1. Getting there from Las Terrenas / El Limon: You just take the local bus to Samana. From Las Terrenas it starts in front of the cemetery, in Limon from the main Pub. Price about 75 RDS from LT and 25 from EL one way. For me that was the best part of the trip. :) 2. Ask the driver... More

It's definitely an experience that can not easily be found elsewhere. Be aware there is horse riding involved and it is your first time ever riding a horse (like me) there is always risks involved, particularly falling from the horse. Horses "are" a little mistreated but it might be the norm. Some people find the water too cold to swim... More

The horseback ride was bumpy, a little too bumpy for my mom who has had two back surgeries, but fun. The views on the ride were awesome! The guides were very helpful but I do wish they would have included their pay in the initial price. We paid 700 for horse and another 500 for guides. I hesitate to call... More

Well firstly since I had read it is possible to go there on foot, we firstly though we would go on foot, but once we got to the spot it turned out that since it had been raining a lot, then if we don't want to get wet we need to take horses. We didn't have anything against riding a... More

The waterfall was beautiful when we got there, but the trek in is not for the faint of heart. Missing banisters on the steps down added to the safety concerns. I'm not sure I would do it again.

This is a fun and fairly strenuous day out. You need to be suitably clothed with long trousers (with swim shorts under) and good shoes. There are several ways to go about this but we went to a restaurant in the centre of El called ******. They have a car park and from there it is a short walk to... More

We went on ATVs. We got the tour from the hotel we were staying at. Before going up we ate at a ranch, the food was great! Please the men and women who do the guide with the horses!!! they deserve it!!! While we on our horse they guide on foot which is a lot.

We booked to go here through our tour operator which involved a load of other activities with a visit to this waterfall and horse ride included. The actual waterfall is amazing and the pool underneath is beautiful but... The horse ride through the jungle was terrible first you are given a horse and a guide. The horses look really malnourished... More

The day we visited, the stream and waterfall was in full flow... it was truly the most amazing thing i have experienced.... we went for a swim and did not want to come out... the water felt so fresh and cool.. I absolutely loved every second I spent there... was sad when we had to head out. I would recommend... More
