I visited Dominica on mid February. I was very concerned about how to get around the island.
First of all I was afraid on airport transportation. LP guidebook suggests to stay near the airport as the beaches are around. I opted to stay in the capital city of Roseau, and this sounded quite alarming because the airport is at the other end of the island. A fellow traveller insisted that I had to rent a car because "so is the situation in Dominica". What finally happened was much…
I will be in Dominica in April and would love to do some turtle watching. I have found a lot of information online about Rosalie Bay beach, but it seems that this is a private beach owned by the Rosalie Bay Resort.
A Dominica tourist website recommended the beaches around Marigot, Londonderry, Wesley and Calibishie in the northeast, but I cannot find any details of how you organise a turtle watching tour or which beaches are best in those areas.
Does anyone have an advice please? Thank…
We are staying with my brother who has a remote place up in the highlands on Dominica for ten days or so in March.
Having landed in St. Lucia we are travelling to Dominica, but thought we might stay a few days on either Martinique or Guadeloupe on the way back to St Lucia as we are taking the ferry.
Which island would be recommended please.
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…
