We drove to the waterfall, parked our car and took a horse to the waterfall. It was pretty crowded and the water looked dirty, We were told because it had rained alot recently, the waterfall was very strong not good to go for a swim and cold.

Did a trip here. I didn't enjoy it at all. Uncomfortable horse ride along a slippery, rocky path. Thought I was going to fall off and break my neck. Then had to walk down a load of difficult steps to a grubby, muddy area where if you fancied it, you could swim by the waterfall. Then a long trudge back.... More

This is a few buses and boat rides away from the resorts in Punta Cana and it's a day well spent. The falls are in the middle of the rainforest away from the road so getting there involves a ride on horseback followed by a hike down so it's a little physical. Make sure you bring water. On the horseback... More

El salto del limon is a waterfall located in a small village called el limon, Samana. If you are planning to go to the dominican republic this a place to stop by, have to take one day so you can enjoy this place. Have to get there by car to the village and then find one of the many entrances,... More

We saddle up and start the horseback ride through the lush forest until we reach the 196,85 feet high lemon Waterfall. rnThis waterfall is one of the highest and most beautiful ones in the Dominican Republic. Arriving at the ranch where we leave the horses we have an incredible view of the fall below. After a refreshing dip in the... More

If you walk this trip it will be a slog and on a hot day it may be a little too much. You will probably be encouraged to go on an expensive excursion that involves transfer and a horseback ride to the falls where you can take a dip. It is a highly organized, conveyor belt experience and it has... More

Too much physical exertion is required to go down and back up to and from the actual falls. If you aren't in great shape, take a pass.

1. Getting there from Las Terrenas / El Limon: You just take the local bus to Samana. From Las Terrenas it starts in front of the cemetery, in Limon from the main Pub. Price about 75 RDS from LT and 25 from EL one way. For me that was the best part of the trip. :) 2. Ask the driver... More

It's definitely an experience that can not easily be found elsewhere. Be aware there is horse riding involved and it is your first time ever riding a horse (like me) there is always risks involved, particularly falling from the horse. Horses "are" a little mistreated but it might be the norm. Some people find the water too cold to swim... More

The horseback ride was bumpy, a little too bumpy for my mom who has had two back surgeries, but fun. The views on the ride were awesome! The guides were very helpful but I do wish they would have included their pay in the initial price. We paid 700 for horse and another 500 for guides. I hesitate to call... More
