    Beautiful lush gardens. Very clean with signs along the walking tour to inform you of the plants The falls are not far and it’s an easy walk
    Took us about 90 minutes to do a self tour. Go early to avoid the buses and crowds.

    This is tour is definitely a must-do in St. Lucia!!! It entailed an easy trek through lush rainforest, a visit to the estate’s farm where a huge variety of fruits and vegetables are grown, and LOTS of bird life including ALL of St. Lucia’s endemic species!!! Just some of the highlights of the forest itself include the spectacular tree ferns which reach the top of the rainforest’s canopy, the tallest Heliconias i’ve ever seen, lots of bromeliads, and several native palms. Since the estate is roughly 2000ft above sea level, the weather was refreshingly cool (but not at all cold/chilly!!!) and breezy. My guide Slyvanus gave me several tasty fruits/veggies to sample from the farm including Guava, Cucumber, and Coconut. He also provided plenty of refreshments throughout the tour, including a delicious and ice-cold guava juice and coconut water right out of the nut!!!. The birdwatching was simply incredible and since I’ve taken many birdwatching tours all over the world, I don’t say that lightly! I can’t even remember the names of all the birds I saw, but Slyvanus was extremely knowledgeable about each species we encountered and his ability to spot even the tiniest hummingbirds in dense foliage seems downright miraculous! Just some of the birds we saw include the aptly-named Trembler, several Thrashers, and all the hummingbirds types native to the island. Last but not least…I saw St Lucian Parrots about 5 times and seeing a male and female flying over the rainforest valley was definitely a peak experience in my life!!!. Sadly…I was unable to capture any decent pic/vids of the birds since the only camera I had is the one on my iphone and just because i’m a poor photographer! Finally…I can’t say enough about Slyvanus! He’s simply a delightful fellow and I already felt like he was a close friend a few minutes after meeting him! His knowledge of the flora and fauna is nothing short of encyclopedic! He showed me all the medicinal plants the St. Lucians have been using to treat countless countless conditions for hundreds of years.The tour was about 3 hours in total and with a guide as knowledgeable and amiable as Slyvanus, every second of it felt like a great adventure and i’ll definitely do it again when I return to St. Lucia!

    We went at about 5pm which meant we had the place almost to ourselves. Natural sulphur springs quite an experience. Also worth walking up the hill a bit to get a great view of some of the other areas

    My wife & went to St Lucia in 2004 the first time, saw the Pitons from a booze cruise, & I thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be wonderful to climb one of those beautiful peaks?" Never did back then.

    Come the Pandemic.

    We wrangled a trip to St Lucia in December, 2020. Decided to try climbing the Gros Piton. We were staying at Sandals, got a ride to the base from Danny Boy the taxi man. We were guided to the top by Corrine, one of the Parks Service guides. It was great. Big steps on a trail cut by the English in the 1700's. The view was impeccable, indescribable. Couldn't believe we did it.

    April, 2021. Back in St Lucia again. Saw a sign for Mervin the Mountain Goat the last time we were there. Called him. He guided us up the Petit Piton. It was fantastic! He is a wonder. He must climb this thing twice a day. The greatest thing about it is its beauty. If you're going to the Lesser Antilles to climb (You're Silly), this is the place to be, and Mervin is the one to lead you. You will not be disappointed. About 400 feet from the top, he offered me (I am at an advanced age) an unparalleled viewpoint to turn back. I stayed with him and reached the summit. After coming down, we stopped in Soufriere for a nice adult beverage. He offered a trip to the Soufriere Hot Springs, but we declined, having been there in 2004, besides, we live in Wyoming, close enough to Yellowstone. Great trip.

    2022. Mervin & Chad guided us up Mt Gimie, highest point in St Lucia. It was pristine jungle climbing, primary tool was a machete. It was unbelievably beautiful, with a view of the entire island. We could even see Piton Fleur to the North, not to mention the main Pitons to our South. Nothing compares to these experiences.

    2023: She's not climbing this year. I surrender. She was a good sport!

    2024: She says I can go climbing this year! Yay! Maybe I can get this 64-year-old body up the Petit one more time...

    Mervin Heliodore. Look him up on WhatsApp. He will optimize your island climbing experience. A good man.

    Our day with Paul was the highlight of our stay in St. Lucia! We ate delicious, traditionally prepared food, had a tour of the farm and went to a beautiful beach. Paul and his cousin Curvie are wonderful hosts and lovely people. Highly highly recommend!

    The cost of entry is $50 USD per person. In addition you are required to get a guide, who they inform you work primarily for tips. Walking sticks are $5 USD if you want one.

    The hike itself was very difficult. Very steep and big rocks. Felt like bouldering at times. View at the top was a bit underwhelming.

    The place is lovely we didn't want to leave, but we came back only to realize that our vehicle was broken into and we lost everything ( our money,change of clothes,ID cards, bank cards and even our cooler of drinks .we were told this is not the first time this has happened.so please don't leave any valuables in your car. All in all the the place is wonderful but needs security for persons vehicle.

    Glad we arrived early to do a self-guided walk through the lovely botanical garden. We had a detailed explanation of the island plant life on the Tet Paul hike we did earlier the same day and didn’t need to hear it again. The highlight of the gardens is the waterfall photo op. There’s a steady stream of tour groups, but everyone manages to get the photo with the help of the patient guides. No swimming, but you can buy a ticket to get in a tub of volcanic water nearby. I’d recommend swimming at Piton Falls instead.

    Highlight of our trip! This waterfall is massive secluded and gorgeous. Added bonus was they will do the mud on you at the end if you’d like. Our guide Tim was phenomenal. He explained all the wildlife and their uses as we went. It was an incredibly interesting walk. About 0.8 miles each way according to my watch. Took us right at 2 hours. 10/10 recommend. Also this doesn’t have the awful smell the sulfur springs have. This waterfall is not hot like the hot springs though. So it is a different experience. This one being private made the pictures much more fun.

    A short walk down to several mineral pools surrounded by lush tropical canopy. A warm mineral waterfall that you can stand under is fairly impressive. It was a nice soak early in the morning when there was nobody there but would be hard to get a space later in the day as tours fill up. My only complaint is that they couldn't make change for 50 EC and I paid a lot more than the posted rate as such. Worth checking out though.

    While the Soufriere Marine Management Area was not spectacular. I have been to sulfur springs that were much larger and more gtand..but...we were on the island and this is one of the main tourist spots. It was still a lot of fun and an experience. I would say GO FOR It!

    Beautiful waterfall and cold water that was refreshing on a very hot day touring in Saint Lucia. Enjoyed a dip under the fall!
