We arranged a tour ahead of time with Terry ([--]). He met us at the dock and loaded us (all 8) into his SUV and we headed into town to drop off DW, DD (5), and MIL with a friend of Terry's wife who braided my daughter's whole head for $25! She still has it in over two weeks later! Terry had a cooler of cold beverages for us to enjoy on the ride.

Terry drove the rest of us (two adults and kids 14, 13, and 11) up to where his family has some land that overlooks the bay - absolutely gorgeous. We then went to the trailhead where we got matched up with our horses for the ride to El Limon waterfall. The trail is pretty rough (lots of stones and uneven ground), but the guides walk or run along side to make sure the horses keep moving and we didn't have any of the problems that I read about on other threads.

Once we got to the end of the trail, it's a bit of a hike down to where the waterfall is. We were a little concerned by the people huffing and puffing their way back up that we were meeting on the way down, but it wasn't all that bad. At the waterfall, Terry had the horse guides watch our stuff while we went swimming. Terry guided us behind the falls to a small cave - very intense, but worth it! There was also a place where the kids dove into a pool and walked across the stream with the help of a rope - Terry being downstream to make sure they didn't slip. He wouldn't allow the kids to dive off the big waterfall the way some people were, but that was ok with the parents

After drying off, dressing, and hiking back up the hill, we got on the horses and headed back. Terry kept pointing out different kinds of trees along the way and had everyone sniffing various leaves - who knew that grapefruit leaves smell exactly like Froot Loops!

When we got back to the trailhead, Terry had arranged a late lunch for us of chicken (prepared two different ways), rice and beans, fried plantains (I think), bread and soda or water. It was very good, and not just because we were hungry after all the riding/swimming

We then headed back to the dock to catch a tender back out to the ship.

Terry provided a great experience for everyone involved and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him if you want to see some beautiful areas of Samaná.
