We drove to El Limon and went to a local restaurant that also runs excursions to the waterfalls. The guy was really friendly and it was $20 each or we could have paid a bit more and also had a meal but we had just eaten. We had a guide and my daughter and I were on horseback and he... More

I had seen the photos of this gorgeous natural wonder and wanted to see it for myself. I knew it would be a bit of a journey but I was up for it. I don't ride horses but felt very comfortable with my horse and guide. My guide was so knowledgeable and proud of his country. He really took time... More

My friends all LOVED this trip to the waterfalls. They gushed about the fantastic ride in and the wonderful falls. I couldn't wait to go. I must be getting old. Or jaded. Or something. I really REALLY didn't enjoy this excursion much. In a nutshell you ride (or you can walk in but you still have to have a guide)... More

Finally, we went to Limon Waterfall. Upon arrival, you are able to rent rain boots( do it!!! $3 US) and helmets. The horses are a little pitiful. Each horse... More

There are several travel companies that provide all-day excursions to El Limon. The excursion that I took was a full 14-hour day from pick-up to drop-off back at the hotel. It is about a two hour bus ride from Punta Cana to Samana, which is the departure place by truck up into the mountains. My trip included a stop at... More

The waterfall located at El Limon is a must see. We traveled to the waterfall on horseback with guides. Be prepare for a long physical walk up and down some steep staircases.
