The fees charged by the park have gone up to $50US per person. That's about twice what we expected and we almost walked. But we were there and it's not easy to get to and it included a guide, so we choked and forked over...More

On a catamaran shore excursion arranged through Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Silhouette, we sailed down the western side...More

I didn't even see anyone offering to guide a climb up Petit although there must be. I'd worry a bit about the time. If you are staying on the island, it likely would be a tight fit to get there, do the climb and get back to... More
I didn't even see anyone offering to guide a climb up Petit although there must be. I'd worry a bit about the time. If you are staying on the island, it likely would be a tight fit to get there, do the climb and get back to a ship prior to departure.
