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.

Deep into the rainforest, this waterfall is a diamond of nature, cristal water and great place to swim.

We were sent to Chez Santi in El Limon, the restaurant outpost for Santi Rancho for our excursion to El Limon - the must see waterfall on the Samana Peninsula.

Santi is a warm and welcoming (and english speaking) host. He arranged a guide for us to El Limon waterfall, and we had a delicious lunch afterwards at Chez Santi. He kindly accommodated our request to walk to the falls as opposed to riding on a horse for most of the trek. This was fun for us but it is a strenuous walk, only recommended for those in good physical condition.
While on our trek, I saw that many other tour groups were led by young children, and I really appreciate the fact that Santi does not use child labor. The meal we had after our adventure was delicious, especially after the long hike.

I highly recommend making arrangements to visit El Limon through Santi Rancho. There are many "tour guides" in the area as you approach El Limon, and I suggest that you go only with a reputable establishment like this one.
