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.

This was a 45 minute drive from our hotel on Turtle Beach. An easy hike to the first pool but do not stop there. To the right of the first pool is a path that goes straight up. Climb, hang on to trees and vines and move your way up. The second area is waterfalls you can stand under. Keep... More

It is a 15 minutes walk though a lovely forest full of different types of exotic trees (silkwood, bamboo, wildplum and all the others whose names I have forgotten but will look up) with the opportunity to swimm in the pools under the cascades. It was not exactly sunny the morning I went and it had rained the night before.... More

This waterfall is hard to get to for older people. The trail is being worked on and new building is being built. This will be fun in the future. The cost was 10 dollars to view

There was a three tiered waterfall nestled among the flora. Yes, there is an admission price, and we had a local guide to point out the fauna. After the rain and the mud, a much needed swim was available in the pools below the falls. The rocks may be slippery, so wear shoes with traction through the muck. A clean... More

The Argyle waterfalls have been left in their natural state,hence there is a bit of a muddy,stoney Walk through the forest until you reach the falls. There are much larger slippery rocks to negotiate as you get closer to the falls,which I understand are not at all accessible in certain wet seasons. There is a steep muddy path to climb... More

It's a bit pricey at $50TT each, but it is only a short walk to a very nice 3 tiered waterfall. Much better than we expected.

Not the most spectacular of waterfalls but definately worth the visit. From the "ticket office" to the falls is a walk (not to strenuous) to the actual falls through the rain forest - takes about 20 minutes. Entrance fee about £6.00 per adult. No guide needed as the path is well walked and therefore defined. Some trees show useful information... More

I was told that we would be crossing a "few small rivers" and it's a nice walk. Right...about that. The entire walk, if you can call it that, was about 45 minutes each way. You begin your dream by getting stuck in a sea of mud until you reach the water. THEN, you have to walk through river after river... More
