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 tropical garden with a chain of spring-fed pools and Jacuzzi area with lounge chairs, great music, roaming iguanas, and chic tented cabanas with a St. Barth–meets–Wet 'n' Wild atmosphere; groups should consider the VIP private tree house/cabanas complete with champagne and attentive service. 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. "Treehab," a wild party at the end of every month, brings the island's best DJs; and the Garden Groove Party enlivens every Saturday night in June, July, and August.
