My wife & I walked to the Second Chute (waterfall) on our week-long visit in Guadeloupe and would highly recommend this. It was raining lightly but we didn't mind. The path to the second falls was incredibly well built and maintained - stone and wooden...More

A must see and do in Basse Terre. We only hike to the second chutes du Carbet. We did not have enough time for the other nor the right shoes. It was beautiful.

We visited this after hiking la souffriere and though our legs were tired it was worth the walk! There was plenty of parking, although the drive to the parking area was adventurous - windy and narrow. When we arrived we were charged $2.50 per person...More

We decided to picnic there on the day of our arrival in Guadeloupe so as not to turn up at our rented villa too early. From the car park it's a 90-minute return trip to the waterfall, through a rainforest, along a reasonably well maintained...More

Great parking area after a cool drive to reach the parking area. Excellent pathway to reach near the bottom of the waterfall. About a 30 minute, fairly easy stroll.

I would say this was certainly a difficult and certainly challenging hike. Just a few things to note and consider, finding the entrance was difficult as the sign was hard to find, and once you are on the trail, there's directions/signs whatsoever.

If you want a good hike in some pretty good rain forest conditions then this is a good attraction to come to and is well worth the very small entrance fee. If you are doing anything other than the nearest waterfall then come prepared -...More

We visited 1st and 2nd waterfalls. #2 is easily reached from the parking area (about 20 minutes along a very good route) - however, it is not so magnificent view, because the best spot has been closed after the 2004 landslide. The hike up to...More

The higher falls are accessed through the signposted national park entrance for a small fee, there is a good view from the platform above the entrance for those who cannot walk far, interesting to reflect that C Columbus saw these falls from the sea and...More

Heard the chutes are beautiful, but when we got there it was raining. The chutes should be visible from a viewing platform, but were just a blur. 20 minute walk each way moderate activity level to see the closer chute. Still couldn't fully appreciate it...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is Les chutes du Carbett part way up La Soufiere? Or is it just nearby? We've pretty much decided La Soufriere is too strenuous for us (old and fat) but Les chutes du Carbett seems to be a good option. I just can't figure out where it is.

Hi Sandy, there are no easiest waterfalls staying by Grand Anse. You can may be try la 'Cascade aux Ecrevisses' but you will need to drive. Take care F F

What is the entrance fee for the Carbet Falls and do you get to see all of the falls for the entrance fee. What time does it open and close for the day. Is it open on weekends as well.
