When I found out we were assigned to the Dominican Republic, I did what any cliche traveler does, and searched for the best things to do/see on this island. As I scrolled through google and Pinterest, a specific waterfall kept catching my eye.
As soon as we got our dates for our vacation, I searched where that specific waterfall was to see if it would be possible to visit. It was located in the beautiful town of Samana, so that is where Derek and I decided to “vacation” to. You can see our whole weekend spent there in my previous post.The waterfall didn’t disappoint. The hike to the waterfall was the perfect amount of distance (1.5 miles each way). It was a bit rocky, but the hike was beautiful. At one point, we came out on top of a mountain and saw forests of palm trees. It was one of the most interesting and beautiful views I’ve ever seen.
As we approached the waterfall, other tourists were heading back down the trail, leaving us and our group almost completely alone to swim. The water was refreshing after our hike, and we had fun swimming under the waterfall, cliff jumping, and relaxing.
I’ve done a lot of hiking in my life, and this one is definitely towards the top of my list. It was the perfect start to our weekend vacation, and the perfect reminder of how beautiful this world, this island, and this life of mine is.
If you ever find yourself in the Dominican Republic, add the Cascada El Limon waterfall hike to your list.
Onto the next adventure, Wren
