Hello,

I recently visited Dominica and rented a vehicle from Island Car Rentals. I want to tell you that I was very pleased with the vehicle and the service your company provided, and I especially want to point out how kind and helpful Jason was each and every time we needed to communicate or coordinate about anything. Thank you very much for such excellent and professional service, Jason!

I will absolutely recommend Island Car Rental to others, and I look forward to renting a vehicle from you again.

Happy New Year!

The Cabrits

cabrits-smThe Cabrits National Park includes natural coastal forest, a marine park and the remains of an historic 18th century garrison. Trails take you past the remains of military buildings that have become entwined by giant roots.

At Fort Shirley, the centre piece of the park, years of careful restoration has recreated the fortifications so that visitors can get a taste of what the world of Caribbean pirates and naval combat was like in the days of Sir Francis Drake, Sir John Hawkins, Prince Rupert and Horatio Nelson; all of whom once anchored in this beautiful bay.

Trafalgar Falls

trafalgar-smThese twin falls burst forth from a forested cliff face to tumble into a series of rock pools in the heights of the Roseau Valley near to the village of Trafalgar.

Warm water springs bubble out to form natural Jacuzzis and a plunge into the cold mountain water nearby gives the experience of an outdoor sauna in the tropics.

Boiling Lake

This bubbling cauldron is nestled in an exploded crater and is the second largest Boiling Lake in the world. The hike to get there passes through the surreal Valley of Desolation and traverses multi-colored hot streams and gushing fumaroles.

This legendary adventure has been listed by the Guardian Newspaper UK as among the top 50 hikes in the world.

Emerald Pool

emerald-smAs the name implies, this pool glows emerald amidst the surrounding vegetation. It is fed by a delicate waterfall cascading from a mountain stream that has carved a green amphitheater out of layers of volcanic rock. It is part of the Trois Pitons National Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A trail through the rainforest, which forms part of the Waitukubuli National Trail gives you an introduction to some of the thousands of species of indigenous plants that grow on the island.
