El Limon, Dominican Republic

3.1
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.

  • Cruelty to animals live. If you want to support this cruelty, please feel free to buy tickets. The worst experience in my life that you never forget. We refused to those emaciated losers in the terribly impoverished condition get, unfortunately the vast majority of tourists this absolutely mind, not mercy. Mules (really not a horse), which seemed to decompose even under the child all day carry excessive tourists to the falls, which is a million around the world and back again in a few inches of mud and stones that are tripping over themselves and break their legs. Across the road you will not find even one excrement and really not that someone collected, simply because they don't get to eat (see photos). The water cannot be speech. Stop the suffering!

  • Having no excursions with my hotel of Mr.., I end up finding a tour desk 150 dollars a day out of punta cana ave a guy on the beach (recommended by a bartender of the "MATHRU seafood & bar") at the beginning a few bit wary, I was astonished of the Prestation.il come first we are looking to the hotel by bus in the morning, we moved to take the boat to the Bay of samana, then eat, drink and swims on a Paradise Beach. Then took over the boat and coming horse mounted to the waterfall. People accompanying the horses will gallop, trot at your speed, or quiet, they seek even to do vs to stay in a group if vs are family or plusieurs.20 minutes to mount and 10-15 for get a waterfall (the hard part is to go up!). After the snack, and in the boat home, rum at will. Personal was really nice, if vs not know how vs go go to the mathru and ask for excursions, they vs will direct to the amigo to the straw hat ;-)
