What people are saying about Samaná Province

Very good activity, Carlito and Ricardo are super friendly, I was late to go to the port and I found that they left but Ricardo came back to pick me up with a motorbike and it was a great experience. Remember to take cash with you because the people who bring you back to the waterfall with the horses are volunteers and it makes them happy to think of them with a small tip, the activity in general went very well and I loved everything. Thank you once again and do not hesitate to make this experience it is really worth it.

Very good day ! We discover the El Limon Waterfall after a horseback ride in the jungle accompanied by a guide on horseback (paid with tip). Possibility to swim a little. Then head to Bacardi Island where you can also swim. Be careful though, this excursion is quite long (departure at 6:45 a.m. and return to the hotel around 9 p.m. for us).

It was excellent… the highlight of my trip. My father love it and the added Photografer Isael was an amazing choice,

Had a great time! Some friends who joined didn’t even snorkel but enjoyed the overall vibe of the boat ride.

Perfect tour. The crew was really kind and helpful. Totally worth the money
