Long but interesting walk when your with a guide who can point out all the different plants and animals (recommend Peter cox) once at the waterfall, you will have to walk through so wear suitable footwear! Water is very clear and refreshing. You'll get some awesome photos underneath it!

Visited while on a tour of the island. Walk up to the falls with a guide who give lots of info on the estate and trees and any birds. Walk is fairly relaxed, but hot and humid. Also wear walking shoes rather than flip flops as pathway can be messy and rather slippy.

Take the long windy road from Scarborough to Roxborough, about 1 - 1.5 hrs depending on traffic. Turn left on Roxbourough - Parlatuvier Road, then follow the signs. Park inside the gate near the fire station. The cashier is to the right of the entrance fee sign. The tourist price is $60 TT per adult, but they take USD. (less... More

Nice walk to the waterfall, rocks to sit on, you could swim there but we didn't wish to. Very peaceful and surrounded by rainforest. No facilities but we didn't expect any.

The waterfall is beautiful. This being said the day I went the water was brown. It freaked me out a bit because you can't see the bottom. My swim was short. I made the mistake of wearing flip flops and it's a good 10 minute walk to get to the waterfall. It was very muddy and very slippery. I almost... More

I am from Costa Rica, so I am used to waterfalls in the Rainforest, even so Argyle is surrounded by an interesting secondary forest with a big influence from another former plantation... maybe in the past century somebody planted huge areas of bamboo and today that bamboo is very invasive on the endemic nature. All in all, Argyle waterfall deserves... More

After paying about $12 CDN, my wife and I took the 15-minute walk to the waterfall. For those who've seen few forest waterfalls, Argyle would seem impressive. For us, it was rather average. The several staff members we saw sitting around the entrance should spend more time picking up litter on the trail.

It s a waterfall. Easily accessible, quite high, but still a waterfall. Not worth the 60tt (~9-10€). You pay the same also if not taking the guide and the guides, to be honest, rather prefer watching the tv back in the reception area.

We visited with a family of around 7 of us as part of a island tour. It cost around 60TT dollars which works out at around £8 depending on the rate you get. The cashiers office closes at 5pm in October so if you don't want to pay you could go later but it usually goes dark at 6 so... More
