Route de la trace to Morne Rouge – A TOURIST IN THE CARIBBEAN

Route de la trace to Morne Rouge

The Route del la trace is a beautiful scenic drive going through lush green forests of tall fern trees, anthurium covered hillsides, amidst thick clumps of roadside bamboo.  Heading North from Fort de France to La Morne Rouge, you will pass some of the most interesting places on the island. The road follows a route cut by the Jesuits in the 17th century, and the locals’ tale of this account is that the Jesuits fondness for rum, accounts for the twisting nature of the road.  The most fascinating part of the drive is the miles and miles of forests and heliconias, extraordinary tall bamboo, palms, and other deep forest plants. There are many different trails along the main roadway and some very interesting things to see and history to learn. It is a great drive into the heart of the island.
