Martinique will inspire you with your tropical forests

The roads on the island of Martinique are called “traces”, the trails opened by colonialists to cross the island. The diversity of Martinique offers a selection of different landscapes, animals and plants. The roads combine the history of ancient plantations and the overwhelming beauty of nature has regained control of the land.

Within a mile of the city of L’Ajoupa-Bouillon, the rugged Gorges de la Falaise offers an opportunity for more brave travelers to find the wilderness of Martinique.

This is a refuge of a series of erupting waterfalls and narrow canyons perfect for swimming, walking, and play many other sports on the river. The tropical jungle attracts visitors on rocks covered with moss and brown spots and buds, through a dense canopy of trees and among the flowers of palm trees and ferns, where hummingbirds hang on their heads.

A special feature of the island that makes it famous throughout the world is the height of the inhabitants here. People on Martinique island own a “terrible” height – the male is 1.9m while the female is 1.74m. Even here, a young man under 1.8 m will be teased as “dwarf”.

In addition to a respectable height, Martinique people still have a strange custom that never bows. This custom stems from the legend of Martinique’s chief island. When he was invaded by the French and bent over to let them ride, he firmly refused and said: “Martinique must always stand straight, not bow.” This is deeply rooted in people’s minds and becomes a concept of their life.

Martinique is hailed as one of the most attractive islands of the Caribbean. This is because it is a combination of beautiful beaches stretching with clear water and rainforest rich in flora and fauna. Visitors can enjoy many great sports here such as surfing, sailing, snorkelling, kite surf, etc.

With the stunning beauty and incredible miracle, Martinique welcomes thousands of tourists every year to enjoy the famous rum, play sports on the beach and really enjoy her holiday. If you have the opportunity to visit, do not ignore this beautiful island because you know after a vacation here, you may be a few centimeters taller.
