Overview

Ravel into the mountains 12km northwest of Jacmel, Bassin Bleu is a combination of three cobalt-blue pools linked by waterfalls that make up one of the prettiest swimming holes in Haiti.  The three pools are Bassin Clair, Bassin Bleu and Bassin Palmiste. At the end of your experience, you will tell us which one is the nicest one. While the waters of Bassin Bleu are a delight at most times of the year, they turn a muddy brown after heavy rainfall.

Know More about this tour

Just a two-hour drive from the capital Port-au-Prince is the historic city of Jacmel. Founded as the capital of the French colony Saint-Domingue in the late 1600s, city of Jacmel is a coffee trading center. The city proudly showcases elaborate Victorian-era mansions that were rebuilt after fire destroyed most of the city in 1896. Heralded as one of the top eight Caribbean towns by Lonely Planet, Jacmel has much to offer, from mountainous waterfalls to pristinely preserved blue pools and from rich handicrafts to organic coffee.

Our first stop will be La Valle-de-Jacmel, a mountainous rural area just 56 miles southeast of Port-au-Prince. From here, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the bay of Bainet, the Caribbean Sea, and its surrounding mountains. You will tour organic coffee and cacao plantations and see how they are processed. Then, you get to try pure organic coffee and cocoa, to your hearts content.

Then we will head to Bassin Bleu, translated as blue pool. This breathtaking place where mountain waterfalls form pristine blue pools is for you to admire and to take a dip in.

These hidden pools of natural mountain-fed water are famous for their innate relaxing and rejuvenating power. You will also find local artists and farmers selling their arts, crafts, and fresh fruits.

Our last stop will be Cap Lamandou, a hotel located atop a mountain peak in Jacmel. As you get to unwind and relive the moments of this trip during lunch, you will continue to add to the memories while at Cap Lamandou. With options from authentic Haitian and Caribbean Cuisine to European and American Bistro selections, we believe that the excellent meal coupled with the panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea with keep you craving for more.
