... Samana from as high as 1,500 feet. Unfortunately, the heavy rain overnight made me skip the area’s top natural attraction, the Salto de Limon, a waterfall that’s either an hour hike each way along a steep and usually very muddy trail or a guided horse ride trip, and those things scare me. I always think of Christopher Reeve whenever I ride a horse; if a horse could do that to Superman, imagine what one could do to a chubby middle-aged guy like ...

After two nights at Rancho La Cueva I set out for my next destination: Las Galeras. Playa Limon was a nice stop on my way up from Punta Cana but unfortunately not a necessary destination that I would go out of my way for again.
