Cascade aux Ecrevisses, Parc National

(3.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Swim in the cool waters underneath Cascade aux Ecrevisses. The waterfall itself is pleasant, but small and not particularly noteworthy. However, the pool below is rarely crowded, and swimming in the cool waters amid the sights and sounds of the rainforest can be a surreal experience. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, you can jump off the nearby rock faces into the pool, but watch your step on the slippery rocks. After your swim, follow a nearby footpath to reach a quiet picnic area next to the river, where you can dry off and relax.

  • Waterfall crayfish is a beautiful waterfall in the middle of the forest. It is easy to access with a track that allows you to access in a few minutes on foot from the car park. Swim can quickly be complicated because it is not great and if there is world you'll have to wait. But you can also admire the landscape of the river nearby (less easy to access if you go through the stones) to see

  • Waterfall and the tropical forest at its best, made available with few steps from the road.
  • Small hike to a nice waterfall.
  • A nice way to discover your family a tropical waterfall. After that, its very easy access brings an impressive crowd. As a result, the site is quickly saturated. Best to get there at the very beginning or end of the day.

  • Nice to see, is perhaps still not at the height of the pub that is made. It certainly comes from the fact that there are a lot of people and it's not great to appreciate this place relatively little.

  • Is the waterfall of easier access, reached by a path about five minutes immersed in the tropical forest. Very beautiful!
