Bassin Bleu, Jacmel

#1 of 10 in Parks in Haiti
Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
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.

  • Wow! An exquisite natural interactive wonder. Bright aqua pools cascade into waterfalls of rejuvenation for mind, body, soul. Highlight is the rope/rappelling down a Boulder into the Bleu. You feel.....  more »
  • Wonderful and beautiful A breathtaking landscape makes you forget the world And you filter the fat you have well if you want to start a project and you do not know what the project is sitting there...  more »
  • Your local volunteer guide is useful to reach the top of three pools, where a swim close to the waterfall is welcome and not too cool.  more »
  • Beautiful falls with tremendous, friendly guides. Wallace, Joseph, and the crew will take good care of you.
  • A simply gorgeous location near to Jacmel. It's a worthwhile trip, and once you're there, enjoy swimming in the beautiful pools.
  • I was here in mid January 2019 it was absolutely awesome makes you think your in some tropical rain forest... If I have a half a chance I would like to go there again but I'm from North East Texas so can't go there every week 😉
  • Difficult to get to but worth it in the end. Things to note: difficult to find on your own especially if you do not speak French or Creole; terrible roads; asking for directions is useless, you actually need to get a local person to show you the way and expect to pay for the service; Consider doing a Tour to Basin Blue instead; You will need a guide, arrange price before you begin the journey to the falls; wear comfortable shoes with good grip; you will be crossing water
  • Such a nice place!
