The hike to Avocat Falls is one of the easiest hikes on the Caribbean island of Trinidad.
In addition to the ease, there’s the reward of a clear cool pool beneath the waterfall that’s ideal for swimming in. There’s also a rock directly beneath the cascading water that’s easy to climb. Once on the rock, you could bask under a natural shower created by the waterfall
The only slightly difficult part of this adventure is the drive to get there, because it involves going quite a few miles past the popular Maracas Beach and along a much bumpier portion of the North Coast Road. You go past Las Cuevas Beach and even the less popular Blanchisseuse Beach.
Check out the Guide to North Coast Beaches in Trinidad for information on these beaches.
The hike takes around 20 to 30 minutes at a leisurely stroll and there’s virtually no difficult terrain or rocks..
This hike could even be comfortably done with no shoes since most of it is along cool mud and soft grass.
While the water is too shallow for any leaps from a high rock. It is fun to be able to bask under the natural shower of Avocat Falls or to sit on rocks behind the curtain of water.
