Discount Code

Dominica Island  

Travel Requirement: Beginning Jan 1, 2008, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative requires all U.S. citizens, citizens of the British Territory of Bermuda, and citizens of Canada and Mexico visiting Dominica to have a passport or other secure document that establishes the bearer’s nationality to enter or re-enter the United States.


You can explore the island on a jeep safari tour, visit the national park for hiking and mountain biking, take a quadracer tour, or rent a jeep or scooter and go cruising for a day.

If you like the ocean, you can swim, snorkel, dive, sail, go fishing, try snuba or seatrek, parasailing, banana boating or any of the many sea activities available.

Getting around

If you plan to rent a car in Dominica, be aware you will be driving on the left. The only islands in the Caribbean where you drive on the right are Aruba, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Martinique, and the Netherlands Antilles.

Taxi service is available on the island. Although metered rates vary, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles and scooters are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.

You can use your home driver’s license but you'll need to purchase a temporary Dominica driver's license for $20. Remember, when you take to the road, British rules apply, so keep to the left. Pedestrians should remember to look right before crossing streets.
