Worth the effort to find and walk the short trail. Was muddy when I was there so walking shoes or sneakers recommended.

This is literally in someone's backyard. We drove there so first, you look for a local to give you the tour. They're not hard to find; they're right at the intersection. They'll also let you know where to park. Trekking to Mount Carmel involves walking through lush greenery with cacao trees and a bamboo forest. It's okay to wear flip-flops... More

Wow -- I hesitate giving good reviews and hope this waterfall is the same in 20 years. When you near the intersection and a man jumps out at you, waving you down, do stop. He is there to be your guide. We might not have found the entrance on our own, let alone the second waterfall and natural slide. Another... More

Our family has been volunteering in Grenada for 8 months and for some foolish reason we never went to this site. BIG MISTAKE. We went today and it was amazing! Directions- at the junction you turn hard left and you are there. It is no more than 20 feet! There is a bar with a painting of the falls, that... More

The last hurricane that hit devasted the water falls area and no one has cleaned this area up. Watch out for pan-handlers asking for money. Its free to walk down to falls area. Wear hiking boots when you do go...

If you are tired of pushy guides and threats of vandalism to your parked car, there is a simple way around it. When you are just about to the falls parking, you will need to make a hard right to go down to the parking. Just as you are about to make the right, if you look, there is a... More

This fall is beautiful; however, it can be a difficult walk. I found it a little disappointing for the effort it took to reach. Also, you really need a guide to lead you to this location.

We had a lovely family morning at Mt Carmel waterfalls (two adults, a 15 yo and 7 yo) on our way to the north of the island. They are v accessible, with a pleasant and undemanding (15 min) walk to the waterfalls. The waterfalls are stunning, and the lower “slides” such fun for all the family. We are regular visitors...

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.
