I've been to the falls twice. The first time it was a little rainy, so it was not as enjoyable as this last time. Try and go on a sunny day. The main reason is it can get slippery when it rains. You might want it dry so you can climb down onto the rocks and into the hot pools... More

Now, I am from Scotland and we do have our fair share of waterfalls! So I guess I was a little underwhelmed by them. But did enjoy the area around the falls and THE most spectacular drive up to them. If youi go, don't just stand and look at them from the viewing platform. Carry on and scramble into the... More

The Trafalgar Waterfalls are the amongst the most accessible waterfalls in Dominica. There is a twenty minute drive to the tourist reception facility and ten a ten minute hike to the view point. They come from two different water sources and are quite spectacular

These falls were very pretty and very accessible meaning the walk was less than 15 minutes from the parking lot. However, I am from a tropical island so it was not very impressive for me. People who have never been in a rain forest will enjoy it very much! Plan to catch a taxi there, the ride is fairly long... More

Carnival cruise ship Liberty offered this as a shore excursion and the falls were so beautiful. We were supposed to go to St Kitts, due to heavy winds, we went to Dominica. Our tour guide Crista was so genuinely kind and informative about her island. The people of Dominica were so nice and happy to see us.

Traveling on the jewel of the seas with Royal Caribbean this was one of our stops. We picked to see Trafalgar Falls as well as the Emerald pools. It was a very wet and rainy day in February 2014. Our tour guide was simply amazing. The bus took you up The Windee roads up into the mountains. You walk in... More

Haggled with a local taxi driver to take us up to the falls, don't use the cruise line trips. Falls are very impressive but it is a strenuous walk up to the viewing platform with a lot of steps, not suitable if you have mobility issues. You can then go down to the base of the falls and bathe in... More

The Trafalgar Falls are absolutely gorgeous. You must visit these falls when you go to Dominica. It's a short walk through a fantastic rain forest to get there. After visiting the falls you can go to the hot water springs for another fantastic experience. The pictures don't do justice to how truly beautiful these falls are.

These falls are pretty, but the walk through the rainforest to get to falls was challenging. I was on a tour from our Princess Cruise. The path to the falls was uneven rough terrain, also strenuous as it was on an incline. There was very little to hold onto. We got a drink as part of our tour, I got... More
