I will visit Domoinca in February 2016. For some reason I will base myself in Roseau.
The arrival and departure will be at DOM Mellvile Hall airport that is quite a long way.
The obvious question is how to travel between the airport and Roseau.
Thanks a lot for any reasponse.
I will be in Dominica for 12 days. I plan to sleep in Roseau for 4-5 days and visit the southern part of the country; Boiling Lake and adjacent sites.
Then I would like to move to a hotel or guesthouse in a more rural location, close to a village / town. I like nice relaxing views and ambience, but not totally isolated from civilisation, like restaurants.
I will rent a 4 x 4 so can move around. I know the island is small, but I would very much like a rural option rather than spending all the…
I visited Dominica last week, I figured I would do a quick report as there isn't a lot of information here on Dominica.
I flew into Melville Hall airport/air strip. Very small airport, they do have an ATM machine (I think) to change money, a couple of small shops, and a rental car counter.
I rented a car from Avis for about $70 a day. It does seem that this is the best way to get around the island to the national parks and whatnot. I stayed in Portsmouth, it was about an hour's drive from…
Someone else posted a topic in the Martinique forum re the ferry service to Dominica, Express des Iles. As this affects both ends of the ferry, I am pasting my reply to that topic here, as follows (edited for this new topic here):
I am frustrated in trying to find out information about travel from Martinique by ferry. I have heard several conflicting reports. There were two ferry services but now there is only one, Express des Iles. Their website is horrible in any language. It does not work and…
My boyfriend and I are heading to Dominica in January, planning to do some of the hikes/waterfalls/outdoorsy things in the jungle. And while I know Dominica isn't really known for beaches, we'd like to beach out for a few days. I'm having trouble finding accommodation on or within a few minutes walk from a beach that isn't super expensive. We're quite happy with simple places; fabulous amenities and fancy rooms isn't really our thing, so we're hoping for something $125/night or less. Does…
Sleeping accommodation is greatest cost for many travelers (other than getting to starting point/country), so it's important for budgeting travels.
Dominica, for sleeping, is EXPENSIVE and way over-priced , imo, for what you get relative to other countries.
Ma Bass Guesthouse... just off Independence St, in center... USD$ 30 .... very good value, good owner (Ma Bass) , helpful, honest, not greedy (unlike others imo), rooms clean, spacious , one bathroom is small, big kitchen and…
hello, after a beautiful tour of the indian river we were walking in porstmouth near what they called the benjamin park and we find a shop where you can buy some french pastry like croissant , chocolate bread, reasin bread. We buy some and it was very good and very cheap 2$ ec ( 0,75ct us dollar) for one croissant, 2,50 ec $ for the chocolate bread and i dont remember the price of the raisin bread but it was cheap too.
My friend and I are looking for a place to stay for about a month in Dominca. We just want to chill on the beach and drink some beers and relax. We don't even know where to begin to look. We've tried searching the internet but come up pretty empty.
I'd really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance!
I'm writing on behalf of my dad, who is in the Caribbean for work (poor thing). Last minute adjustments to his itinerary mean that he has not been able to book accommadation ahead of time, and what with wonky internet connections and back to back meetings allowing small chance of reseaching his options, he has now ended up in two lousy guest houses full of cockroaches, failing wifi and dodgy fellow guests.
Next stop is Roseau, and it would be nice to change the trend. He is a…
