Explore the interior of the Samana Peninsula by horseback. The mountain range reaches an altitude of 2,100 feet. Upon arrival at the ranch, you'll be greeted by your guides who will provide you with a safety briefing and instructions on how to handle your horse. Each rider will be assisted by a skilled horse handler. Wind your way through the countryside for approximately 30-minutes before arriving at an area where you'll dismount and hike down the remaining way to the spectacular falls. Upon arrival to the falls, you'll be awestruck by the cascade of cold water rising 120 feet. Relax nearby with the mist cooling you or take a swim in the refreshing natural pool. Then, make the hike back up to the horses for a cool drink of water before returning to the ranch.
Note: Participants must be at least 10 years of age and weigh no more than 250 lbs. It is not recommended for those with back or leg problems. We recommend you wear hiking shoes or shoes with gripping soles. Wear your swimsuit and bring a towel.

Customer Reviews for Salto El Limon Horseback Ride
We had a fabulous time on this excursion. It says horseback riding, but there are mule's too. I was so impressed with the young men (one older woman) that were assigned to each animal. They walked by each of us and assisted us whenever needed. They were in such good shape. It's 30 minutes to the falls through uneven, rocky, hills, wet and narrow terrain. These people are so fit. 184 stairs down and 40 up to the falls. They are all volunteers and are with you every step of the way. Bring money for a tip. The average is about $10. We gave our guides $25. They worked so hard to make our experience a good one that we thought they were more than deserving.
I had the BEST time at the Salto El LImon Horseback ride excursion. Out of all the excursions we went on, this by far was the best one. The waterfalls are so beautiful and the staff is very friendly. They provide you with helmet, boots, and a cape in case it is raining. When I went, it was raining but it was still worth it. On your way to the ranch, the tourguide tells you a lot about Samana and the Dominican Republic as a whole. The excursion is not rushed at all and you do not feel under pressure. The horses are all very well kept. They also give you samples of Dominican coffee, and cocoa beans. I can go on and on about this excursion but I think it will be best for you to see it for yourself. Thank you!
We went horse back riding and had a blast! The view was beautiful. The only problem is that the ride is escorted and everyone gets one person to escort them. ( totally needed since the hills are very steep and not paved) However, we were never informed of this. It's hard to tip someone when you don't carry cash on you. BUT overall a great experience
