I was a little worried about doing this based on the reviews. I'm 54 with arthritis, but in good shape generally and a strong swimmer. You need to wear your bathing suit and something sturdy on your feet, that can get wet. This is not...More

I'm sure if we had actually seen the gorge, we would have given it a "5"! So here is my advice: CALL FIRST. Call the Restaurant de la Cascade at 0596 53 35 61 and make sure the gorge is open. We drove two hours...More

A "must do" in Martinique. Totally worth it!!! Beautiful foliage and amazing scenery. Guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Make sure to pack your good grip water shoes, swimsuit and waterproof camera.

This is an absolute must for anybody fond of nature. You walk 15 min down to a river, there a guide leads you thru a walk in the river up to a fantastic waterfall. The best is the actual walk/climb in the river, lots of...More

We came across Les Gorges after talking to some people we met after hiking Mt. Pelee. They had just come from Les Gorges de la Falaise and recommended it to us. We went there the next day. It was kinda hard to find - not...More
