This excursion was really worth it even though I was terrified I was going to fall off my horse!! The plane ride was great and I got a lot of great pictures of the view. The horse ride down was about an hour and it was very rocky and muddy in most places. But your horse is directed by a tour guide who owns the horse. Once you got off your horse, you had to walk down about 150 steps to the waterfall which was beautiful!!! My tour guide held my hand almost the whole way so that i wouldn't slip and fall! Every tour guide was extremely nice and helpful. After that we went back and had a really nice lunch, then got on a boat and rode to Bacardi Island where we were able to enjoy the beach and relax before we headed back! If you decide to take this excursion here are some important tips:
- Bring plenty of cash! I wished I would have brought more to tip everyone. I know the excursion is pricy but these people are working their butts off especially your tour guide who is getting you up and down safely. He even held my bags while I swam and washed my feet off!! I'm not even sure if they get paid to do this and this is probably their only job that they do 1-2 times a week! There will also be children who run up to the tour truck and give you flowers...bring coins or dollar bills for them...you will also have your main tour guide and a photographer who rides up and down with you taking pictures....it's a 12 hour excursion so that's the only tips they get for the day.
-These horses are small so if you are overweight you might not want to go. Walking down the steps will wear you out so if you have health issues I wouldn't go. I'm very athletic and I had to pause in the middle of them. I was sore the next day.
-They give you boots but no socks, backpack is a must
I loved it and I Hope this helps!!
