Clouds Over Dominica

Clouds Over Dominica From Cruise Ship

At the time of writing this, we’ve been to Dominica twice, and we would happily go to this lush, green island again. The people are friendly. The land is unspoiled. Swimsuits are a must though, and towels, as both times we got very, very wet.

The Value Of A Good Guide, Dominica

Ferns Growing On Trees Trafalgar Falls Dominica

On our first trip to Dominica, we hired a guide through Bumpiing Tours. Not much in Titou Gorge, or Trafalgar Falls is marked and there are few signs. The guide not only pointed out the main sights but also things like this fern growing off of another tree, explaining the wonders of Dominica and the rainforest. On our second trip to Dominica, we hired a driver to take us to the Emerald Pool. The driver simply drove. He was chatty but he either didn’t know much about the area or he didn’t share it. We didn’t learn a lot on that second trip. When we next visit Dominica, we’ll hire a guide, rather than a driver. It is more expensive but better value.

Like St. Lucia, Dominica is an island that is so lush and green and gorgeous in the interior, that you simply should spend some dollars on transportation and see it. The views are wonderful and it feels wild and natural.
