I have been to Dominica several times. ‚ I believe I was actually there once when it did not rain. LOL ‚ Your best bet in Dominica is to take a tour. ‚ The downtown area scares me. ‚ I never go to the Private Island and actually try to pick Princess Cruises that do not go to their own Island. ‚ A private island may be good for a cruise line but I don't want to give them all my money. ‚ I prefer the choices of free enterprise.
