Chosen for its accessibility, this is not the most spectacilar fall, but a pleasant visit nonetheless.
A perfect day out. The people of Grenada are some of the nicest in the Caribbean. It is also one of the nicest islands and this gives you a great look at day to day life as well as scenery. One of our best trips from 6 weeks in the Caribbean
Grenada is beautiful, national park very nice, when we arrived someone was waiting for us, our guide was smart, and knowledgeable about everything. But he was not particularly friendly . We got the feeling he did not want to be doing this or some how we had offended him. If we did , we're sorry. We still enjoyed the Experience, the beauty of the island, and the park. The stop at the waterfall was a highlight. The tour was worth it I would recommend it if you want to do something outside, walk /hike in the rainforest was great. And we did see monkey's!
Doing what: Grand Etang National Park Tour
This was great! We were lucky, it was just me and a friend so we were able to go out at our pace. Our guide was very knowledgeable and keen to share his knowledge with us. There were some tricky bits to negotiate but this is very doable. In fact, if it was a longer, that would have suited us and got 5*.
Our personal guide, Davidson, courteous, friendly and informative, drove my wife and I to the Rainforest and took us through a section which involved a fairly long and steepish descent to a large and impressive waterfall where a local young man entertained us by diving from the top into the pool below. At this stage we were virtually on our own. As we returned we came across a tour from a cruise ship, possibly 100+ people descending the same (narrow) path (which was wet and slippery), apart from slowing us up, it was not a major problem. However, the viewing area by the waterfall was not that large, so we were glad we got away before this large number of people arrived, it would have been very crowded! The forest itself was attractive and Davidson pointed out one or two features of interest and was always willing to answer questions. A drink was provided on return to our transport. An enjoyable half day tour, a little challenging due to the wet ground but you can't expect anything else in a Rainforest! It would be worth trying to find out if large (cruise) parties are taking this trip when you intend to go to avoid a very crowded excursion!
Although we didn't see any rainforest animals on our tour, the flora was amazing and the waterfalls were as beautiful to behold as the pools were to swim in. Our guide, Tony, was knowledgeable about both the flora and fauna, as well as Grenadan history. He stopped frequently during our hike to point our specific flowers and trees, and on the drive to Grand Etang Park he stopped several times along the road to point out things we would have missed on our own, such as a rainbow eucalyptus tree, and to allow us to take photos of sites such as the harbor in St. George. The hike was not overly difficult, especially using a walking stick, but part of the path was steep and you had to be careful there. Tony stopped several times on the way back to allow me to catch my breath (I'm 59 and not in the best of shape!), and he lent a hand when I needed it. We ended our hike muddy and tired, but thoroughly enthralled with our rainforest trek!
