Las Terrenas: El Limón Waterfall Trekking Tour

1. Las Terrenas: El Limón Waterfall Trekking Tour

The trek is pretty easy and requires a basic fitness level. The trail is about 2 kilometers long, it goes up and down, but nothing too steep. The walk takes about 30 minutes, more if you stop often to take pictures. The views along the way are breath-taking, with lush hills and the sea on the horizon. Most of the path is shady, the trail winds through the jungle, and some cacao and coffee fields at the beginning. You have to cross the river a few times, it’s not deep, but it’s a good idea to pack slip-proof shoes that can get wet for the trek, especially if it has been raining as the path can get pretty muddy. Before reaching the waterfall, you’ll get a stunning view over the lush jungle, with the waterfall peeping from the trees. There, you’ll find a small local shop where you can buy snacks and drinks, as well as local items such as cacao and coffee. You can also try Mamajuana, a type of local rum infused with dozens of local herbs, some with medicinal properties. Just ask your guide about it! You can get under the waterfall to enjoy a strong massage or get a bit further under it to see the hidden caves. The water is just the perfect temperature to relax after the walk, with the pool shaded by the trees. Depending on rainfalls and the season you’re visiting, the amount of water coming out of the waterfall might not be the same, but you’ll always be able to swim in the pool.

Las Terrenas: ATV Coffee Trail Cultural Tour

3. Las Terrenas: ATV Coffee Trail Cultural Tour

The tour will take you through country roads boarded by cacao and coffee fields, spectacular views over the Samana bay, and local farms. We’ll stop at a classic mountain farm, sharing some time with a family of farmers. You’ll be able to see some of the products they produce and visit their farm, learning about organic farming and plants. You’ll witness the difference between Las Terrenas, a busy beach destination, and the countryside, with its clean air and slow-paced way of life. If you want, the farmers will show you how coffee or cacao is made, from the tree to your table. You can then sip on a cup of coffee or hot cocoa. Don’t worry, if you don’t speak Spanish, our local tour guide will translate everything for you. Next stop is a small beach on the Samana Bay where you can take a dip and cool off for a while. On the way, we’ll pass through many fields, farms, and viewpoints. Most of the trip is on dirt roads, it’s a lot of fun driving the ATV there, up and down, through bumps and holes. If you are not 100% comfortable driving an ATV or if speed is not your thing, don’t worry, you can either drive slow (more time to enjoy the view!) or you can ride with someone, most ATV can sit two people. Driving an ATV is pretty straightforward and even if it’s your first time you should get the hang of it pretty quickly.
