“Little gem of a trip, knowledgable guide, freshwater swimming”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Lovely walk up to the waterfalls with guide telling us about local flora and birdlife. Slightly difficult end scramble over rocks (recommend trainers over flipflops!) but beautiful secluded location and freshwater swim.

“Its a waterfall”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

Quite a difficult walk of about 15 minutes from the car park.. The path when I was there was muddy and slippy and you do have to clamber over rocks..not good if you are unsteady in any way. However spectacular natural wildlife .The falls were not in full flow so perhaps not the best time to see them.

“Easy to get there....”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Argyle is a very easily accessed waterfall - you will need to wear shoes with a good grip but you will not be asked to hike up steep slopes. The guides are young people from the village, the service is controlled and the guide fee is reasonable. They are there to help. Use them!

“What an adventure”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

We walked a long way up the falls away from any other tourists. Lots of fish and birds with some interesting trees and wild fruit to eat further up in the jungle. Pop into Tobago cocoa plantation and mill afterwards. Great diving from the falls.
