Las Terrenas and the Salto del Limón
A slice of the barefoot Caribbean, plus a spectacular waterfall
An unforgettable experience in tropical Samaná Peninsula.
Less well known than other Dominican beach zones, the town of Las Terrenas and surrounding area of the Samaná Peninsula is also more lightly touristed than other towns - closer to the pristine Caribbean of yore with its spectacular beaches, forests, and amazing landscapes. One particularly cool local must is the Salto al Limón, a jungle waterfall reachable in a bit less than an hour on foot or - the most popular approach - on horseback. When you finally arrive, the vegetation opens up to reveal a spectacular 50-metre (164-foot) cascade with a natural pool to splash around in at the bottom.
