The waterfall is a breath taken! There is no regulation on number of daily visitors so it can be overcrowded and you won’t be able to relax or hear the “voices of nature”. The problem is the journey to get there! Avoid packages that includes horses. It’s such a cruelty to poor animals that look malnourished and skinny. The animals struggles to walk in a very rocky road and the guide don’t hesitate to whip them every time they stop! I asked a couple times to get off but the guide kept saying it was unsafe and the destination was just minutes away. After leaving the horses outside another ranch, we had to walk down about 320 unevenly steps to reach the first waterfall. Then another 20 steps up to reach the main waterfall. We were lucky to have get there and have enjoyed the beauty and the tranquility of the waterfall before the arrival of a Russian group, the rest you know ... My mind was on the return journey and on the poor animals. I have promised myself to walk all the way back but had to break my promise due to the fact I have been wearing flip flops and that was a big mistake! Hunting boots would have been perfect! The guides, young ladies keep reminding us that they work for the tips (gratuity) only! So be prepared to tip! We have paid DOP4000, (70USD) for the two of us. This price was included; a good home made lunch; fish, rice, beans, salad, water, and Car-parking. There is no need to book in advance and pay a fortune to agents. There is no restriction on number of visitors and admittance is guaranteed! We were stopped by the motorway near the entrance by a group of guys selling packages to the attraction. It’s important to agree the price in advance before following them to the ranch. Again, I strongly recommend to wear hunting boots and be prepared to walk in a very rough rocky road. If you don’t want to have lunch in the ranch and choose no horse it will be much cheaper! But make sure it’s all agreed before! As much myself and my wife will remember the beauty of the waterfall, it will take sometime for us to forget about the cruelty to the animals.

Great destination. Rough journey. We decided to walk the 2km with a guide and it is challenging to say the least. It included walking through water at 4 points and a crazy “stair workout”. If you carry anything in it’ll be that much tougher. But like I said, the destination was definitely worth it.

My boyfriend and I went for what we thought would be an exciting adventure. The breakfast we were promised was only prepackaged muffins in little bags. I was okay but it was definitely not enough to sustain my boyfriend. Next, the boat ride was a solid 45 minutes and a handful of people got boat sick although we only had one bathroom. Next we went on horseback to El Limon. They separated my boyfriend and I so we were both alone for a solid hour. The horses were incredibly malnourished and struggled to carry us along the trails.. It was really hard to see. I offered to walk because it seemed as though my horse was going to collapse, but the guide said, "no, it's just an animal." Not only did I feel terrible for the horse but I was honestly seriously afraid it was going to fall and I would be injured too. The whole thing with the horses being so malnourished and mistreated was disturbing enough not to go on the event. Then when you get to the waterfall you have to walk what felt like 1000 steps. Most of our group struggled. Then when we finally got to the waterfall there were people everywhere! It was so incredibly crowded considering that waterfall isn't that bit. Finally when the day was over I tipped my guide and he was pretty rude about it, despite it being a generous tip. Do not recommend.

If you decide to go to see the falls, please walk there. It’s like 2km walk. Horses are mistreated, very skinny and in bad conditions. Road to falls is very rocky and not easy to walk for a horse, evethought guide was whipping the horse all the time to walk faster. I felt so bad for horses. Guides also whipped other horses as passing them just for a fun. Guides told that they are not getting salary for guiding people to falls, but that’s not true. Anyway, on our way back guide started to tell us how we need to pay them and it felt quite unfomfortable in the middle of the junge. Guides also separated me and my boyfriend to ask money. When we get back and we gave some tip to guides, they just looked as like they didn’t appriciate it at all. Waterfall is amazing, but all the other was aweful. If you want to go to the falls, please walk to dont support their bad treatment with horses.
