Papillote Tropical Gardens#3 in Best Things To Do in Dominica
If you traveled to Dominica in hopes of catching a glimpse of rare plants or wildlife, look no further than the Papillote Tropical Gardens. Spread across 14 acres, the gardens are located just before the trailhead to Trafalgar Falls, making them an easy stop on the way to or from this popular attraction.
After arriving, guests have the option of meandering the garden themselves or taking a guided tour. Past visitors insisted the best way to experience the gardens is by eating an outdoor lunch at the nearby restaurant before embarking on the guided tour. If you have extra time, take a dip in the hot pools that punctuate the property.
The gardens are open from November to August from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. A guided tour of the Papillote Tropical Gardens costs around EC$27 ($10) per person, plus an additional EC$2.70 (around $4) if you plan on soaking in the hot pools. A taxi is the most reliable way to get to the gardens, but minibuses also often make the trek. For more information, visit the gardens' website.
