El Limon, Dominican Republic

3.6
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. To visit El Limon on your trip to Las Terrenas, use our Las Terrenas trip planner .

  • You wouldn't believe what horses can actually in the harshest of conditions. Taluttaja knew what he was doing and the return journey's turned out fine with a little more relaxed!

  • Somethink different than the endless beautiful beaches. A very nice place. The horse back riding was not fut though because some mules were old and tired, and we were feeling guilty to ride them throu the rough and muddy terrain.
  • the road is bravo rather long full of mud, the poor horse makes it nearly impossible to overcome obstacles, but at the end it is worthwhile to see the beautiful waterfall
