Beyond Blue Basin Waterfall in Diego Martin – Coffin Hole, Tsou Falls

Last week Sunday, my friends and I embarked on a journey to see what there is beyond the well known, Blue Basin Waterfall in Diego Martin๐Ÿ’ฆ. We wanted to see the infamous Coffin Hole and Tsou Falls which we had seen in videos and pictures online and we were not disappointed๐Ÿ˜Š. Who would have thought that there was so much to admire behind the already stunning Blue Basin Waterfall? I still can’t get over it ๐Ÿ˜ฒ. How is there all of this behind here? Has this been here all the time? Lol๐Ÿคฃ

This hike was short and a bit challenging but an all around adventure. I was a bit scared walking along the narrow pathway at the edge of the waterfall with a shear drop on one end and the mountainside on the other ๐Ÿ˜ง and I was literally crawling at times as the trail was slippery and also very narrow at points. You even needed rope at times to help you climb to the top of some of the rocks. I hope my mom does not read this, she will not be impressed. Anyways, thank God, it really isn’t a long hike at all and we made it to the first spot, White Hole in about 10 – 15 minutes and although it was hard, it was worth it ๐Ÿ˜Š.

White Hole? If this is incorrect, let me know. I have heard some persons say that this is what it is called.

The second spot along the way was the famous Coffin Holeโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆ. This was literally a hole with sapphire blue water, what more can I say? It was as beautiful as I expected and although we did not go in this time, I would love to bathe in this small pool. I have heard that it is extremely deep, so if you decide to bathe, be careful as it is even deeper than you think ๐Ÿ‘€.

As you continue along the trail ๐ŸŒฟ, you have some fantastic views and chances are you will meet very few people along the way or even no one at all. Eventually, after climbing over some rocks, we made it to Tsou Falls๐Ÿ’ง. Tsou falls is a tall waterfall with a small pool at the base with a stunning rock formation at the side. This was my final stop, however, my husband and our friend ventured to the top of Tsou Falls using some rope that was to the right of the waterfall. I was later told that although there are some further pools higher up, Tsou falls is the last spot that is worth the trek.

In closing, I will say that this hike is not for the faint of heart or someone who is deftly afraid of heights, if you are, just chill at the bottom by Blue Basin, it really is lovely there๐Ÿฅฐ. Tsou Falls and Coffin Hole are very pretty spots but you need to be very careful on this trail and take it one step at a time, but you will make it๐Ÿ™. Sit down if you have to as you try to get your footing right. Additionally, this is not somewhere that you should go exploring on your own, I suggest you go with a group and a guide who knows where the trails ๐ŸŒฑ are.

Have you been beyond Blue Basin Falls, Coffin Hole or Tsou Falls before? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š

Much Love
