Hidden in the depths of the Samana jungle, marvel at El Limon, a 52 m (170 ft) cascading waterfall, a result of the Arroyo Chico river. A rugged trail through tropical steep terrain, your journey starts from the small town located roughly 5.6 km (3.4 mi) from the falls. Once you reach the falls, a picturesque site awaits, with a chance to refresh yourself in the cool water pools. Numerous tours run along this trail both on foot and on horseback. If you choose to travel by foot, wear appropriate footwear as paths are slippery and pass many rivers. Research operators of horse back tours before choosing, due to some reports of poor animal treatment. To visit El Limon on your trip to Dominican Republic, use our Dominican Republic trip planner .

He showed us what cocoa and mango plant is. The path was not muddy at all, we had put on our water shoes as a precaution, but they were later useful in the basin of the waterfall. Our guide has walked all the way in bathing slippers. On horses I wouldn't have wanted to climb the screedy path, even if they would have looked well maintained.
Cascade magnifique avec eaux rafraîchissantes avant d’y accéder nous avons fait une balade à cheval. Et après nous être baigné dans la cascade nous avons eu droit à un déjeuner. Très belle journée more »Beautiful waterfall with refreshing waters before accessing it we took a horse ride. And after we bathed in the waterfall we were treated to lunch. Very nice day
