when getting there you will be told that the walk to the waterfall is over an hour. it is much less, they are just trying to sell you the horse trip. the waterfall is not half as nice as on the pictures, big disappointment. but if you insist on going, do NOT horse-ride up there: the horses (technically ponies) are underfed, not cared for, sick and wounded, and all we have seen today is huge fat dominican tourists riding tiny super-skinny, exhausted ponies to the top of the hill. The ponies are beaten all the way up. It is sad to watch. They are not even given water. horrible experience

I've never been on horse-back before, but this was a great experience being taken through the jungle for half an hour - it was a bumpy ride but really glad we did it. Our guide was great, taking control of my camera to get some really good pics. The waterfall is stunning and worth having a swim underneath.

Loved the waterfall and we had a lot of fun even with all the mud and smelly boots!
the bad part, still have to tip the guides even after the expensive package we payed. Just it's not fair. After all you pay for a horse trip with guide but the guide fee is not included? Seems like a rip-off.

I loved, loved, loved El Salto. The ride was exciting and a bit adventurous. We took the rougher road, which you climb down by horse then leave the horse and go further down. Our guide, Chicho, was awesome. We appreciated being able to see the waterfall from the front and enjoy its beauty from several points. These horses are not thoroughbreds. They are horses kept on strict diets and are trained for these tours. My horse, Moro, was adventurous, which fit me perfectly, lol. I will be going to El Salto again. I can't wait to show others this beauty. For those faint at heart I understand there is a shorter, less rocky route.

This is a tough review---the waterfall tour was simply gorgeous. But the horses we rode to ride through the jungle & up the mountain were obviously poorly kept and treated. It isn't something I'd do again. There is other access to the waterfall, so ask around and find out how to get to it from the shorter side... the beach side--not the valley side.

WEAR a bathing suit under your hiking clothes! You can swim under the waterfall once you arrive. It's gorgeous!!!
