Beautiful in all aspects
Scary landing at the airport
Narakiel’s Inn is one of these places that are not going to let you go indifferent. The precursor to future troubles was the contact over the Internet with the sales lady who insisted on prepaid reservation which was declined due to the adventurous nature of the Caribbean transport system. This was not good enough and she went on and on advertising...more

We did an excursion from the cruise ship to Champagne Reef for a "snorkeling safari". Champagne reef was definitely worth the visit.

Just take a stroll through the town, the people all over the island of Dominica seem to accept you and are curious at the same time.
