I am always excited in seeing the many waterfalls on the island and this one is no exception. This is our highest single drop waterfall which I recommend for your viewing.

A small waterfall but in a beautiful surrounding. Great on your way visit when travelling to Maracas bay. Worth the visit for an hour,

A fun and beautiful place to relax, you have to take a lot of pictures. The waterfall is pretty high and I suggest you maintain the family unit when near water of this magnitude, safety must be on the top of your mind. The heavy down pour is enjoyable. I recommend you take a trip.

My biggest mistake was not taking my camera, it is so beautiful there. So peaceful and relaxing great for couples but the whole family will also enjoy this park.

To see the beauty of this fall you will have to visit after the heavy rains. During that time the volume of water makes the fall spectacular. In severe dry season the fall pours little water. Overall it's a beautiful fall, the highest single drop fall in Trinidad as far as I know. There is no pool under the fall,... More

We started early and what a trek, but we made it up safely and we all had a great time there. It was worth it after we were in full view of the magnificent waterfall. I mean I live here in Trinidad and it amazes me every time to look upon the beauty that this country has to offer. It... More

Such a pity. A marvelous waterfall and gorgeous river, totally spoiled by locals. The parking area to the waterfall is not clearly signposted. Should you find your way to the waterfall, be prepared to close your eyes to piles of rubbish people didn't have the decency to take with them when they left. Don't go. What should be a national...

I love the drive similar to the Jackie Robinson in NYC its curves are just a driver's dream. The fresh air and just the scenary will put any stressed out traveler in a relaxed mode. You should always stop on the way for some of the local delicacies. From mango, tamarind ball to sugar cake, you will find something that... More

The Maracas waterfall is a MUST. Your just park your car at the last house and ask for the young boy's there that give you guidance. They know everything you need to know about the area. From the namw and uae of the numerous threes around to the snakes that might be encountered on the road. We did not encounter... More
