From a tourism perspective, the city itself is not particularly noteworthy, but nearby geologic features make this one of the country’s can’t miss destinations. The Cascades de Karfiguéla, also known as the...More

Rough road out, nice walk from car park to falls and then to swimming hole above them. Great views. Refreshing swim.

We visited the falls on a nice, hot, sunny afternoon in November. As it's dry season, the falls are but a trickle compared to their apparent grandeur in rainy season. We arrived at 12:30 and were the only visitors for about 2 hours until 4...More

I found my stay at Les Cascades very pleasant, though it was bit strange that part of the main building was still under construction at the time. The rooms were spacious and had views of the nicely kept pool and garden area. The staff was...More
