Caribbean Hiking in Rainforests

Discover Caribbean hiking trails, lush rainforests, exotic wildlife & flora

Caribbean hiking in rainforests is an activity all visitors to the Caribbean should experience, at least once… to discover the lush landscapes and tropical flora, and to listen to the sounds of the Caribbean’s exotic birds and tropics – all within a few miles of the alluring beaches

The Caribbean is not all about lazing around on the beautiful beaches, sipping rum punches and getting a suntan, so while you’re on your Caribbean vacation why not discover the cool and lush dense interior of the islands – the rainforests. Many of the islands are blessed with verdant rainforests which offer a range of hiking trails from easy strolls to strenuous hikes. So take a Caribbean rainforest hike… it won’t take you long to realise that the rainforests are just as beautiful as the beaches.

You’ll find exhilarating Caribbean hiking trails on many islands in the region. If you are visiting St Lucia, and you are quite fit, hire a guide and hike up the Gros Piton, the climb is steep but you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views of the island of St Lucia.

Take a serious look at the lush volcanic island of Dominica, a great Caribbean hiking island as well as adventure activities. If you like serious trekking then Dominica could be for you, particularly if your passion is long distance trekking. You’ll find a hiking trail that runs the whole length of the island, through thick rainforest and along precipitous ridges. It’s the 115-mile long Waitukubuli National Trail.
