I just come back from Dominica, a place for hiking only, NO NIGHT life at all, but it doesn't matter, back home, I'll do my best to compensate. I was surprised to get an hotel at only 15us$ a night, I'm single and there they don't charge extra money. All the guests got one free tour on Tuesday. So, we went to Victoria falls, the biggest water fall of Dominica and after crossing the deep water about 5 times with our guide Didier, we reach the pool of the water fall. At my best satisfaction, NO concrete, just the nature, nothing to recall the civilization. The water was refreshing and "white", Didier insisted: everybody must taste the water. Why to come so far inside the nature if you don't try that nature was the argumentation of Didier.
After the water fall, we had a rasta diner with real rasta people, veges only with no artificial flavor. It was good and cheap.
3 O'clock in the afternoon, we reach Petite Soufriere, where we bath in real volcanic hot hot hot water... I still sweat when I think about it.
The other days, we were 5 to share the price of the other tours, it comes to about 14us$ a complete day. We saw parrots, the tropical forest, a Loch Ness lake (yes, unbelievable, a Loch Ness in Dominica) and so many other things.
If you want a good deal, just search stonedge in Dominica.
