Following stops at the Emerald Pool, Trafalgar Falls, a geothermal pool & steam vent, the Botanical Gardens, & at a spectacular overlook (these great sites deserve blog posts of their own!), we said “Tchau” to Oris (while English is the main language, Creole is widely spoken), & got some lunch in Roseau. At the suggestion of a police officer stationed outside the court building (always ask the locals!), we headed to the Cocorico Cafe, where we noshed on jerk chicken & fresh fish in coconut sauce (a local delicacy), while sipping Kubuli, the local beer of choice. Before heading back to the boat, we explored Roseau & stopped at Our Lady of Fair Haven cathedral – a beautiful, old stone Roman Catholic church in the middle of town.
Our day in Dominica was graciously provided by Discover Dominica, the Dominican tourism bureau.
