Due to the rain the falls had really a lot of water. So it was forbidden to swim there. But the water didn't look good - it was "brown" because of the bad weather. What a pity. I can imagine, that this falls are amazing if the condition is ok.

Interesting short trek with a very knowledgable guide, falls were a bit disappointing as it was the end of the dry season so not much water, would like to see at the end of the rainy season as think it would be spetacular.

If you like nature and you like beautiful places then it's a must. I personally went with a local and they walked me to the falls without paying. Pretty sure it's 60 TT for tourists.

An easy walk/hike to the falls. Nice to jump in the pools to cool down when you get there. Do not need to a guide, they are available if you want one ...we went on our own, Lots of flora and fauna to view along the way. An enjoyable way to spend the afternoon :)

My friends and I went to Argyle Falls last week. It was so beautiful. The falls never seem to end, with at least 5 pools to hike to higher and higher up. The flora and fauna is amazing and the water is clean and clear and deep enough to jump into. The highest pool has a branch for diving and... More

It was very scenic, guides very friendly and lots to see. it takes about 15 mins to walk in to falls. lots of different species of birds can be seen along the route. Falls are clean and you can swim in the pools if you so desire

This fall is quit little. You can swim there, but quite cold water.A bit to walk there and can see some birds, but nothing special about the fall.

You can hire a guide if you like I chose to do it on my own and thoroughly enjoyed myself, A short hike that is easily done brings you to this pretty little falls. I spent the extra energy and climbed to the top and had a swim there. I thought i was home in Canada buuurrrrr that's cold water,... More

We were advised by our housekeeper to use Hans Tours for an island tour and we did not regret it! He was knowledgeable about the environment and managed to drive on those perilous roads whilst spotting things that I wouldn't have seen if I was looking! He had a great sense of humour and was honest when he didn't know... More

Whether as part of a tour or you find it on your own, Argyle Falls is a relatively easy hike in and worth the effort. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the flora and fauna and spotted things for us to see that we surely would have missed on our own (caymans, parrots, etc.). As you approach the falls, there...
