We journey to the village of Matelot in north east Trinidad. From the road, we start our trek downhill until we reach the base of the river. Here we step gingerly along a stony river bed going upstream the river course until we meet the ravishing waters of Matelot Falls.
The fall is relatively small and can be described as a cascade but its beauty is well worth the visit. The pool before you is quite large and is ideal for swimming. So come to Matelot falls and immerse yourself in a natural beauty.
