Bassin Bleu is a definitely beautiful place. Several lakes following one another and crowned by the largest one with a rock in its middle and surrounded with a huge wall releasing a waterfall. Everything is nice..., but the service sucks. We've got there with our driver. At the foot of the mountain she was told by the lockal bike drivers... More

Beautiful place with nice, cool water to swim. You will hike around 20 min to get there. There are other "Bassins" on the way but make sure you go all the way to Bassin Bleu. The last part of the trek you must go down a rope but it's easy because steps have been carved into the rock and it's... More

My family went there, we had a good time. We were a bit nervous about the rope, but it was fine. The tour guys were very helpful and knowledgeable about the place. Overall, it's a beautiful place. Please bring comfortable shoes with good grip, cause u will b climbing on wet rocks.

Beautiful waterfalls and blue pools. Swimming in the basin to the waterfall is amazing and you can climb up underneath the falls, letting the water slash down on you. The guides are friendly and helpful making sure you get the whole experience. A true gem!

First off you need a good 4x4 to get there as the roads represent a real challenge but once you get there it really worth it. I've visited most of the southern part of Haïti and that was my Coup de coeur !!!!

Hotel organized a driver/guide - it's a short walk more than a hike to Bassin Bleu. We were the only people there, swam in the upper basin for half an hour - an otherworldly experience.

This is an amazing nature stop, just 30 minutes from downtown Jacmel. Getting there is rough, so expect to be rattled on the back of a dirt bike for most of the ride. Choose your transportation and guide carefully as you will be way off the beaten path and scammers abound. The Bassin Bleu itself is amazing! Waterfalls and various... More

My husband and I took our 3 children to visit Bassin Bleu. We made arrangements with Sadrac ahead of time. Sadrac was very kind, helpful and trustworthy. We felt safe with Sadrac and he is great with kids. We took life jackets for the 4 and 5 year olds because the water is really deep. The hike is beautiful and... More
