Swim in the cool waters underneath Cascade aux Ecrevisses. The waterfall itself is pleasant, but small and not particularly noteworthy. However, the pool below is rarely crowded, and swimming in the cool waters amid the sights and sounds of the rainforest can be a surreal experience. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, you can jump off the nearby rock faces into the pool, but watch your step on the slippery rocks. After your swim, follow a nearby footpath to reach a quiet picnic area next to the river, where you can dry off and relax. Using our international travel planner, Parc National attractions like Cascade aux Ecrevisses can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Cascade aux Ecrevisses reviews
Nice waterfall but very touristy. If you're there it's worth the 700m path walk just to have a look but a turn around to visit it is not necessary if you're a trekker walker. Many other much nicer waterfalls are worth the walk to reach them out and enjoy
A 4-5 minute paved walk from the parking lot, along side lush vegetation. The waterfall has a pool that you can swim in. It's a small area with a lot of tourists, we saw the first bus arrive here 8.30am so if you can, be early and you have the place to yourself.
