    Favorite thing: I know it's probably been written over and over again, but, if you're in Dominica, you have to hike to the Boiling Lake. You climb 3,000 feet atop Morne Nichols, climb down into the Valley of Desolation, and then climb up again to the Boiling Lake--all while scrambling over rocks, slipping in mud, sweating buckets, huffing the entire way, and seeing the most beautiful sites you may ever see in your life! The scene at the Valley of Desolation (that's the picture--notice all the steam) and the Boiling Lake is definitely other-worldly--lava is sputtering here and there, steam is rising from who knows where, you see a rivulet of boiling black water, and the fumes--I can't even begin to discuss the fumes! This hike isn't only about what you see, but how you feel. Believe me, I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a great hiker--I'm a city girl who felt the greatest sense of accomplishment by completing this grueling, yet rewarding endurance test! Make sure you go with a knowledgeable guide (we got ours through Roxy's Mountain Lodge) because it'll make all the difference on days when the wind is a bit gusty or when the rain makes the mud knee-high. Our guide, Charles was able to spot mud pools and helped us to avoid forced mud wrestling. Please check my travelogue for more photos of the hike.

  • One adventure I'd suggest is...

    Favorite thing: One adventure I'd suggest is spending a day at Cataways Resort which is about 5 miles from Roseau. The beach really is impeccable and so is the restaurant. You will need to call first for permission since it is a resort. You will enjoy diving into the Caribbean sea from the small dock. They can be reached at 767-449-6244 or 888-227-8292 or e-mail them at castaways@cwdom.dm.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Dominica was landing there in April of 1999. Just seeing the ocean and the rain forest near the airport while still airborne was like a fantasy! Be advised, the connecting flights into Dominica are mainly handled by LIAT and the aircrafts normally hold about 20-50 people only. If you love adventure, nature, small shops, and natural ambience, you'll love Dominica.

    Favorite thing: We found the police to be a good source of information and very helpful.
    Tal and her friend Tyler got a good picture of this policeman in Roseau.
