Southern Haiti Adventure: Leaping into Bassin Bleu
Around about 20 pounds ago, I lived an incomparable southern Haiti adventure. It was there, just west of the storied city of Jacmel, where I found myself trekking through the bush, hopscotching rocks across streams, rappelling down a ravine, and finally reveling in the sanguine seclusion of Bassin Bleu.
A series of natural pools and waterfalls along the Petite Rivière de Jacmel, Bassin Bleu is renowned for the generally electric blue-green hues of the water here. (More on why I say “generally” in a future post.)
Scaling the heights to leap from caves hidden within the falls only adds to the thrills, of course.
To get in on this uncommon southern Haiti adventure, or enjoy most any aspect of the best of Haiti, you’ll want to reach out to my friends Cyril Pressoir at Tour Haiti or Pierre “Bobby” Chauvet at Agence Citadelle. Both men head the top, most trusted tour operators in the country. Even better, they’re also amazing people and good friends.
If you want me to put you in direct contact with either, drop me a line.
