El Limon waterfall, known in Spanish as el Salto del Limón or Cascada el Limón is tucked away in the beautiful Samana province in the Dominican Republic. This stunning waterfall, with its 52 meters high drop, is the highest and most famous waterfall in the whole country and a must-see spot while visiting the DR.
Reaching El Limón Waterfall is an adventure that takes you on a 2.5-kilometer (1.5-mile) journey through thick forest, on horseback, or foot down lush hilly terrain while spotting flora and fauna along the way. You can also go canyoning through the El Limón river to reach the falls. Native plants grow abundantly here in the wild, like the royal palm tree and pineapples. Birds are also ubiquitous, like the palmchat–the DR’s national bird–the Hispaniolan woodpecker, and the Broad-billed tody. Once at the falls, marvel at the beauty of El Limón’s tumbling cascade–dropping 40 meters (130 feet) from the top of Sierra de Samaná. Cool off from the journey in the freshwater emerald pool beneath the falls, and take in the surrounding wild, jungle landscape and gushing sounds of El Limón.
