
