El Limon, Dominican Republic

(3.2/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Recommended visit 100% but with good weather and no rain and above all a horse since the land is too uneven to walk. Spectacular wildlife.

  • This spectacular waterfall is a “must” destination if you are in this area. I discovered it when I did a survey of geocaches in Samana. Since I was within 15 kilometres by crow, it was on my list of p...  more »
