Raymond took us around the island. We found him through the Port Louis Marina and he took us to all the best places. I work on a yacht and he personally escorted me to the market which was the most amazing place. The meat and fish are so fresh it is ridiculous! We hiked the 7 Sisters waterfall which was gorgeous and ate at the tiny restaurant across from the marina (can't remember the name..Philip's?) Raymond got us in (no small feat!) and WHAT an experience! You don't order -he-the owner-a VERY sassy man brings you whatever he feels like and it is all local, fresh and delicious! The food everywhere (as well as everything else here) is cheap and really great! We bought a massive meal on the street (ribs/chicken with rice, mac and cheese, vegetables and sea moss shake) for $2 US. Great local artist and a beautiful harbor. Raymond is the man and he intuitively knew where we wanted to go to get the real experience. We used 2 other cab drivers before we met Raymond and they ripped us off royally although they all gave us the history of the island. Definitely skip the cruise ship promenade. 2 or 3 blocks back are the market stalls with much better and more interesting stuff. report a problem
