Nice little waterfall and easy access (but like everywhere else in Dominica, there's some mud and walking on roots). Just put in Spanny's Shop into Google maps and you'll be fine. There's no admission fee (at least right now), and you can actually drive down...More

Spanny Falls was a fun little hike. We did the extended hike to Penrice Falls and as long as you were appropriate footwear and don't mind using the rope to get up the embankment I suggest going to see it as well. Also stop in...More

Waterfall is nice although maybe not as grand as others. It's a pleasant walk to it through lots of flowers and colorful foliage. It's easier to spot when driving north as opposed to driving south. There is a charge (10 EC) since private.Well worth the...More

The hike is not long, but probably not appropriate on a wet day due to the nature of the trail. Bring currency in EC, otherwise you will be overcharged if you use US dollars.

These falls are just a small and very easy walk away from the road (10 minutes). The falls themselves, in the middle of the rain forest, are very beautiful. And the splash pool is a very enjoyable place to swim and spend some time. All...More

Spanny falls was easy to find and a short hike. Once you pay the land owners a small fee, they tell you where the path is located. Light traversing of roots and rocks were required and well worth it. After reaching the first waterfall, continue...More

Could potentially be a hazard with walking to get back from the main road, but so so worth the trek there. Falls are breathtaking in the middle of the rain forest, so much to see on the way there. Falls are small in nature but...More

Spanny falls is a great choice if you are looking for a relatively easy hike (15 minutes or so) on a well-maintained trail and a waterfall that doesn't get a lot of traffic. You will see people here, but not even remotely close to the...More
