Overview
This is one of the most beautiful, quiet and secluded waterfalls on Grenada. It is truly off the beaten path and is never crowded or over-run by tourists. The waterfall and pool are both quite refreshing, and are completely surrounded by natural rain forest.

Vaughn was an excellent guide! He was kind and so informative about Grenada. We had a great day with him as he hiked us around Grand Etang. The highlight was Black Rock Falls. We loved learning more about the island from him, including the wildlife, vegetation, and history. It was a relaxed tour and he was willing to change the itinerary when we saw something that interested us. We had a few tour guides over our entire trip in Grenada. He was the best out of all of them. We appreciated his down to earth style and relaxed tour.

We had a lovely trek through lush forest with Vaughan and a refreshing swim at the end of it. He is a kind, skilled and informative guide and drove with care. I would definitely recommend his tropical adventures. We found this gem with Vaughan a fantastic experience. We also learned from him about Grenada over the years.

My wife and I originally booked three hiking tours in Grenada with Tropical Adventures back in June 2020 before Grenada locked down due to the COVID pandemic. While most travel companies would have taken our money and run, Vaughan Francis kept in constant contact with us through the entirety of 2020 and allowed us to use our 2020 hike payments for our rescheduled trip in 2021. Unfortunately, we were not able to make the hikes in our 2021 trip as we were largely trapped on resort. Even when this occurred, Vaughan Francis offered a full refund. It is rare to have a tour company hold onto funds for over a year then offer a refund at the end. We were so moved by his integrity we refused the refund, and we plan on hiring him and his company at some point in the future once COVID is behind us and Grenada is completely open.

This was hands down, an amazing adventure and our favorite day of our vacation. Communication leading up to our excursion was perfect and prompt. Meeting up with Vaughan when we got off our ship was very easy. Vaughan is an excellent tour guide. Very kind, informative, and he showed us such a wonderful time. We chose to Hike Mount Qua Qua. We do a lot of hiking in NY and Maine and we couldn't think of a better way to spend our time in Grenada. The views were beautiful. The trail was quiet and definitely off the beaten path. And Vaughan made our day really special. Don't hesitate to book with this tour company. They have a wide range of tours and we will definitely book with them again on our next trip to Grenada.

We were picked up promptly by our guide Vaughan, he asked which birds we wanted to spot on our 6 hour tour. When he found out my pair of binoculars had an issue he let me borrow a pair of his. We spotted the majority of endemics in Grenada, including the rare Grenada dove. He was very personable and shared stories and many details
