Trafalgar Falls, Dominica

It has been many years since I visited Trafalgar Falls, on the island of Dominica, but I remember it very clearly. The hike up through the jungle, the towering falls, and the cold water in which we swam. It was gorgeous, that huge, powerful waterfall nestled in the quiet of the jungle.

I've heard that it is less untouched now, with more signs of human traffic. I hate to think of that beautiful jungle magic interfered with, but I treasure the pictures of it still held so clearly in my mind. To me, Trafalgar Falls is still an untouched region, with only a slippery path up the slopes to reach it.

Could agree with you more about the falls. I spent five years on Dominica and loved every day.

I spent much of 5 summers in Dominica, and fully expected to live there eventually. It didn't happen that way, but I have a whole lot of fond memories of the place. I imagine it has changed tremendously since I was last there nearly 20 years ago.
