Beautiful swimming spot and the people at the shop were very kind and helpful! Worth your time for a visit and the homemade ice cream is to die for.

This is my second visit to Argyle and the trails to waterfall was an easy walk. Along the trail there is lush vegetation, and you can see birds, butterflies and the occasional reptiles. The trees were labelled, though the quality of the labeling could be improved to cater the biologist/botanist among us and the layperson. The entry fee is TT$50... More

I visited Argyle Falls as a part of an all day tour by car of Tobago. The island itself is beautiful and the roads and driving a challenge in having steel nerves. The falls are a must see. It's only s short 15 minute hike from the entrance. Passing impressive cotton silk trees and monstrous bamboo. Getting close you came... More

Our group very much enjoyed the short trek to Argyle Falls. It was fun to be a bit in the jungle and learn a little about local flora and fauna. The falls weren't large, but very picturesque and pleasant. At the very top of the falls we watched hummingbirds visit overhanging flowers and enjoyed the cool mists and pools. We... More

Beautiful waterfall with several levels in which you can swim in. It is a short walk (10-15 min) to the waterfall and you will see indigenous plants and trees, we even saw a snake in a bamboo. When at the base of the waterfall you have to climb up a narrow trail to reach the top of the waterfall. 6... More

An easy walk just on the outskirts of Roxborough town, adjacent to the Cocoa plantation. A 15 minute easy walk takes you to a set of 3-tiered waterfalls, with the option to hike up to higher levels. The pools are deep enough to swim, however the water is quite cold. There is a small bar and snackshop at the entrance.

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.
