A nice waterfall in the rainforest. We had a 20-25 minutes walk with a guide to the fall. On the way our guide Esther told us about the fauna and pinted out bird and even a cayman. Last part of the path and area around the waterfall was not easily accessed. Good shoes, i.e. not flipflops, needed. The path got... More

I enjoyed my sojourn at the basin. I'm lazy and the walk-in did not faze me. The water was great and some pools even had fish. Another thing I liked was that the trees were labelled. Thhe vegetation though wild was tamed enough. I will visit again.

Really stunning. If you are adventurous,you really should hike up the falls. Sadly, I am not that brave but my travel buddy insists it is something you must do! Beautiful natural wonder right in Tobago. The short walk to the falls is also peaceful and relaxing.

The waterfall is not a long walk in from a parking area. Be aware that you will need to pay about $10/person to enter. There are a couple of more challenging parts of the walk as you get to the waterfall where there are rocks but otherwise there is a wide road-like trail leading up that has lush vegetation and...

Interesting visit ! After an interesting walk through the cocoa trees the heavens opened as we climbed up the falls. Quick swim in the rock pool and then back before we were washed away - good fun !!

Make sure you walk to the top for the views. At the end, go and visit the gift shop and buy a ball of organic cocoa...amazing!

This is worth a visit - the locals advertise it as the highest waterfall on the island - but don't expect Iguazu falls. A lovely walk into the waterfall, looking a different trees and nature etc - the biggest bugbear are the mozzies - cover up or you will be covered in bites.

Argyle Falls is an easy drive along Tobago's East Coast. There are quite good visitors' facilities. The guides are well trained though at first they come off as very unfriendly. The Waterfalls - there are 3 - are an easy hike with interesting flora and fauna along the way. The water is COLD but refreshing.

It was lovely. An easy hike in that took about 20 minutes lead us to a nice, refreshing swimming hole with several levels of falls. We stayed at the first level because the hike up to the next levels looked a bit too challenging for other people in our party. Grab a bottle of rum and a towel and head... More
