Bassin Bleu is both picturesque and exciting. You can just swim in the pools or you can climb up and jump / dive off of the surrounding rocks. An adventure from beginning `til end. It takes a while to get there if you decide to hike, but it is all worth it. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Once you get there, it is a good idea to hire a guide, because they know their way more easily. I truly recommend it

6. Saut Mathurine, Les Cayes

Saut Mathurine, Les Cayes

One of Haiti’s most pleasing tourist attractions is a natural feature, Saut Mathurine waterfalls near Camp Perrin, Haiti. These waterfalls are the biggest in Haiti. Many consider St. Mathurine waterfalls one of the finest natural wonders in the Caribbean region. Cascading out of the La Selle Mountains, Saut Mathurine is a spectacular waterfall surrounded by lush vegetation. Around the falls and along the trail leading to the waterfalls, various varieties of flowers, birds, and plants add to the natural beauty and enjoyment of this area. The falls, dropping around ninety feet and spreading over one hundred feet wide, are a roaring show of the power of water. The power of the water has created a perfect swimming hole. Most locals and travelers enjoy climbing to the brink of the falls and jumping into the pool of greenish-blue water
