“Santi rancho rocks!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We've been there today, and it's definitely worth it! For $25 dollars you get a tame horse with a very friendly guide, a 30min ride to the waterfall, as much time as you need to take a dip and great tasty lunch afterwards.
Santi, who runs the place, is a charming, full of passion type of guy. The horses are tame, but like to race a little. The waterfall is gorgeous, but watch out on the slippery rocks. Its deffinitely worth to have a swim. It's really wet around, so don't bring to much stuff with you, and be prepared to get your shoes wet (don't wear flip flops!).
Take into account, that you're expected to tip the guide ($5-$10), you'll be able to buy some locally made cocoa and coffee (RD200 a piece), and some guy will try to sell you a photo he made at the beggining (RD300, easy to haggle down). Still it's worth it, as the money goes back to the community!

The best way to book is to do it directly! Google for "santi rancho el limon".

“Sore Bum”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Excellent value excursion, in a stunning natural environment, two hours worth of quality mule riding over rolling countryside, lots to see with a very refreshing dip at the end

“Animal cruelty.”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

If you plan a trip here please opt to walk and do not ride the horses. The horses endure severe pain walking up and down hills of slippery rocks with your weight on their backs. At some points it seems as if their legs are about to break. This should not be allowed or supported. The walk/hike is moderate.

“Clever way of spending rainy day”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The half day trip with horse ride and watching waterfalls was worth the try. Lucky for us, on that day, it was the only day it rained while we were in Domican Republic.

“If you like horseback riding....”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Beautiful waterfall but to get there you have to take a horse(you pay about 5 dollar or so for the horses and to show you the waterfalls) then you go down many steps..you can also walk but I would not recommend it if it has been raining the day before because of all the mud is almost impossible to walk. Its fun to do all those activities to get to the waterfalls, do it have some fun!
