After boarding our charter flight in Punta Cana, you will enjoy a relaxing half-hour trip to Samana’s Arroyo Barril Airport. Called the Eden of the Dominican Republic, the peninsula of Samana boasts some of the most pristine beaches and lush forests in the Caribbean. Safari trucks will be awaiting your arrival in the scenic and peaceful port town to immediately begin your adventure into the mountainous terrain of Samana.
At our first stop, you will enjoy some time to taste test some of the region’s most notable produce, including juicy pineapple, mouth-watering mangos, and succulent papaya. Once you have had your fill, you you will saddle up for a 30-minute horseback ride over the rivers and Limon waterfall’s muddy path.
Salto del Limon Waterfall
El Salto de Limon is truly an awe-inspiring sight, positioned deep within the tropical forest of Samana. You are welcome to take a few moments to cool off and go for a swim within the refreshing green lagoon, while catching up-close views of the tremendous 170 feet cascades.
Following the journey to the waterfall you will enjoy a Dominican lunch of chicken, fish, beans, rice, fresh fruit, and dessert.*
Relax at a Paradisiacal Island
After satisfying your appetite, you will travel in a private boat to Cayo Levantado, or Bacardi Island. Nestled among the palm trees and crystal blue waters, the bar offers a variety of drinks to wet your whistle with a stunning mountainous backdrop. It is highly recommended that you try a real Caribbean Piña Colada, served right in the pineapple!*

Customer Questions & Answers

We are staying in an airbnb apt in Punta Cana. Do we need to get transportation to a resort on the list, or may we be picked up in front of the place we are staying?

Hello Michelle, You would need to get to one of the listed hotels for pickup. I recommend choosing the Sheraton Four Points since you can park your car in the parking lot of Punta Cana Village which is right in front of the hotel. You would be dropped off there at the end of the day and you just get in your car and drive back to where you’re staying.

I really want to do this tour but am skeptical since I am going with my 7 month old. I really want to go to Salto de Limon waterfall but it seems every tour I have seen requires to get there by horseback. What do you recommend?
1 month 10 days ago
Indeed horseback riding is highly recommended to get to Salto del Limon. You can walk there (the guides walk there and back on each trip) but due to the distance I wouldn’t recommend it since you’d take longer than the rest of the group to get there and once you get there it would almost be time to return so you’d enjoy Salto del Limon less time than everyone else.
You could carry your baby on a chest strap if you feel comfortable riding a horse with him or her. The horse ride is at a slow pace so it’s as safe as it can be.

Would this be good to do with young children? Ages 4 and 6?

Our main interest in this tour is the Cayo Levantado portion. Is it possible to alter the itinerary so we can go directly to the island, rather than the other locations and still be able to return with the group at the end of the day?
