We are making our first trip to Dominica for a 10 day trip in January 2013. We don't want to switch hotels a lot (if at all), but we do want to see the majority of the sights. We will have a rental car, and are not concerned by the road conditions since we live in a place ourselves that would terrify many to drive in.
We were thinking of staying midway up the West Coast, probably a 30 minute drive N of Roseau near Mero. Would this be a reasonable point that would make it doable to drive to most locations in a reasonable time?
We vacationed in Costa Rica last year and the roads we went on (dont tell our rental car company) were probably way above and beyond what most people would venture on. Dominica looks to be a lot easier, but it's hard to say never having been there.
We are not city people at all, and looking to mainly do hiking and exploration, maybe some fishing.
