Despite fears that this would be a bit of a trek and that we would need wellies, we found it relatively easy to get to the waterfall. We saw plenty of wildlife along the way and we're no experts but they were easy to spot. We only went as far as the first tier as the climb to the next... More

I did this 'hike' while on crutches, so it's doable at any age. Only the final bit has some rocks that can get slippery. It has a T$60 entry fee. The waterfall was pleasant to dive in and fun too. swimmers be warned, it gets deep very quickly.

It was a nice easy 10 minute walk through the rainforest to the cascading waterfall. There were many different tiers your could climb to that were more difficult to get up to. we chose to stop at the first tier and swim in the clear, refreshing pool of water. Worth the trip.

Here you are invited to treat yourself to a special spa experience. It's worth to climb up the little hill and discover the little paradise.

There is not much to dislike about this waterfall. Nestled within the luscious tropical rainforest on the windward side of the island, the waterfall is reminiscent of an ideal picturesque image of how one would imagine an island waterfall to be. Except that its even way better. Truthfully, I could not find one thing to dislike about this beautiful waterfall...... More

My wife, 5 year old son and I took the trip to Roxborough in February 2015. The drive from lowlands took about 45 minutes with some winding roads but was not too bad. the fee is 50TTD (~7.65USD) for adults and 25TTD for kids 5-12 years old. This is simply for access to the falls and did not include any... More

The walk to the falls was really nice, and the cool waters were so pleasant! You can hike to the top pools (rope provided in places where it might be slippery) and stand right under the waterfalls. Really enjoyable thing to do on your vacation, we saw quite a few mot-mots on our way back. Just be careful, just as... More

This was another amazing part of Tobago, we hiked to this beautiful Waterfall and were able to swim in the refreshing cool fresh pool at the bottom of the waterfall. All the guides were fun, friendly and after our hike we sat around and talked and laughed. I came away with the nut of a cocco tree, smells just like... More

Nice little hike to this pleasant waterfall. Great for a picnic and a dip. Best way to get there is by rental car as public transport is sparse. Shady little spot with lots of bamboo groves. Beautiful.
