El Limon, Dominican Republic

3.2
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 .

    El Limon waterfall is located a few kilometres from the hotel Bahia Principe El Portillo. The transport track. In the small tourist station wears rubber boots and changing from the horses, led by local guides. The last one, will hold a stretch of defeats on foot. Beautiful waterfall! Definitely worth it to take bathing suits because you can swim under the waterfall. Attraction definitely worth! Unfortunately, a good impression spoil the greedy owners of horses (at least some) who after receiving 15 USD (per person) of the so-called 'tipa "showed dissatisfaction.

    We did the walk to El Limón Waterfall in July 2012. This tour usually starts with a very pleasant route, made the horse trails through the nature until you arrive near the waterfall, then descend on foot to reach the base of the waterfall. The waterfall is an impressive height and the water is amazing blue and very refreshing in the face of temperatures of the Dominican Republic. It is possible to dive in the lagoon formed by the cascade and view the stunts of the locals to jump to highest points. It is also funny swim to cross the waterfall and stay in the cave that is behind this. On the way back made another horse, we can visit a small shop where they are made and sold cigars, liquors and other crafts.
