In between our jungle adventures in the Nature Island of Caribbean we explored Roseau, the quaint but vibrant capital of Dominica situated along its coast. We had a pleasant time walking around its narrow streets lined with colorful rickety wooden houses, buildings and shops. The vibe was very Caribbean with a hint of architectural touch of its former colonizers (French and British). Join us on our walk and be delighted by the burst of colors in this charming port city.
We started our walk in the Old Market located in a cobbledstone plaza that has been the heart of Roseau for 300 years. It has been a site of political forums, executions, slave market, etc. Today, it’s a marketplace for local crafts and souvenirs.
We then walked around the city aimlessly and enjoyed the colorful sights we saw at every turn as well as the friendliness of locals who would stop to ask us, “Is everything alright?” We guess that’s how they say hello.
We hope you enjoyed the colorful walk around Roseau with us.
