Fodor's Review

Halfway up the road to Pic du Paradis is a peaceful 150-acre private nature preserve, opened to the public in 1999 by American expat B.J. Welch. There are trail maps, so you can hike on your own or hire a guide. Marked trails traverse native forest with tamarind, gum, mango, and mahogany trees. With luck you can see a greenback monkey. L'Eau Lounge is a lovely spring-fed pool and Jacuzzi area with lounge chairs, great music, and chic tented cabanas with a St. Barth–meets–Wet 'n' Wild atmosphere; groups should consider the VIP package. A delicious, healthy treetop lunch or dinner can be had at Hidden Forest Café and if you are brave—and over 4 feet 5 inches tall—you can try soaring over trees on one of the longest zip lines in the Western Hemisphere. There is a mild version, but people love the extreme one.
