    Advertisements



    hello everyone...

    planning another trip to my beloved dominica, then saint martin, then anguilla, and finally st. bart's. a few questions please....

    1. after arriving at the airport, is there still cheap transport that will get you to portsmouth via crap van/bus? i want my wife to experience sitting in a van with 20 dominicans and no a/c for 1.5 hrs.

    2. if i have pity for her and choose to just hire a car, how much would it cost to get to portsmouth, is it still $25 per person or can i get a deal somewhere?

    3. any way i can get a SIM card to use on my cell phone while in portsmouth? i will be there for 3 glorious days.

    4. any newer hotels in the portsmouth area, or should i torture her with a standard room at PBH?

    5. is Pai-Ho Still open in Roseau?

    6. would u guys recommend flying on carribean star or liat (much cheaper) to get to SXM from DOM?

    thanks everyone for answering my Qs, you all will be well rewarded.

    haha, hire that one dude, Max. He's always your friend until he gets your money in his dirty paws. Drives like a maniac too on the "twisties" so your wife can get the whole total experience. Have fun in jurassic park.

    cool

    Hey Sukh, its great that you are back to visit. I sure hope to get back to Dominica for a visit eventually.

    As a visitor you'll only have access to the airport taxis. They pay the airport a yearly fee so they get to be the only ones who pick people up at the airport. You'll probably have to pay somewhere near $20US per person to get to Portsmouth. For as long of a drive as that is, its really not a bad price (compared to taxi prices in the States). Most of the vans now have AC though. Too bad your wife won't get the same experience you had....but isn't that the way it is supposed to be?

    Remember that the University bought out most of PBH. I'm not sure how much of PBH still exists. Stay at the Picard Beach Cottages right next door. They are nicer and right on the sand. I can't believe you are staying in Portsmouth. You could stay in Roseau at one of the several hotels there. You could also try Jungle Beach Resort (new) or the Wilderness Resort in the mountains.

    A SIM card for 3 days? good luck...

    Either Caribbean Star or Liat are fine airlines. I've been on both and had no problems.

    Have fun!
