Leave your flip flops behind for this tour, as you’ll be trekking through Grenada’s Grand Etang National Park. The forest-covered park is home to a huge crater lake, volcano-like peaks and the mona monkey. The day starts with a scenic drive up winding mountain roads. Once you’ve reached the top – 1,900 feet above sea level – you’ll get sweeping vistas of the south of the island and Grand Etang Lake, formed by an extinct volcano. After, you’ll take to the forest floor for a short trek through cocoa, nutmeg and fruit plantations, towards Bamboo Fall. It’s the last in a series of waterfalls that you’ll pass along the way and, once you’ve reached it, there’ll be time to cool off with a dip in its refreshing waters. Afterwards, you’ll be treated to a freshly-squeezed fruit juice before the bus heads back to the port.
You’ll need a suitable pair of walking shoes for this trip, and the trail might be muddy if it has been raining. Don’t forget to bring your swimwear and a towel, if you want to swim in the waterfalls.
