The hike to Paria falls will take you to a beautiful beach. The walk through the forest is a nature lover's dream. And the waterfall is stunning: a blue pool of water perfect for swimming.

Make sure you set off early. Have you been exercising before? Please do. This is not a hike for the timid, although kids love it for the challenge. Either do the longer walk through the hills from Brasso Seco, or the up and down hill climb along the water;s edge from Blanchisseuse river ( one of the few " cable... More

Went there 14yrs ago! From reading recent posts, it seems that it is still the magical hike we took then. A good 2h walk, solid, but with endless breathtaking spots, and a dream bath in the crystal clear water below the fall! As mentioned by others... BE CAREFUL... You will not come back from there the same person you were... More

If you really love nature and enjoy a challenging hike the paria waterfall is a must. Great for pictures. Enjoyable trek. You can stop at paria bay and take in the wonderful atmosphere. This is my most favorite hike and one of the most beautiful wonders of my home land.

This to me is quite a challenging hike - about 7 hours to hike in and back out, not including bath time at the falls. You will see some interesting flora, some fauna you might see are Macaws, Parrots, Butterflies and some insects. Just before the falls you will meet up with some beaches and small rivers which are some... More

The Paria hike is a must. If you want to experience the true Carib, make the hike. Park by the bridge just past Blanchisseuse Beach and head out from there. Past the bridge, the road gets rough quickly, so unless you have 4WD and a strudy vehicle you don't mind banging around, just park and hike it. After a while,... More

The end justifies the means - is so true with this site I would not recommend for kids or unfit persons or anyone with injuries. I was going to say elderly folk, but my guide was a resident of the area and appeared to be a senior citizen and made the trip with ease. Make sure and wear comfortable clothes,... More

The hike to get to Paria is always quite challenging, regardless of whether it's been a hot sunny day or a typical day in the rainy season. However, when you get to the end and see the amazing cascading crystal clear water, it makes the suffering (maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit!) all the more worth it! This is a... More

To get to Paria, you must take either the three hour long journey from Brasso Seco in the heart of the Northern Range or use the spectacular coastal route from Blanchisseuse village - a trek that takes one and a half hours of sometimes challenging walking. Every moment on this popular pilgrimage is a revelation. From Brasso Seco Village you... More
