One day in Dominica

Dominica is my favourite island in the Caribbean. There is a lot you can do. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time.
We tried to take some chocolate with us, but the factory was closed and the shops didn’t have any. There was a small market that I saw a wooden parrot that I had to take with me. It was handcrafted and very beautifully made with lots of small details. Perhaps not the typical souvenir, however the Sisserou parrot is the national bird of Dominica and a national symbol, so it counts.

Morne Trois Pitons National Park

Emerald Pool


Other sights in the national Park are:

Boiling Lake - It is a 6-8 h hike to the boiling lake
Middleham Falls - It is a 3 h hike to the Middleham Falls and starts at the same point as the hike to the boiling lake

Spanny Falls near Trafalgar Falls


Jacko Falls

It’s a small but steep hike from Spanny Falls, however I was told it is also possible to access it from the road.

Salton Falls

The waterfall can be reached by a very bumpy ride or a slightly longer hike. The path was not well cared for, but we had the fall to ourselves.

Trafalgar Falls

They are also called Mother and Father Falls. The mother fall is the wider lower fall. The viewpoint is easily reachable.

Titou Gorge

You can swim through the gorge to a waterfall. It was also a filming site for one of the Pirates in the Caribbean movies.

Other things to do, that I haven’t mentioned yet:

Morne Bruce with a nice view over Roseau the capital of Dominica
Morne Diablotin National Park named after Morne Diablotin , which is the highest mountain in Dominica. There are some parrots on the mountain that are a national symbol of Dominica.
Champagne Reef is a snorkling spot
Dominica also has some beaches like the Mero Beach
