My boyfriend and I took a dodgy but fun bus ride up to the entrance of the park area for 3 dollars each. As we arrived it chucked down with rain and we were soaked through - but this was a relief as the rainfrorest area is hot and clammy. We made the slippery walk down through the rainforest. It took about 45 minutes. There is a a sort of path carved through the forest that you can easily follow. Because we did it on our own we didn't feel rushed and 'lead' by a group or guide.
We made it to the falls which just took my breath away. Pictures do not do it justice. They are huge! We took a few pictures and then braved the refreshing, cool, waterfall pool whilst wearing trainers. I have to admit that I was scared and exhilarated at the same time. My heart was pounding as I tried to swim against the current of the water and you can't see the bottom of the pond so you have no idea if a scary fish is going to take a nibble. The natural force of the waterfall, cold water, noise and power, plus the lush, amzaing, Attenborough-esque forest around me was unreal..Then all of a sudden a skinny Grenadian lad in speedos and jelly shoes runs up and scales the entire waterfall wall and dives off the top, emerges from the first pool, climbs up then dives off the second fall. This just topped it off. What a day! The trek back is a little tiring but worth it. I would suggest that you do need to be a fairly active to make it. If you do one thing in Grenada then do this. You don't need a guide - just a bus fare and some old trainers you're willing to throw away after trekking and swimming in the jungle. There is parking if you have hired a car but no changing facilities so you will get a few looks whilst changing in the parking lot. A definite must do in Grenada.
