Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Any tour to the north of the island will almost certainly take you to Bloody River, where 2000 Caribbs natives were massacred by British and French forces. The river is said to have run red with blood for 3 days. Now it is just a dried up and overgrown river bed. The story in perhaps more important than what you actually see in this very short photo stop.

Local lore suggests the river ran red for three days after the slaughter of more than 2,000 indigenous people at the hands of the British and French colonial troops.

Sad testament to humanity.

I believe most of people who wrote reviews of this place were not really visiting the canyon itself. We had difficulties to find a driver to get there, we had to explain several times to different people where we want to go.
It is a beautiful nature site. You have to cross an area with high grass to get into the forest from the parking. You can not really see where to go, our driver showed us the way. After you are in the jungle it fees like you enter into a different world. The area has a unique atmosphere. You can walk alone in the silent nature and wonder on the birds passing by and play Tarzan on the hanging vines. At one point you have to climb a wooden ladder and my friend was scared of it so we turned around but it really worth the effort. I would definitely go back here again.
After rain it can be slippery, hiking shoes or hiking sandal recommended.
Count at least 1,5 hours for the visit and bring enough drinking water. It is hot and humid.

I also did a review for bloody point. The place of the massacre by the French and British of 2000 local souls. They say the blood ran along the river for 3 days.

Quick information stop on an island tour. Well maintained by the locals. Do not blink or you will miss it.

Like the reviews for Bloody Point, this is a quick informational stop on an island tour. The history is sad, but there isn't really anything to see there. Be sure to learn the history though.

Don't spend more than five minutes here. It's an important part of their history, but a sad part of their history.

Our cruise ship tour bus stopped here for us to view and take pictures. Not much to see, you can only imagine what took place, by the tales you are told.

Our tour guide stopped here to explain the reason for the rivers name, natives were brought here to be slaughtered. Not a very nice area, lots of trash and not a lot to see there. Stop, take picture and leave. Its right on the main road.

Our tour driver stopped here and told us the history of this particular site. The tale itself was very interesting, but the actual site needs to be improved in order to make it stand out more to the public. There is really no signage or markers that stand out. It is really easy to miss if one is not aware of its significance.
