El Salto del Limon, Samana Province
(4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Take a horseback ride to El Salto del Limon, a 52 m (170 ft) waterfall. The scenic uphill ride to the waterfall (accompanied by a local guide), takes you across a rushing river and through lush green jungle. You'll take a break near the falls, as the guides tether the horses, and then you'll descend the trail that leads to the cascade. Admire the cascade as it plunges off a tall cliff and cool off in the natural pool at the waterfall's base before you head back. You can also hike to the falls by yourself. Plan your visit to El Salto del Limon and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Las Terrenas trip builder.

  • It is a pleasant walk, we did walk (not on horseback) with a local guide we hired at the entrance of the road, and enjoyed it very much. The walk took about 30 - 40 minutes and we arrived first to a small waterfall with a lake for a dip, and later to the actual waterfall which is a waterfall of medium size, where you can also swim. I have to pay an entry (I don't remember the price, but it is not expensive), and there are locals selling refreshments and crafts.

  • We have been to this place extremely remarkable wild bellezza........ma everything is passed into the background because of the pitiful and disgraceful that kept the mules that are used to get wing waterfall. Are underweight with obvious injuries. In a Western country would make them quit for mistreatment but we note that the sensitivity is the laws vary depending on the country. Certainly the place deserves but won't go back and we discourage renting that senseless exploitation that is done of the mules who are the only means of transportation to your destination is not worthy of a civilised country and all customers should denounce this situation.

  • a very comprehensive tour with a Trek on horseback that runs through beautiful landscapes and culminates at the waterfall of the lemon. It is advisable to wear repellent of mosquitoes.

  • The waterfall is quite a walk in the middle of a "jungle". So it might be a good idea to take the offer for a ride with a small horse. They are used to it and they are fine...I dont know about the guides who would walk beside you...its a hard job for them. Anyway...the last 500 meter or so have to be walked by foot. Depending on the time of the year you will arrive "wet", because it is very hot for a walk by foot. So at the incredible waterfall you would just take a few minutes in the cold and crystal clear water. Always a bit fog in the air...just an amazing place!
  • Great place for those who like to hike and for those that don't too haha, you can rent a bourse that can take you strait there. It's a great mountain with an amazing view and the Best part is when you get to the waterfall 😍 it's amazing.
  • Great photo and swimming opportunity....and a chance to ride a horse. The pretty much obligatory tips you have you give the guides are the only let down. Take a towel and some underwear (if you go with your swimwear underneath your clothes). There's also a pet parrot at "basecamp" who is incredibly friendly and well happily perch on your shoulder for a pic.
  • Beautiful place and favourite attraction. Just about 30-40 minutes of horse ride from Parada Manzana or some others. Usually crowded.
  • Beautiful. Our kids loved the hoarse ride through the forest and so did we. The waterfall is beautiful and the water feels fantastic after the hike/hoarse ride. I also enjoyed watching some of the local people climb the waterfall and jump.
