Bassin Bleu, Jacmel

4.6
#1 of 8 in Parks in Haiti
Immerse yourself in tranquility as you jump from waterfalls and swim in cooling basins at Bassin Bleu. The rock face surrounding the waterfall features patches of lush green vegetation, providing much-needed shade during your visit, and a delightful contrast with the rich turquoise water in the basin. Make sure you book your visit in advance, as only a limited number of visitors can come per day in order to keep the attraction unspoiled. Pack your own food and drinks to enjoy a picnic in tranquil surroundings. See Bassin Bleu and all Jacmel has to offer by arranging your trip with our Jacmel trip maker website .
