Any one have any suggestions for private excursions in these ports?

Island tour on Dominica. Reyno or Beno come highly recommended. Ship tour is usually ok as well...but larger groups. Waterfalls, Emerald pool, Mr. Nice's Fruit stand...so fun!

Thanks for these - as we're going to be there twice (doing FLL-Manaus b 2 b) any off the beaten track recommendations?

I think you'll feel right at home in Dominica...Donna. It's the closest thing to Hawaii I've ever seen. The people are very friendly as well.

I enjoyed the zip line in St. Lucia. St. Barth's is a good place to walk around town. There is a beach at the end of town popular with the locals, but no bathroom there!

Our traveling companions are big on ziplining. Not sure I'm really up for that, though, and DH is height aversive. We'll most likely do some river tubing. St. Barths seems really expensive for any of the excursions I've been able to run down. We've booked a tour in St. Lucia with COSOL to the volcano and other sights.

Ginny and I booked a private tour in St Lucia. It actually was a small van with
a few other people. It was an island tour which stopped a "Jealosy" beach.
It also went to the Pitans, included a buffet of the local cuisine, and ended
with Soufriere the active volcano. It was great and very inexpensive. We are going to do it again!!!

Cosal St Lucia was the tour company. I think you'll have a great time.

I really dislike organized tours and rent cars even in bad driving places
like Martinique where I had little clue as to the road signs. Having said
that I really liked this guy and many well respected cruisers have given
their recommendation.

Here it is.... Peter doesn't know how to post links Wink

http://www.cosoltours.com/

You email him and then he meets you at the pier with a "Cosol" sign.... it costs $50 per person and includes lunch as well as a snack. Very extensive all-day tour and covers everything.

Dominica was awesome, get a guide to take you to the falls and pools as mentioned above. Well worth the hike and the tip. Lots of photo ops.

I just got back from a cruise that included both of the islands. I am so sad though cuz I wanted to buy a necklace on one of them. The style I was going to buy was everywhere on both islands... in the little markets. Would anyone be willing to pick me up one if I sent you a general discription and the money(for the necklace, shipping and your time)? It's a black conut shell necklace that has about 3 or 4 strings of them.. on some necklaces the shells are circles and other necklaces are triangles. I have picture of the one my neice bought I could send you. They are at almost every booth in the little markets. My email is: hottsk@msn.com. Thanks.
