Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • 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.
  • An amazing place to visit. Be sure to take extra $ to tip your guides because they do not get paid by the company. They work for tips only and it's one heck of a journey for them on foot while you ride a horse
  • Great walk/ hike. Avoid using the horse and do it on your own whenever possible. You'll need suitable foot gear. Easy hike from the first turn coming from the main road in El Limon. Lovely waterfall. A good 1/2 day spent in there.
  • Swimming here was one of the highlights of our vacation in DR. This fall is really beautiful. Worth it.
  • Easy hike through the beautiful Dominican landscape! Don't forget your swimsuit, it's quite nice with a swim close to the waterfall after the hike! 10 min before you reach the waterfall there is a little cafe where you can get drinks and snacks :) Enjoy!
