Add To Plan

Trek through a nearby forest to three beautiful cascades, ending with the opportunity to swim in the pool of the last cascade and later, enjoy a sampling of indigenous Garifuna dishes.

After tendering to the pier, you will enjoy a short drive to the Rio Grande Cascades. To reach the cascades, you will hike along a trail that gently winds through the lush vegetation. Besides being lovely to behold, the cascades are wonderfully relaxing as the sound of the rushing water is almost hypnotic.

You will pause long enough at the first two cascades for photos before continuing on to the third cascade, which ends in a lovely pool that is perfect for swimming. Expect the water to be refreshingly cool and clear, and considering the idyllic setting you can’t help but feel completely at ease.

There is no rush to continue on, so you will have time to simply sit on the rocks and soak up the sun and tranquil atmosphere. The plant life is mostly indigenous and ranges from stands of towering trees to splashes of colorful flowers. You may even spot some tropical birds or at least hear them squawking from within the dense foliage.

Afterwards, you will walk to the on-site restaurant and be treated to a sampling of some traditional Garifuna food. The Garifuna are descents of the Carib, Arawak and West African people, and their cuisine often relies on cassava, plantains and fish. Following this food sampling, you will re-board your transportation and return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximate 1-hour of moderate to strenuous walking that includes negotiating natural and uneven surfaces. The path can become slippery when wet.
