Location: St. George's, Grenada
Address: Annandale Falls
Date: Nov 2001
During our Princess Cruise, one of our ports of call was the island of Grenada. This country has many waterfalls in a tropical jungle. One of the most visited waterfalls is Annandale Falls. To get to the falls we had to walk along a trail where several people were selling local crafts and spices. We ended up buying a small basket with various spices inside. Fortunately, we did not have any trouble bringing these back through customs and into our country. We never ended up using any these spices so we cannot confirm if they were properly labelled or not.
We didn't have far to go along the path before we could hear the roar of the falls. Depending on the season the flow of the falls can vary. When we visited it looked to be at full flow. There were several local teenagers all dressed in matching shirts and offering to jump off the cliff, for a price. If we had to guess, we would say that the cliff was about 50 feet high. We decided to take one of the teens up on his offer.
The jumper reached the top and raised his arms. In the air he arched his back and held this form all the way until he disappeared into the water below. A few moments later he emerged and climbed up onto the bank eager to go again. Once was good enough for us, but you can decide how many jumps you want him to make by replaying the video below.
