“Beautiful waterfalls and pool!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

So glad we made the trip to Emerald Pool and Waterfalls in Dominica (even though it was a trek to get there, it was well worth it!) The drive from the ship port was about 45 minutes up the winding mountain until we arrived at Morne Trois Pitons National Park where Emerald Falls is located. There is a $5 park entrance fee (per person) and a short hike with about 100 steps down to the falls and back up, so wear comfortable shoes. Also carry a bag with towel, change of clothing, drink, and camera - be sure to capture videos/photos of this beautiful pool and waterfalls, esp. with you under the falls and swimming in the pool!

“Beautiful Tranquility”
Reviewed February 26, 2009

We were on the Carnival Victory ship and when we docked in Dominica we hired a taxi driver by the name of KOJAK to give us a 5 hour tour of the island. It included a trip up to the rainforest and Emerald Falls. Emerald Falls was very crowded as it is filled with tours/buses. The worst thing was the wait in line to pay $5.00 to hike to the falls. There were 2 girls working the counter which also sold pop, water and snacks. So the line was very long. It would have made more sense to have 1 line for entrance tickets and one line for food.

The wait in line was worth it though. Myself, my husband and 8 year old son followed the trails which were beautiful. Great photo opportunities. We reached the falls and it was crowded. Most people go in their swimsuits. You have to climb up some treacherous rock formations and it is very crowded with others. Water shoes or gym shoes are best. Then if you choose you can go into the water which was rather cold (around 67 degrees). It was slippery and difficult to get into also. My son was in right away and jumping in from behind the waterfall. He had a ball but I was a little scared.

Worth the trip - even if not going in - very scenic and great photo opportunities.
