Another great place to relax is Screw’s Sulphur Spa on the southern side of the island. A natural hot springs area, this park takes the hot water that comes from the volcano and pours it into different pools, changing the temperature by adding differing amounts of cold water to the hot. Jump into the icy cold pool and immediately into stingingly hot one right across to complete the experience!
5- The People
Dominica’s islanders are peaceful, happy, and extremely friendly. They’ll help you out in whatever you need, and since the island’s official language is English you’ll find it relatively easy to communicate. (I say relatively because of the thick Caribbean accent which you will quickly get an ear for.)
Island life has the mentality of doing things at a slower pace. You cannot rush the island. So embrace this lovely culture and relax! Even if things don’t happen on time, they will happen.
Tips on Visiting Dominica:
Fly to Douglas-Charles Airport in the village of Marigot and start your tour in the north.
Rousseau is the capital of Dominica, but it is not the best representation of the island. I recommend visiting the more natural areas and staying away from the town unless necessary.
Transport is easy and cheap. Just flag down any passing minivan/bus and they will take you wherever you want to go. To get across the island won’t cost you more than $5 USD.
Pagua Bay is a fantastic hotel with reasonable prices near Marigot. It is run by Americans Rick and Alicia.dominica-060
