  • LIAT-ed again

    LIAT is the tricky idiom that makes your life fully enriched and leaves permanent travel memories. As always there was some sort of scheduling problem with its fleet. This time it was LIAT’s turn to perform on the island of Dominica. The flight was cancelled at the last moment when all the passengers had passed through the security check, a major...

  • Whitchurch Ferry

    We used the Whichurch Ferry which took us from Dominica to St.Lucia in under 4 hours. Their office is downtown Roseau. They were super helpful. We got inot Roseau late because of bad road conditions, the office was closed. We told them we were in need of help and they re-opened the office to give us a hand, if anyone goes there tell them thanks...

  • BEST LOCAL CAB DRIVER VERY NICE AND...

    We went to Dominica on a cruise. We did not purchase a cruise tour. We walked outside and were bombarded with offers for Taxi Tours of the Island. We ended up with an excellent deal with a fellow name Melvin Mellow or Super Cat Taxi (767) 446-4011. We only wanted an abbreviated tour about 2 hours.. the normal tours are four hours. Melvin was...

    If you want to rent a car - it's a lot of fun to drive in Dominica, but not for the fainthearted - I would highly recommend Courtesy Car Rental. They have competitive rates and are conveniently located within Melville Hall Airport - which makes the pick-up and drop-off a breeze.Very nice, friendly and at the same time professional. Fast response at...

  • Vans

    The transportation that the cruise ship lined up for us to go to various island locations on tropical islands in the Caribbean was usually some kind of van. The roads are narrow, very steep and twisty, and the bus often sounded as if it was laboring. Sometimes it would bottom out. They drive on the left with (mostly) left hand drive. So for the...

  • Cruise Ship

    We came by ship, and this has obvious advantages, and some disadvantages. The advantages are:a) You don't have to go through security in the airportb) Your bags won't be lostc) Someone else does the driving.The disadvantages are:a) You are only there for part of a day and can't really get to know the countryb) You can only come in the winter and...

  • Depending on where you are...

    Depending on where you are coming from there are a few options. Normally from The U.S. you fly from your city to Miami or Puerto Rico. You can overnight in Puerto Rico and continue your flight with American Airlines. Otherwise, you'll be connecting and flying on LIAT Airlines. Basically, to get there in the same day, you will probably have to start...

  • Driving in Dominica

    I rented a 4x4 SUV for the week. Driving was on the left hand side and the vehicle was right hand drive. It took a little getting used to. The roads can be very tight especially through some of the villages. Tons of blind turns, steep inclines and declines. Honk your horn as you approach them. If someone honks behind you they are asking to pass. It...

  • Hitch hiking

    One way to see Dominica is by hitch hiking. Everyone does it and its very safe. Just put your hand up and most people will pick you up. I thinks it polite to ask if they want money. Normally you jump in the back of a pickup. Very fun and completely safe. I met a great local and had a terrific chat with him while we sat in the back of a pickup...

  • The "Bus" System in Dominica

    The bus system in Dominica can drive anyone who is used to schedules and bus stops crazy. The buses range from small minivans that are very nice to ones with broken windshields and linoleum flooring (actually quite fun). The buses normally leave once full...so expect large bags or goods and locals. The bis systems don't run on a time system. You...

  • White Knuckled Ride

    Driving on Dominica is scary!!!!! The roads are bad and the drivers are nuts. Everyone drives way too fast. Some of the roads aren't finished and are still being blasted out of the sides of mountains. The hills are steep and wet from the heavy downpours and some roads get washed out. Unfortunately driving is the only way to see what you want to see...

  • The island is fairly small,...

    The island is fairly small, but the interior is extremely mountainous so it will take hours to get from one end of the island to the other through winding roads. Because of this, taxis are pretty pricey, but buses (mini-vans really) are frequent and stop almost everywhere. Also, the bus drivers are extremely helpful and nice.

    The best way to travel is by bus. They use little transit vans. You can get on and off anywhere, not like London or places alike. When you want to get off you just shout Bus Stop. When you want to get on you just stick out yourt hand.
