I was in Dominica in April of `06.I enjoyed it there.There is some good diving around the island.There is also a good amount to do inland for non divers.My friend doesn`t dive,and he suggested Dominica for a trip.Most of the island is mountainous rainforrest,and it always seems to be raining somewhere there.There are several very nice waterfalls to see.Some require a moderate to difficult hike to get to,but it is worth the effort.I stayed at the Ancorage,south of Rouso,where we booked all our tours through,including the diving/snorkeling.We went on a whale watch trip with their boat and got to see a humpback whale breeching several times.Pretty cool. The only drawback I encountered was that we had to change airlines in San Juan from USAirways to Caribbean Sun,and both my friend`s and my checked bags did not arrive in Dominica until five days later.Quite a hassle,but it didn`t spoil the vacation. I would definitely go back sometime.Possibly next spring. Hope you enjoy your trip.Ray.
