El Limon, Samana , Dominican Republic

The basics

You can access El Limón Waterfall either on foot or horseback. A visit to the waterfall is a feature of many day trips, which typically depart from Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, and Boca Chica. Some tours combine a visit to the falls with time at Cayo Levantado beach, whale watching, or a zipline ride through the jungle, and most include round-trip transport from your hotel, which makes for a hassle-free day.

El Limon Waterfall and Bacardi Island Tour from Punta Cana
Tour guide Miguel was amazing. Our driver Billy was great. All the spots were worth the long day! I would definitely recommend. Take a bathing suit, socks, sunscreen, hat, towel. And don’t forget money for tips the people really only get paid by the tips.

El Limon Waterfall and Bacardi Island Tour from Punta Cana
Tío Raphael was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He took care of the group and communicated through every hiccup along the way. He was the best part of the trip! It started off rocky, getting drenched on the boat as we battled a storm. We kept it light and laughed it off and moved on. I was looking forward to the waterfall but I never made it due to some physical pain and apprehension over the horses, many of whom were slim and aged. There is the option to walk but we had inclement weather and with my pain, I didn’t want to push it. The people were extremely friendly and welcoming while I waited and made sure I had drinks and conversation until the group got back. I enjoyed my time at the beach, though the drinks were completely watered down and I never got a taste of the promised Mamajuana. Overall, I recommend and would do it again when I’m in better health.

Samana: Cayo levantado ( Bacardi Island) & El Limon Waterfalls from Punta Cana
Very Interesting Tour with good guides. Nevertheless we booked a tour maximum about 15 people. At the End there were at least 50 resulting in a considerable loss of time during drop off at all the hotels

El Limon Waterfall and Bacardi Island Tour from Punta Cana
Miguel, guide and Francisco, driver were just terrific— history of the island, facts about their economy, culture and so much fun. While the stop on Bacardi Island was memorable, the waterfall is EVERYTHING. I would like to note that I was initially apprehensive as reviews mentioned the undernourished and maltreatment of the horses. I did not see a single malnourished horse— and I do not know enough about horses to know if the ride along the cobble filled trail was tough for them. If you are unsure— the hike is to the waterfall is quite pleasant— and short. Only 30 minutes. Make sure to wear a suit as you’ll want to dip into the water—

Great Day Tour with Horseback Riding + Waterfall + Beach Time on a Island

El Limon Waterfall and Bacardi Island Tour from Punta Cana
This was an awesome day tour if you like adventure. The day starts early, we were picked up from our hotel at 6:15am and joined two other groups on the bus then were transferred to another bus with the rest of our larger group from other areas. (this happens for almost all tours in Punta Cana because there are a lot of hotel/resorts and they are very spread out, so it actually saves time instead of riding on the bus for hours to everyone's hotel as there were about 25+ people in our group). The bus ride is a few hours to the coast where they take you on a boat to the Samaná peninsula, not to worry there is bathroom break about halfway! Then the boat is ride is about an hour, it can be choppy so if you get sea-sick take medicine before. Then once you reach Samaná you take a truck ride to the area where you have lunch and the horses are kept. You get matched up with a horse keeper and they guide you through the path to the waterfall Salto del Limón, it's about a 20-30 minute journey on horseback each way. Once you reach near the waterfall you do some walking which is about 10-20 minutes before you reach the waterfall. The walking is a sweat and a decent workout as its uphill and downhill (do not recommend if you don't want do any walking), we did this for my Dad's 66th birthday and he enjoyed it very much but he's also very fit and grew up on an island. So if you're not interested in getting a little dirty, walking, and sweating I do not recommend this tour for you. Then you spend about an hour at the waterfall and then walk back to your horse and ride back to lunch. Lunch is a typical buffet like you see on all the tours, the food was good and you can eat as much as you want. Then you take the boat to Cayo Levantado which is a beautiful island off the coast and hangout there for about two hours they also provide everyone with a pina colada in a pineapple with or without rum! After spending time at the beach you make your journey home the same way it started, boat, bus, hotel bus transfer. We're back to our hotel by 7:20pm. Overall the day and trip was beautiful and so much fun! We made so many friends and memories. Rafael was our tour guide and he was awesome! Great tour with friendly tour people and locals. Highly recommend this tour!

Miguel and Daniel were our guides for the day. They were very personable. The ride was fun and informative. The waterfall was insanely colorful. The island was picture perfect and more remote compared to other locations. Great trip. Bring lots of cash for tips as there are multiple people who will interact with you through the day.
