Dominica is nice little iland where Caribbean cruising go. I recommended to take tour to near waterfall and botanica garden. You can see most of the good views and feel the driving experience on narrow hill roads.

We went all around the island to different sites and the worst posted was the Botanical Gardens in Roseau. It was very hard to find where to enter and if you asked different park personnel you get different answers. We eventually skipped it.

I went to the Botanic Gardens by myself, on a drizzly day in April. I wanted to see the Baobab tree, and, it is a very interesting sight, lying there on that crushed school bus. The giant Banyan tree is impressive too, as well as...More

I visited the island of Dominica on a five-hour excursion from a cruise ship. The ship had docked at Roseau and the excursion included a botanical garden, national park, and a geothermal swimming pond. The city of Roseau is filthy with litter and trash everywhere....More

Nice view from the top. A short walk in the gardens will be enough, it is not very spectacular. In a protected corner there are some impressive parrots.

Like the island itself, the botanical garden has suffered a fair bit when hurricane Maria hit in 2017. Since then the staff has worked diligently to restore the garden to its former glory - at least to the extent possible with many trees lost to...More

Skip Dominica Botanic Gardens unless you're just coming to mourn. What once was apparently a nice area (and is still a picnic spot for Dominicans) has been devastated by hurricanes (most recently Hurricane Maria in September 2017) and hasn't recovered. There's an aviary with a...More

That the Botanic Gardens in Roseau have suffered from hurricanes can best be seen at the place's most famous sight: a giant Baobab tree, who crashed over a parked schoolbus (nobody inside) during hurricane David in 1979. While this had been the end for the...More

These botanical gardens have suffered terrible hurricane damage over the years and as a result it has less to offer than it used to. However it is free and some amazing trees and sights remain, such as the crushed school bus under the Baobab tree...More

Hurricane David, in August 1979, was the worst hurricane to hit Dominica in living memory. Among all this carnage, one curiosity stood out – a yellow school bus was crushed beneath a falling giant Baobab. No one was in the... More
