This is a great waterfall set in a park. Get a proper guide from the building where you buy your ticket (not an unofficial 'guide' hanging round the road entrance) and you will learn a lot too. You can just look, go for a swim in the bottom pool or climb to the next levels if your feeling more energetic.... More

Argyle is a true tourist attraction one of a rear kind of waterfalls in the caribbean, it offers the adventurous traveler the opportunity to just sit and stare at its rear beauty and height with different amount of waters gushing down according to the season. In the dry season it offers a place to climb with very little streams of... More

Although the falls themselves aren't exactly spectacular, the walk to them with a knowledgeable guide was a lot of fun, and bathing in the falls was popular with younger members of our party. Everybody said, "I wish we'd stayed longer"

It's very very disgusting to see how people make money at this waterfall, I went there on Saturday 23rd, August 2014 and this man demanded $50 per person to get to the waterfall without a tour guide, there was no sign of TDC certificate. To top it off the police was call in for those who demanded to see the... More

Good signage to the falls, which are about 45 mins outside of Scarborough. Some decent albeit not breathtaking coastal views along the way. Entrance fee is US$10/TT$60 for adults and about US$4/TT$25 for children 12 and under. Wellingtons are available for rental for about US$3/TT$20. Sneakers or water shoes are sensible although we managed in flip flops. An easy 10/15... More

So, the drive is about 40 minutes from the airport area, but be very careful it can be a dangerous drive as the roads are very narrow. But visiting this waterfall is worth it. When you arrive at the entrance you will be greeted by guys trying to hustle you claiming to be tour guides, just pass them straight and... More

I'm so happy we took the guided walk because she showed us so many interesting things. We didn't go way up to the top of the falls but many of the young people climbed their way up the hill and the rocks to get a wet view. We were happy watching the great view from the bottom.
