My hubby and i did the boiling lake hiking trip which was recomended by our hotel host.
Arrangements were made the day before, we were told what time we should be ready as our tour guide would come to pick us up.
Thus is when we met our tour guide Nahjie, He was on time and our trip started it was about 30 minutes drive from our hotel to the point of trekking.
One important highlight here is if you’re not in good shape meaning health wise this trip is not for you.
The time spent on this trip app 8 hrs we are on the older side so it took us longer, however i must commend this young man on the great job he did in taking care of us through out the entire trip.
NAHJIE is a true professional and very dedicated in what he does not to mention very knowledgeable in what he does as a tour guide, darn his energy is like a young stallion.
He took time to guide and inform us of areas , plants , history etc.
We were running out of time and i was beginning to get worried but he assured me that if night step in and we are not through he would call for back up and extra lights , that at was a relief to my being..since we are 48 and 64.
Unfortunately we did not make it directly to the end of the lake , that where the water flows i think because it was getting late and we were more concerned getting back out to starting point, so we started trekking back out ahead of the two others.
It rained during that time so that made it even harder ,NAHJIE did explain to us though that after Hurricane maria in 20 17 the trail was ruined and nothing was done to maintain it. I must say for me is was rough trekking.
It was an experience and a great achievement. We did it and made it through safely with the help and guidance of this wonderful fella ( NAHJIE)
When we finally made it back to our starting point we were happy and felt a flash of relief.
Nahjie took us to get some thing to eat and back to the hotel.
We also had the pleasure of riding wit him back the the airport the following day.
My take on this review altogether is ,boiling lake is a wonder of the world I recommend you to see if you plan to visit Dominica, its a one in a life time thing to do.
Second please do not hesitate to take that opportunity to meet and allow NAHJIE to be your guide.
You sure would have a great time and memories of a life time.Dominica
