Salto del Limón
Since a group of pilots accidentally discovered the Salto del Limón overflying its surroundings in 1981, this natural paradise is part of the portfolio of ecotourism temples in the Dominican Republic and one of the most paradisiacal places in the country, according to the portal www.ecoturismo. Com.do.
Likewise, the company Caoba was the first to sell the Salto del Limón as a compulsory route for ecotourists from 1986, a service offered to foreign visitors who came to the country for an experience different from the trite concept of “sun, Beach and all inclusive “.
But it was 15 years ago, in 1997, when excursions to Salto del Limón became another option for foreign visitors staying in hotels in Puerto Plata, so in 1998 the five ranchos that served as hostels were unified and (ACESAR), which has experienced a growth of 160% to be integrated by 13 country inns.
In this way, a beautiful portion of our country that was discovered by accident, means the livelihood of hundreds of people, while placing thousands of internal and external tourists a year in contact with mother nature in a unique way.
Going to Salto del Limón is quite an adventure. Everything starts when getting up at 5:00 A.M, in a hurry, so that the bus does not leave, without counting on occupying good seats. Being comfortable is an invaluable item when it comes to a two-and-a-half-hour trip, comprising 250 kilometers between Santo Domingo and the municipality of El Limón, in Samaná.
