Everything super well organized. There was a tropical storm on the scheduled date and they rearranged everything perfectly for another day. Friendly, efficient ... The theme of the horseback excursion is a bit seedy: there are at least 200 horses (really) and the waterfall is beautiful but there are so many people that it becomes horrible. I recommend reef jet to get around the island as it is fast and cheap.

It was a wonderful day. Very well organized. Food very good and traditional. Because of my pregnancy, we skipped riding and went to the waterfall instead. Personally, I also found it nicer. Riding is not my thing and that way you can experience nature much better. We got a guide for that too. The group only consisted of 6 people, which was very pleasant. We can only recommend the trip, you don't sit in the bus for hours and have more time for the attractions :)

Superb excursion and very well organized from start to finish. First of all, the luck is that we had beautiful weather. It all starts with a flight of around thirty minutes in a Cesna (8 seats) from Punta Cana to Samana. Then take charge in car with driver and guide. Visits to the rubber factory, cigar factory, coffee, etc. Then descent to the Limon waterfall on horseback for about 30 minutes to go back, same ..... very nice ride but very sporty given the very rough course with a course also on foot (athletic). Beautiful waterfall where you can cool off. On the return, typical meal quite nice. Then direction towards Ile de Cayo Levante .... beautiful and supported by speed boat. Return to Samana Airport with small stops to enjoy some of the views. Note that the samana region is very beautiful and very green.
