I am a lady in her early 50's - but adventurous! I have been thinking about visiting Dominica for a few years. Finally I've decided I would like to go towards the end of October and also be able to attend the Creole Festival.. I have looked at tripadvisor and also purchased a travel book.. but still can't decide what parts of the island I should stay at. I would love to hike, snorkel, hot springs and relax. I am planning on going for about 2 weeks and want to spend approx $80-$115 per night, probably in 2 or 3 different areas. Am thinking about Narakiel's Inn in Roseau and also somewhere in Calibishie - but I believe these are on the same side of the island, and I've read that I should also stay on the west side. Also, should I stay closer to the airport the first part of the trip? Sorry for the long-winded question, but any help would be appreciated.
