Our last full day we were in Tobago we ventured out to Argyle Waterfall. Argyle Waterfall is about an hour away from where we were staying. As we drove to the waterfall we passed some of the most beautiful views that I’ve ever seen in my life. Driving along the coast for about 60% of the trip my boyfriend and I were wowed by the beauty we witnessed.
Once we reached the attraction we had to pay about $60TT dollars to be admitted into the attraction. From the entrance to the main waterfall it takes about 15 minutes or less to walk. As you get closer and closer to the waterfall it become more difficult to walk as you have to walk up and down slippery rocks and moist leaves to get to the waterfall.
The first and main waterfall isn’t all that there is to it. Once you arrive to this point there’s an option to climb the waterfall and go up to the several other levels, pools and waterfalls that are higher up on the mountain. Being that I was not confident enough with my mountain climbing skills I elected to stay at the bottom as my cousins and boyfriend made their way to the top.
As my boyfriend began climbing, one of my cousins kicked off his shoes and told him that climbing the waterfall would be easier without shoes. Apparently if you have “American Feet” and you are not used to walking around outside barefooted this is not the right move. My boyfriend climbed the whole waterfall barefooted and in pain. This made for many laughs after the fact but he learned his lesson.
