El Limon, Dominican Republic

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 .
