This is a very special place. A somewhat steep walk down to the falls and hot springs, but you definitely don't have to be a hiker to do it. Wear water sandals or sneakers that can go in water - it's slippery! As with most waterfall hikes on Dominica, plan to wear a swimsuit under your clothes and then spend... More

To call Trafalgar Falls a 'hike' would be a major overstatement. The walk to reach the vista is around 10 minutes; a leisurely stroll with a major jackpot at the end. The twin falls were a beautiful intro to Dominica for us. This was our first stop, so we purchased the multi-day, multi-site pass for our stay, knowing that we'd... More

Trafalgar Falls is the closest falls to Roseau and one of the best in Dominica. Most falls on the island require a long hike but not this one. Take a leisurely 10 minute walk (with some new stairs) and you are ready to enter warm or cold water. The choice is yours as there are hot springs as well. The... More

Had a great time at the falls! A fairly short hike/walk over a pretty easy trail, mostly dirt, to get from the visitor center to the falls. Some ups and downs on the trail, but not a hard hike at all for most people who enjoy any kind of hiking. A nice viewing area close to the falls if you... More

We took the local bus all the way to the falls and enjoyed the short hike down to the beautiful view. I was not able to climb the rocks as well as my partner, so I just hung out and enjoyed the view while he jumped around. We pretty much had the place to ourselves which I hear is uncommon.... More

Lovely hike down mountain through a beautiful rain forest! Mama and Papa falls are beautiful. This is a true rain forest! The hike back up the mountain on uneven steps was quiet taxing, especially for older visitors!

Visited as part of a cruise excursion. A small hike to get to the falls, so definitely wear comfortable shoes. Beautiful rainforest as well as scenery. I would have liked to get closer to the falls but excursion time would now allow. Would visit again as part of a solo excursion.

The trafalgar falls are great. You have 2 falls, 1 is hot and 1 is cold. You can sit in the hot waters and chill out. It seems weird looking at 2 discrete falls with such different temperatures.

A short hike down a well-maintained path leads you to two waterfalls and several pools of varying temperatures. This is an extremely busy tourist spot due to its easy access. This is a favorite spot of cruise ship tourists, so if you're staying on the island, try to make it out a day when there are no ships in. Wear... More
