  • Great little corner of paradise but very difficult to access (and also prohibited). The road is very rough, muddy, steep descent, no longer marked and it is easy to get wrong. Must go well shod and with enough water. The ascent is easier. The waterfall is deserved but it is splendid. Elevation = 110 m / distance = 900 m / time = 30-50 min(si enfants) the ride back by ex.

  • Path very badly damaged, the descent is more difficult than the ascent. On the way you will find a few tags that will tell you that you are on the right track. We went there a few hours after the rain so the road was slippery and muddy waterfall. However, Sun, dry weather hiking should be very nice with a very nice final. Attention to your cars, ours has been broken in the parking lot of the abandoned 'restaurant'...

  • Great afternoon at the jump of the crack. It's really a mini hike which was difficult only because of the last hurricane that to hit La Guadeloupe in 2017... but otherwise there is a passable trail that leads to a pretty waterfall. This a place cut off from the world or only mother nature makes good figure, it's so peaceful that the time seems to stop.

  • Tricky and very muddy path, and hard to find the way. Took about 25 mins down and 15 up, we ended up on top of the fall though, and did not have time to make it down, try to hold a higher ground as you get closer to the falls. Very beautiful, worth the walk!
  • Easy 5-min walk with a nice waterfall at the end.
  • 29/10/2017. Path virtually impassable or even not found following hurricanes, full of trees in the way and the landslides of land, but it persevered even. And at the bottom a spectacle despite the very clear water. That it must have been before? After to have surveyed the bottom, no branches, so we tried the jump, but to go upstairs, the only path that is found is on the left while climbing forest, good galley. We took some risk, it was measured at the time, but afterwards we were crazy. But what memories... I have no regrets because everything went very well, it suggests that the positive and pride for the galley of the descent and the ascent also, but I recommend to do the same crazy at this time of the year , especially after hurricanes. I said that above it is very clear it is forbidden to go down.

  • N track has not been redone since the storm. Very very hard physically. We arrived above the break but we have not seen it completely it's still very pretty, but the path is really very muddy and very steep... very very complicated...

  • Hike a little hassle because it slips a lot. It was not possible to desncdre at the foot of the waterfall with the landscaped trail. We're coming up, so we haven't seen the waterfall. That's too bad.
