Whale Watching & El Limon Waterfall Samana Day Trip (January-April Only)

What To Expect

We’ll pick you up at your Punta Cana hotel early in the morning (usually 6:00 am – 7:30 am depending on your hotel) and stop at a convenient meeting place to arrange the transportation. During the 1.5-hour ride, you’ll have the chance to see the Dominican countryside and East Coast while the guide shares information about the local customs and life in the Dominican Republic.

When you arrive in Las Canitas, you will be welcomed by the locals. You will be able to enjoy a healthy breakfast if you didn’t have time or opportunity to do so at your hotel. Then, once breakfast is finished and we have a chance to relax, it’s time to board the boat to ride through the beautiful Samana Bay-the home of the Humpback Whale season- few months per year, till reaching the small town of Samana, called Santa Barbara.

From the dock, we’ll board a truck and journey to the most magnificent waterfall in Costa Rica, El Salto de Limon (Limon Waterfall)! Then we’ll be taken to a ranch located in the mountains and taken on a short horseback riding tour along the Arroyo Chico River. The dense vegetation will captivate your senses and leave you with a real taste of adventure. This trail leads to the picturesque Limon Waterfall: a waterfall with a drop of 170 feet right in the middle of the jungle. Splash yourself in the refreshing waters of the lagoons at the base of the waterfall. Be sure to take a memorable picture of your family and yourself in this place!

After an adventure-filled morning, the afternoon will be devoted to relaxation. We’ll get back into our open air truck and head down to the dock for a boat ride to the gorgeous Cayo Levantado, also known as “Bacardi Island”. This tropical paradise will take your breath away with its scenic landscapes and tropical oasis. You will enjoy the warm turquoise water and white sand beaches of this unique and relaxing island. Enjoy a cocktail on the beach of this lost paradise as you explore the island, swim, snorkel, or simply relax.

As the day ends, you will be taken back to Miches, and be dropped back at your Punta Cana hotel.
