Salto el Limón Waterfall

Salto el Limón Waterfall Review

Provided that you're fit and willing to deal with a long and slippery path, an adventurous guided trip to the spectacular Salto el Limón Waterfall is a delight. The journey is done mostly on horseback, but includes some walking down rocky, sometimes muddy trails. You'll have to cross two rivers en route. Horse paths are slippery, and the trek is strenuous. The well-mannered horses take you across rivers and up mountains to El Limón, where you can find the 165-foot waterfall amid luxuriant vegetation. Some snacks and drinks are usually included in the guided trip, but a grilled chicken lunch is only a few more pesos. The outpost for the trek, a local guide service called Santi Rancho, is relatively difficult to find; it's best to ask your hotel for detailed directions or arrange a tour from an operator like Flora Tours in Las Terrenas. The trip to the waterfall by horseback takes 40 minutes each way; the entire excursion lasts about three hours.
