This isn’t so much hiking, but more about our visit to Jacmel. We had been to Jacmel before and knew where we wanted to go first….the beach! After walking for two days our feet were tired, and we were sweaty and dirty. We got a taptap to the beach and within minutes we were swimming in the cool, salty water and burying our feet in the soft sand. We spent a few hours relaxing in the shade, swimming, and eating some fresh seafood.

The next day we decided to venture out to Bassin Bleu again. Three members of our group hadn’t been so we thought it would be good to go. After an hour of wandering around we were able to find a taptap willing to take us up the mountain and then wait for us to give us a ride back down. We arrived at Bassin Bleu, took a swim, enjoyed the beauty and clean water for a while then hopped back in the taptap to return to Jacmel.

That night we took our hosts out for dinner and went to bed early (after a few rounds of Uno) to prepare for our trip home the next day.
That next morning we were able to secure a van with enough room for us all and in record time our driver got us back home where we spent the rest of the day showering and relaxing. All in all it was an amazing trip with amazing people in an amazing place.
