Dominica is one of the few countries left in the Caribbean that I haven’t visited. My Dominica bucket list includes hiking, adventure, nature, culture and lots and lots of water activities. Starting Wednesday, I will discover this unspoiled destination. My trip will include hiking waterfalls and rappelling canyons. I will dive, snorkel, swim, whale watch and relax on the beach. You know when I visit a new place, I’m all in. My packed schedule will introduce me to the best of Dominica and I’ll be sure to share it all with you.
Here’s a look at some of the highlights of my schedule.
Sari Sari Falls
Sari-Sari Falls is located on the east coast within the village of La Plaine, and starts with a steep incline to the bed of the Sari-Sari River. The trail traverses along the river bed, crossing several times, and meanders along the mountain side.
These famous twin waterfalls are a 20 minute drive from Roseau. There offer a beautiful swimming spot and relaxing hot pools. The trail is less than a mile but my camera will be getting a workout from all the photos I plan on taking.
Underwater volcanoes are the source of Dominica’s dramatic underwater landscape: craters, chasms and sheer walls plunging thousands of feet, and soaring pinnacles formed by lava flow. I’ll snorkel through the warm bubbling waters crated by geothermal vent, sort of like my swim in Antarctica but maybe a little less drastic.
