Took good guided tour with lots of local info on plants birds etc and were well assisted to take a dip under the waterfall and in the pool below. Slippy rocks so better with shoes on. Popular spot for locals and visitors alike.

Located about 30 minutes from St. George's, these falls are an easy 10-15 minute hike from the entrance off the main road. We opted to hire a local guide, and with six of us, plus an assortment of gear it was well worth the $EC40.00 paid for the couple of hours we spent. Super nice falls and swimming in cool... More

Our group of 6 adults and 5 children went by taxi from Cabier in the direction of Grenville. At the left turning signed Royal Mount Carmel Falls there is a bus shelter and there we met Bolo who offered his services as a guide to the falls. As it had rained heavily the night before it was very muddy on... More

The falls are in a beautiful natural setting. We arrived pretty late in the day so I didn't go swimming. The upper falls, which are just a short hike from the lower falls are picturesque and majestic. The lower falls are not much to view but the fun thing to do is take a slide down the smooth rock face... More

Following the guide book we thought we'd stop off for a brief look at the falls which are very close to the road. Unlike other falls there is no entrance fee and it's an easy walk. From the moment we stopped the car we were hassled to take a guide and couldn't get rid of him. It was somewhat intimidating... More

A large group of us went (15? people including many kids). The entrance is not clear, but it is right where the sign is, and some shops are. Akim was our guide, and he was AWESOME. He was so good with the kids, helping them (and adults!) down any slippery/muddy parts, and across the water and rocks. He was super... More

$EC30 will get you a guided tour through fruit and spice trees to the main waterfall where a power shower will blast you from above. Then trek with your guide to a lower part of the falls where you can slide on the surprisingly smooth rocks into a natural pool.

Went looking for the falls on our own and saw the sign, but didn't realize that the "common" entrance to the falls was literally at the sign itself. We drove past the sign eventually asking one of the locals "Danny" for directions. He kindly offered to take us there and so we took him up on his offer. Instead of... More

We rented a car and drove from one of the anchorages in the south, and headed first toward Grenville. We stopped to see the Mount Carmel Waterfalls. When we pulled up in the car, we were greeted by Kevin, a local guide, who offered to show us the falls. It was a good thing we did, as I'm not sure... More

We went to Mt Caramel Falls 2nd week January 2012! It's definitely one of the best highlights of our Grenada holiday. It has a very easy access, and there are locals, especially a guy called Akim that guides you. To the falls, explaining and describing very single tree. Or plant you see on your way... And there are plenty: mangos,... More
