Follow Along as I Discover Dominica

Victoria Falls, Dominica

Dominica is one of the few countries left in the Caribbean that I haven’t visited. It’s a hiker’s paradise with adventure, beauty, nature, and culture abound. Starting Wednesday, I will discover this unspoiled destination. My trip will include hiking Sari Sari Falls and Trafalgar Falls. I’ll canyon, dive, snorkel, and relax on the beach. I’ll swim at Bubble Beach Spa and Champagne Reef and enjoy a whale watching excursion. 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 & Emerald Pool
Emerald Pool, Dominica

This wonderful grotto is a short walk into the rain forest in the center of the island. While the pool is stunning, I’ve already been warned that it’s a little cold for swimming. That’s not going to stop this Canadian though! When I was younger, we would go swimming every year on the long weekend in May (Victoria Day). If it’s colder than I expect, I already put it in writing that I’m getting in so there is no backing out now. I’ll be sure to take photos as proof.

Trafalgar Falls

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.

Champagne Reef

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.

Palmiste WNT, Dominica

I’ll share photos daily on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. Follow along there, or watch for the hashtag #LovinDominica, if you want to be the first to see my Dominica journey.

      • That is so wonderful. My dream, long researched and worked on, is to create an international wellness center resort and learning center. On my now 137 week journey I’ve toured various resorts and spas along the way and blogged about it but have yet to have any of them offer me a room or treatment.

  1. I’m so excited that you’re getting to visit the Commonwealth of Dominica!
    I visited there when I was fourteen years old; my first-trip-without-the-parents! Such great memories, excitements and new experiences for me at that time. I can’t wait to read all about yours 🙂
    Have an amazing time! 🙂

        Yes. It was my younger sister and myself on that visit.
        [And the family we stayed with were friends of my parents AND had children our age. So my parents weren’t worried. We were in great care 😀 ]
        Luckily for us, they were adventurous and wanted to share their beautiful country with us, so we go to see quite a lot during that week… 😀 😀
