We wanted to experience the rainforest by doing a long walk. We drove up to Fond St Jaques and then just kept driving (jeep necessary!). Eventually we passed a group of men and one asked if we needed a guide. He was very friendly and we agreed. He took us first up to a viewpoint of the Pitons and then down to the waterfall. It was a very long walk down the 2000ish steps. Total walk time 2 and half hours.Throughout the walk he was teaching us about local plants, trees and local life. We learnt so much about life in St Lucia. He then took us back up a different route. It was amazing and we loved the fact that no-one else was there. We had to put trust in our guide, but it turned out well. We gave him about $70 EC, a little above the going rate, but he was so great. He also did the whole walk in bare feet! Always agree a price beforehand. It is a demanding walk due to the challenge of the number of steps, so you would need to be fit to do this.
