Pretty good place. $60TTD entry, 10 minutes walk later you are at the waterfall!... It is 3 steps and you can hike up to each level. However there is nothing spectacular about it. I would have rather spent the time lying on Englishman's bay rather than going here...

We actually hired a local guide at the reception area for a small fee who wears an official badge. Please support them as this is how they earn their living. It was well worth the money as she explained about the local trees and fauna as we walked along and was very friendly. Be aware as you enter from the... More

This was a great experience, we didn't have a guide, just walked through. Make sure you climb to the top of the waterfall if you are feeling adventurous!

The Argyle waterfall is spectacular - be prepared to take (and enjoy) a swim or shower! Easy to walk to the bottom stage of the three stage waterfall and very enjoyable. Much harder to climb to stage two and three but well worth the effort.

After a nice 1 mile walk through the rain forest you are rewarded with a beautiful three tiered waterfall. You can swim in each tier and if you go during a non-touristy time of year you may get the entire waterfall to yourself. I had a great time with friends on this hike, definitely worth the cab ride and the... More

Our guide Alison was a mine of information about local flora and fauna and a great laugh.. And what a marvellous waterfall - so many tiers and clear cool water - a heavenly swim after a hot trek through the rainforest!

Tall trees, bird and cricket sounds, water falling ... a great place to explore. It is not too far or too long a walk. The guides are very good. there are facilities. I purchased earrings and some chocolate balls to take home. Pleased with our visit! It might be slippery on a rainy day. the water in the pool under... More

The first level is reached by a nice walk with a little clamber over rocks to reach the pool beneath the waterfall. The second and third levels involve a steeper climb. We did not have a guide nor were we offered one which was fine. It may be that if you trek to the higher levels a guide may be... More

This is a really nice walk to a quite large waterfall. The guide is not optional but is included in the entry fee for foreigners. We didn't like the guides trying to sell us cocoa and trying to get a tip.
