Emerald Pool, River Tubing & Mero Beach

This Wet and Wild tour starts with a visit to the Emerald Pool, a crystal clear water pool located in the luxuriant rainforest in the heart of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park.


A 15 minute walk down a looping footpath takes you to the edge of this absolutely refreshing pool. The pool is fed by a 20-foot waterfall. Swimming in the pool is optional.On return to the reception facility you may browse the vendors arcade for local souvenirs.

Your tour then turns around and goes down the Layou Valley stopping at Mr. Nice fruit stand (closed on Saturdays) to enjoy his freshly-harvested fruits for a tip. Having left Mr. Nice, you arrive at the river’s edge within minutes, where your tubing adventure begins.

Ready, Set, Go! You hop into your river tube and drift down the Layou River enjoying the stunning scenery as you glide downstream in moderate rapids, a variety of pools, turns and narrow passages, stopping for a quick dip midway down the course. The view is stunning in the Layou Gorge and the vegetation is diverse. Your Guides happily perform their acrobatic stunts as they guide you down river whilst ensuring your complete safety. The river ride is absolutely relaxing getting to the finish point. When the ride is over you enjoy a local beer, rum punch or fruit juice and continue to the Mero black sand beach for dipping into the warm Caribbean Sea. Romance Cafe, a quaint restaurant/bar offers delicious creole menu and beach amenities. Finally, it’s the return trip back to your ship.
