“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Beautiful place to exercise by walking trails that take you to the waterfall. To enter you have to pay money (I think $ 5) in addition to taxi ($ 20 per person) and probably as much a point of interest, this congested from other tourists as you cruise. As expected of a tropical forest the road is dirt and stone, you can say it is a moderate exercise, so it is not for a person recomenble severely diseased joints of the legs. I recommend you bring a bottle of water per person, before starting the walk. At the entrance you can buy water or snacks. The nature around you and the view is beautiful. Being a tropical forest waterfalls back after'll probably have thirst. The temperature is pleasant and the atmosphere is humid. The water is pretty cold, but if you go, do not forget to bring your towel and a change of dry clothes, it might inspire you to get in the water and you'll lose a good experience if you're not prepared.


The bathrooms are no better and no access for the disabled.

“Emerald Pool - Dominica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My family and I absolutely LOVED this attraction! This is by far the best attraction we've seen! This is a very beautiful island, very relaxing! Not too much for those who want the nightlife, but for those who enjoy nature at it's best. The Emerald Pool was AMAZING! A little bit of a hike to the Emerald Pool, but once we saw how beautiful it was, it didn't matter how far we hiked. We were able to get into the Pool also which felt wonderful. The Emerald colored water is breathtaking! If you do visit this attraction, please wear sneakers/water shoes and carry flipflops/sandals once you're there at the Pool. You may want to take extra clothing/towels also. Upon arriving to the Emerald Pool, we went through a rainforest which our kids loved! Also, there are vendors before entering the Pool, make sure you purchase some sugar cane sticks and pineapple....very very good! Too bad we couldn't bring some back with us! This is a MUST SEE attraction!

We visited the Emerald Pool as part of a cruise ship shore excursion. It is a 103 irregularly shaped steps down to the pool and an even more difficult 103 steps back up. If you don't want to climb down to it, there is a beautiful overlook not far from the trail entrance. You can swim in the pool if you wish. It is said to be the fountain of youth.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

We've been here a couple of times and it is easily one of our favorite spots on the island... but due to it's beauty it also tends to be very busy!
