Activities Excursions in Las Terrenas Samana Peninsula

Tailor-made Excursions:

There are three options for enjoying El Limon Waterfall;

1. On foot. Minimum fitness is recommended.

On foot, the round trip to the Waterfall takes about 3 hours and you and your friends can set out at the hour that suits you best.

2. On horseback.

Specially recommended in the rainy season, or when the trails are muddy. The horses are really tame. For 90% of our visitors it is their first experience on horseback!
In the company of our expert guides, the round trip takes about 3 hours.

3. Canoeing on the El Limon River

This excursion is completely new and novel as no other ranch offers it. You can also combine excursions, some trekking while others go on horseback. Let the expert trekker Santi organize your a la carte excursion.

Get to know the surrounding area of El Limon.

The coastline, east of El Limon, is a fascinating display of Mother Natures´ best, with lots of tiny hidden coves and splendid wide unspoiled beaches. This is the true Caribbean we all dream about.

Playa Morón, Lanza al Norte, la Cana, are ideal for walks or discovering on horseback. Peace and quiet and maybe a chance encounter with the local fishermen or farmers along the way. Well worth it! Time: 3 to 4 hours.

Booking:

We do not organize big groups so you can just arrive at any time at Santi Ranch-Restaurant (between Las Terrenas and Samaná) and set out at your own pace.

We do advise you to book in advance by phone and take full advantage of the cooler morning temperatures and also avoid the afternoon rush of tour groups.
