Now don’t get me wrong. It is not that I thought there were no real hikes in Tobago apart from the hike to the gorgeous Argyle Waterfall. But, I just personally had never been hiking I’m Tobago 😮 although I have been visiting Tobago for more than 20+ years and have been there more times that I could count. So, I was very excited when on a hot sunny day, a couple days before Christmas we decided to set out to find the beautiful Rainbow Falls and Twin River Falls in Goodwood Tobago 😀
Prior to arriving in Tobago, we had done some research and found some clearish directions online. We drove to Goodwood about a 40 mins drive from Crown Point and turned off at Cow Farm Road. We then drove a further 15 mins taking a right at the National Energy Skills Centre (NESC) building and drove till we arrived at a quaint, charming resort called Rainbow Nature Resort where we parked our car 😎
The very friendly owner was able to give us some directions to our first stop……..Rainbow Waterfall. She however warned us that there had been some heavy rain for the last two days and that there maybe some debris in the river. However, we have been hiking for a couple of years and that did not faze us. We started our trek excited to be embarking on this new adventure ❤
After one or two wrong turns, we eventually found the correct path and arrived at Rainbow falls after only 20 mins of walking along a flat river bed.
Rainbow Falls was stunning! 😉 A true gem for a photographer, the sun provided perfect lighting for the falls, the water was refreshing and cold but …. as the lady had stated, there was a lot of debris in the waterfall which made bathing impossible. So after taking some pictures we decided to head to check out another waterfall.
Have you ever been hiking in Tobago? What do you think of Rainbow Waterfall?
PS. A little about me, I have been hiking for about 5 years and I am currently a hike-leader with HikersUnited (IG and FB).
