“Added Tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We went on a trip to El Limon waterfalls as an excursion. While the falls was beautiful and the horses we were on were excellent, we felt sorry for them. They are all in a row and although the horses were following one another, the guides that take you kept smacking the horses - not hard enough to hurt, but to make them jolt a little. The path that they take is also very rocky and slippery and the horse would stumble once in awhile. Half way back, the guides stopped us and demanded a tip, stating the tour company does not pay them. We had to argue back on the trail for 10 minutes before they let us continue. We were not happy with this at all. As well, when we were at the falls, so many other people came, that it quickly became too crowded and you couldn't move. They should only allow so many people in and out for crowd control. Not worth the money or aggravation to go.

“horsetrek to the waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The horse ride was very good, going over steep terrain to the waterfall. The horses (and the guide with the horse) had to work very hard to get us there. The waterfall itself was impressive but ultimately a bit of a let down. Definitely worth it though for the horse trek (no riding skills required). Most of the horses were provided by volunteers but every horse came with a volunteer to ensure a safe ride to the waterfall. These volunteers are not paid and rely solely on tips from the touris. We were not that well informed about this and regretted this. Seeing that the walk to and from was quite arduous, I think they deserve a good tip. Especially having seen that most of the volunteers are poor.
