Take a horseback adventure to the majestic El Limon Waterfall in the Dominican Republic’s Samaná Province. Only accessible by foot or horseback, you will be utilizing the best mode of transport on this 5-hour excursion to a magical, natural wonderland.
What to Expect
Discovered by Christopher Columbus - who was greeted by spears - the Samaná Province is shrouded by mountains and fringed by the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Said to be the most beautiful region of the Dominican Republic, on this day tour you will visit one of the area's most spectacular jewels.
The Cascada El Limon is buried deep in the rainforest and cannot be reached by motorized vehicle. Crystal clear water pours over the spectacular fall, measuring 148 foot (45 meters) high. Spilling into a beautiful natural pool and river beneath, it remains remarkably undisturbed by man.
Better still, it is just 1-hour by coach from the hotels of Samaná.
You will be picked up at 09:00 from any hotel in Samaná and travel by air-conditioned bus in the company of a professional tour guide. They will inform you about the land, the people and their ancient cultures. Hear how the Spanish conquistadors were resisted, and why thousands of humpback whales come each year to breed off the coast.
Arriving at the Limon Adventures Ranch, you will be introduced to your horse and will then set off through the thick jungle towards the roar of the waterfall. Spend time at the falls splashing about in the water and taking souvenir snapshots that will be the envy of your friends.
Next you will head back to the ranch to have a local lunch, consisting of typical Dominican Rice, red beans, chicken, red meat, green salad, bread or pasta. To close it off, coffee will be served after a refreshing fruit salad.
Enjoy around fifteen minutes free time to make that all important siesta. You will then visit a mini cigar factory to learn about the tobacco plant and see some cigar being rolled. Spend a little time doing some souvenir shopping before heading back to your hotel at around 15:00.
