He also pointed out a 20% discount on stays purchased on that day before continuing with the fact that on the 22nd will be the restarting of Night Hikes. The Hike will be to the “west” portion of the Cabrit’s National Park. “The hike is facilitated by Mr. Cyril John from Forestry Wildlife and Parks Division,” said Francis. “The last hike May 29th, we’re having a special hike this year-the Morne Diablotin Challenge.”  Teams of three will compete for the fastest total time to the summit of Morne Diablotin.
