    I convinced my parents to take me to Bassin Bleu seven years ago after seeing pictures of this beautiful place in calendars. At the time a four wheel drive car was recommended to access the place. I remember walking and hiking for a few minutes with the locals as guides before finally getting to the famous spot. It was great to hear from my guide a little history of the place. I was told that a foreigner once fell in love with the place and decided to build a fortune house near the area. It was more like a shelter in my opinion.

    I was happy to finally be in this place, but left a few minutes after swimming a little. I could have had more fun but the fact that the people of the area told me stories, that i am now realizing were not necessarily true, changed my experience.

    First of all i was scared of diving from the top because i was told that some people jumped and never came back. I was told a lot of stories that are all related to how magic caused the death of some visitors.

    The next time i go to Jacmel will definitely visit this place again and try to have a better experience. I am curious to see if there is any positive change made by the ministry of tourism.

    All I have to say is “Awesome”. Water is cold and refreshing. The guides are great.

    ( http://www.manmanpemba.com/tuesday-1-3-5-may-1st-devan-wardwell-mountain-biker-from-st-marc/ ) This waterfall and swimming hole is the stuff of Haitian legend, purportedly harboring mermaids at its depths. The Basin is difficult to get to, but it starts with a great hike, some rock scrambles and when you finally arrive at the pools you’ll be glad you made the effort.
