Tour Overview

What you will visit:
Botanical Gardens
This 40-acre oasis is the largest swath of green space in Roseau and is considered one of the botanical gems of the Caribbean. Established in 1891 by order of the British Crown, these excellent botanical gardens are home to over 50 indigenous species of plants and trees and home to an aviary for Sisserou parrots, the national bird of Dominica. A stroll through the fragrant blooms and verdant vegetation makes for an idyllic retreat. In 1979, the garden was ravaged by Hurricane David, and evidence of this can be seen in a large bus that is crushed beneath a toppled bapbob tree. The wide lawns are used for national parades, celebrations and cricket matches.

Hibiscus Falls
A short, flat and easy walk will take you to a spectacular viewing point of a tropical, thundering waterfall tucked away in the rainforest greenery of Dominica. Wear your swimsuit if you'd like to take a refreshing dip in the grotto-like pools under the cascades.

What you will see along the way:
Roseau
Dominica's sassy and colorful capital, Roseau (rose-oh) hugs the southwest coast of the Roseau River. It is the hub of this small island of volcanic terrain, sparkling waterfalls, beaches and lush national parks set against a backdrop of emerald mountains. Roseau's dense town center boasts historic buildings made of wood and stone that line the streets with a unique architectural style that borrows from the Spanish, English and French. A scenic drive reveals both the lovely natural highlights of the Roseau Valley as well as the city's landmarks.

Photo Opportunity:
Morne Bruce
From the panoramic hilltop of Morne Bruce, point your lens at the stellar views of the entire town of Roseau and the Botanical Gardens.

Snack:
While at Hibiscus Falls, enjoy a taste of local seasonal fruits along with a complimentary rum punch or fruit juice.

Special Notes

 

There is an optional short walk down some steps to the waterfall's pool where you can take a quick dip if you desire. This tour requires little walking. Access to the falls is one of the Caribbean's easiest, a good selling point. The steps to the waterfall's pool may be slippery. Wear a swimsuit and bring a towel if you plan to swim.

Note: This tour is accessible. Wheelchair guests should book DOM-111. Family or friends traveling with a confined guest should book this tour DOM-110. You will travel together.
