Great jungle walk to the falls!

I think I enjoyed the marvellous jungle along the well groomed trail to the falls as much as the falls! and the falls were awesome!

An excursion from our cruise ship brought us up the steep hills into the Morne Trois Pitons National Park for a moment of reflection and enjoyment of this small but gem-like attraction about 10 km outside Roseau, Dominica's capital. This is by no means the likes of Victoria Falls in Africa, the Iguazu Falls in Uruguay or Niagara Falls in... More

Beautiful tropical setting. The "twin" falls originate with two completely separate water sources, one of volcanic (hot springs) origin and one fed by rainforest runoff only. Relatively easy path to the observation platform (wheelchairs would be a challenge, because of steps and some short steep sections). Once there, drink in your surroundings and you might, as I did, find Brown... More

If you're only here for a day then get this on your list if you want to experience the island. Do not stay out by the port you will not be impressed with this island until you go visit places like this!

My wife and I just returned from a NCL cruise which visited 5 islands including Dominica. If you want to save some money and experience the local feeling it's easy. My wife and I just headed up town and asked a few locals about a van or bus to the falls. They told us where to catch one and for... More

This was one of our first stops when we got to the island and it was a great intro. The walk to the falls was very easy and the small platform offered a great view. We navigated down to the water itself and while it was super slippery it would have been a shame to miss. Be sure to pause... More

a trail, a bit rough but no big deal, it ends at a viewing platform, got some nice pics. One couple continued on, never got the word by the tour guide to stop at the platform. The tour guide said to be back at the bus in 20 min. I confronted him and said it's a 10 min walk ea.... More

I've been to most of the islands in the Caribbean, few can hold a candle to the beauty of Dominca. Trafalgar Falls exemplifies the beauty of the island. It's an interesting half mile hike from the parking lot and visitor center to the Falls viewing station, and then a short additional walk down to the hot springs for a dip-... More

One of the best things we did in Dominica. The walk through the tropical forest itself was beautiful with many different flowers and trees. There are two falls virtually side by side. It had just rained so water was surging. Some people continued on to enjoy a dip under the falls, but our guide suggested staying on the observation deck.... More

Don't miss a trip to these falls. Not only do you have the twin falls to observe, but make sure you wear your bathing suit so you can soak in the hot springs along the way.
