El Salto del Limon, Samana Province
(4.3/5 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.

  • Disappointing excursion and tourist. But the worst is the treatment of the poor animals. No respect, horses in a pitiful and abused State. I write this review because I feel terribly to have participated in this type of activity. This is such sad :-(

  • In the course of our day trip to Samana we made a trip to the waterfall "del Limon". Man rides here in an endless Karawanne of tourists in the vicinity of the falls and then runs the last piece (approx. 10-15min, many levels). The horses are directed to hand horse guides that accompany a then down to the waterfall and back again. At the waterfall itself about crowds on then tightly close and hardly a reasonable photo can be done without having someone in front of the lens runs continuously at a (unintentional, but it is just so crowded...). On the way back it is besieged by the horse guides them at least $20 tip to give, and at the latest there is then also end with the kindness of strangers. The waterfall itself was not the "trappings" really beautiful, but unfortunately at all! The time it takes to get to the waterfall and the actual time that you can then spend in proportion to each other. We would not make this tour and also not recommend.

  • I had opportunity to visit this natural paradise, I liked it so much, since you can not only appreciate the nature at its best, but you have possibility to swim in its cool, but delicious waters, it is a natural waterfall, which is located in the jungle, you arrive to it through horse (which you can rent since you hire the tour either if you are part hire him there), after a ride of approx. 10 min. You get to stairs formed on the same surface (eye care if you can't do physical effort since it is the only way to go), after going down several steps, you can see the waterfall, there are usually many people, so you will have to overcome some obstacles to be able to put in that eye of water (again cold but very rewarding from the heat) already then, to get out of there, you have to go back on the same horse I take you, don't worry, the caregivers are waiting for you to bring you healthy and except at the start of the tour and you can already splitting. The only things that I liked were: 1) you say that you use rubber boots so don't dirty your tennis, but the problem is that they are the same boots up to the same operators of horses (no socks), or all the other tourists have been used so if you're not wearing spray antifungal mmm... it will be your risk , I opt for using my tennis and at the end of the day, normal without getting dirty. 2) operators of the horses are telling you all the way who do not receive a salary that only live on the tips, but they get angry if you don't give them more than $10 and 3) to be able to get into the water, you have to let your solo stuff, if you're not a friend in the tour that their things to take care of you can change owner as step two Canadians who were there, as well as care. Jurisdiction of that, is a very pleasant experience, do not forget to bring an Apple to your horse, so be well carry with you.

  • 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.
