Dominca for a first time solo cruiser

Jump to last reply

I am posting this question for a neighbour of mine who will visit Dominica for one day on a Caribbean cruise. She would prefer not to take a ship's shore excursion simply because these are expensive for what you get. After reading alot about the destination on Cruise Critic she is undeceided as to which sights she'd like to visit. Rouseau is one of the places she's also debating between Trafalgar Falls or Jaco Falls.

I have some questions:-

Which is the better waterfall to see Trafalgar Falls or Jaco Falls?
What are the must sees in Dominica?
Can fodorites recommend any reputable private companies for a shore excursion? (we did look at Cruise Critic and got a reply from one company but the reply was a little strange, at least IMO, I even started a thread in the lounge about this asking for advice)
Is it safe for a solo female traveller to hire a car and driver at the port? If so, what is the rate per day for a excursion?

Any advice on Dominica and how to help my neighbour will be appreciated.

Thank you.
