The transportation Pedro was great, he was on time and was very communicative. The guide Luis took really good care of me. The boat staff was friendly and on time. On our way to las Cañitas, we made a stop to use the restrooms and to a souvenir store. As we continued to were we grabbed the boat, we had a quick 10 min breakfast/snack which were sandwiches with fresh fruits. The sandwich is cheese and bologna/ham. When we grabbed the boat to go to Samana, we were offered professional photography service for $50, which is worth it, the guys takes plenty of pictures of your group and in different places. Then when we got off the boat we got into a safari looking bus. that finally took us to El Limon. The horses were in good condition, The waterfall is beautiful. However; the rocks, mud, the way it's scary. 25 min approx. you have to climb up about 280 steps and down as well. Cayo Levantado, had jellyfish some people got stung, I do not recommend getting in that water. Overall Good.

The trip exceeded all expectations. It was really just about the beautiful flora and fauna. No tourist rip-offs, no over-tourism. No sales pitches. You could enjoy the whole day in peace and marvel without being constantly approached. We can only recommend this trip. Our tour guide Miguel was very direct.

I loved the tour! The guide was very cool, explaining several things of interest, paying attention to every detail of the ride, the boat was large, comfortable, and there was music and even a photographer. The beautiful tour, very punctual and the typical delicious lunch.

Recommended excursion, the Haitises are a place you have to visit once in your life. Everything very well organized.

It was nice but we didn’t do the horses and it’s not like they refund then that part
