Tour Details

If horses, jungle, and swimming under waterfalls sounds appealing, this private Horseback Ride and Falls tour of Samana Province of the Dominican Republic is absolutely perfect for your group.

After meeting your guide at the pier, you will drive to the national park, approximately 30 minutes away, where your horses are waiting. Along the way, a stop may be taken at panoramic sites. After saddling up, you will set off through the jungle on your horse. The horses are experts at traversing the uneven terrain, which includes a couple of steep inclines. There is also a local horse handler who will walk alongside each horse in the group.

The ride to the falls takes approximately 30 minutes each way. Once we arrive at the top of the El Limón waterfall, we will dismount and begin the hike to the base of the falls 100 feet below. There are handrails along most of the path down and over 250 steps. The last 300 yards of the steep path includes walking on uneven surfaces that can also become muddy. It is worth the hike. Spend some time swimming in the refreshing waters of the waterfall's large pool. You can also swim into the falls and see the cave underneath. Time at the falls is approximately 40 minutes.

After your swim and picture taking, you will climb back up to the top of the falls where, after a short break, you will mount your horse for your ride back out. Once you arrive at the ranch you can wash up before enjoying a delicious homemade lunch, cooked entirely over a wood fire. The lunch is served buffet style and usually features a Dominican stewed beef and/or chicken, plus salads, vegetables, fruit and coffee. There is something for everyone, including vegetarians.

From here, you will be taken back to the cruise pier.
