The way to the sight is a dirt road, you'll need an off-roader to get there. Admission fee is 250 HTG for tourists and 50 HTG for locals. If you have time and a good vehicle, try another path and walk there from the western side. You'll have a splendid view and some hiking exercice.

This is a wonderful remote spot and somewhat hidden gem in Haiti. We were fortunate to visit with a resident of Hinche who knows the area well and knew to be prepared for all of the "helpers" there who wanted to give us private tours (for a small fee of course). We were there on a weekday and had the cool refreshing waters practically to ourselves. I chose not to visit the "voodoo caves" although it was an option. There were restrooms available and we brought our own packed lunch-which I would also advise. Our afternoon at Bassin Zim was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Haiti.

We hiked steep trails to get to the falls, I think the only way you can get there. We had to cross a stream also: some fell in so be prepared to get wet. Water shoes would be best. You are able to take a dip at the bottom pool by just walking in to the water. Some of our party hiked up to see some of the upper pools and a couple of them jumped in (using the local guides--expect to pay for their services; it's hard to get down after jumping without them!) There are also caves in the area to explore. Again, expect to tip your guides. We passed on the caves this trip as we were told there were wasps, but some of our party has done the caves in the past. I recommend bringing small bills to tip your helpers. Your shoes, socks, and/or hats are also appreciated tips! (The "guides" are generally local children, but they were helpful, especially with those who jumped. Couldn't have done without the kids' help!)
