The Dominica Datasheet
Dominica is an English speaking Caribbean island in between Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Where you land - If you come here by boat you will touch down in Roseau, the capital of the island. If no one is coming to pick you up then you are going to need to take a bus to get to your destination.

If you come here by plane you will either touch down at Melville hall airport or cane-field airport. There are a lot of taxis/buses at the airport, they will take you to where you need to go.

Where to stay - Ok so if you are planning to come here and you don't have any relatives here, you are going to want to rent an apartment the best place for this is Picard, which is in Portsmouth. The reason for this is it has the best apartments as there is an American university which is located in Picard (ROSS). Which is also another good reason, there are a lot of students to try to game. Picard has a lot of student parties and hang out bars. It is the best place to stay hands down. An apartment would cost about $400 ECD a month.

Where to go - There are many sights to see and things to do here are some websites which show some of them. http://www.narakielsinn.com/fun-local-activities.html
http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g...inica.html

As for nightlife there are some clubs I recommend - Davos which is located in Glanvillia,Portsmouth. Big poppas on a Wednesday night is always popping. There may be student parties happening around, you would have to interact with the locals/students to try to find out date/times.

Girls - When trying to pick up local girls as a foreigner it helps a lot to have a ride. A transport will add to your presumed worth. I would not recommend trying to game locals or any girls down here via the internet, at least while on island.

Students - When trying to game students I find it a lot easier using night game as oppose to day game but then again it might be different for foreigners.

Spanish girls - Ok, 90% of Spanish women down here are gold diggers. If you are willing to spend a couple bucks you can get a lay almost like prostitution. It also helps to have a ride. That being said a lot of them are very sexy, 8s and up.

Cellphones/billing procedures - Well you can get a prepaid cellphone down here for as little as $99ECD which is about $37USD. With a prepaid cellphone you put the amount of minutes you are want to use via top-up or card. Top up is more common. You could also buy a postpaid cellphone which charges all of your calls and sends you a monthly bill, I don't recommend buying this unless you are down here long term. If you are going to buy a phone down here I recommend buying a Digicel phone (Digicel is a phone company) as I find that more women own Digicel phones.

Day game - To day game locals maybe the best place to go is actually the town, Roseau. Reason for this is because it is the most busy place on island with people moving up and down.

To day game students just go to Picard, go to one of the restaurants or chill out spots.

To day game Spanish women, try hitting up one of the Spanish bars. They stay open all day, also I should mention that most Spanish women down here speak little or no English. The more you flash expensive items the better. You may find them walking on the streets as well.

Night game

Night gaming locals as a foreigner you would want to hit up the clubs and bars or local events. Local events probably being the best option.

Students - On Wednesdays at Big Poppas in lagoon,Portsmouth there are always a lot of drunk students there. Tomatoes in Picard also has a lot of students there, they would most likely not be drunk here on a normal night. Picard has a lot of spots to hit up to meet students, just ask around. Student parties are always the best option.

Spanish women - Night gaming Spanish women is the pretty much the same as day gaming them.

Getting from place to place - Well Dominica is pretty small, you can mostly walk to where you have to go. But for long distances you will have to use a bus, just go to one of the bus stops ask the driver where he is going and board the bus.

Anything else you would like to know, I'll try to awnser.

Tourists are pretty much protected down here, but still probably don't flash items too much when you are walking the streets at night.

How would you get there by boat? I'm assuming a bigger island nearby with a bigger airport has a ferry?

I assume its very cheap based on the post about housing.

It says 1 canadian dollar = 2.62 East Caribbean dollars.

US dollars would be virtually the same.

RE: The Dominica Datasheet
Some more important information -

The time of year you come here is also very important, during the Christmas season, the creole season which is October - November and the carnival season which is February are great times to come down here. It's a completely different vibe.

A club I missed which is one of the biggest clubs on island is Krazy coconuts, it's located on the south side and always has big international, regional or local artists playing there.

@patron - We speak English mostly. The cost of living is probably lower than that of America.

What industries do expats work in on Dominica? Excluding gold-digging, so I guess I'm referring to expat males.

But what types of jobs are there?

Oil and gas? Waiting tables? Scuba instructors? Hotel managers?

By the way, great job on the datasheet. It seemed like yesterday when you said you were working on a dominica datasheet.

Thanks,

As far as jobs go, I'm not exactly sure. I would say there are a lot of jobs in teaching, carpentering, accounting and office jobs, Hands on technicians. But I'm not too sure about the types of jobs here, all the jobs you mentioned above are available here apart from oil and gas jobs.

Nice report. I've wanted to visit Dominica for years. I hear the scuba diving is some of the best in the Carribean. If coming for diving, do you still recommend staying in Picard?

Ok, if you are coming mainly for the diving I would recommend staying at the castle comfort dive lodge. Also I would say come down during dive fest, which is in july.

Dive Fest -All diving enthusiasts should head to Dominca for this one. Other than the obvious dive opportunities there are several seminars and workshops on a variety of topics such as underwater photography, testing out the latest dive technology and underwater treasure hunts amongst other things. There is lots to do for non divers as well such as wine and cheese cruises, whale watching, boat races and lots of dancing!

RE: The Dominica Datasheet
+1 from me for this solid intel from a local, I appreciate the dive links you provided, your island seems like it would be great place to chill out and dive for a few days or a week although I'm not sure if its big enough for an extended stay, or how good it would be for gaming the local women, so I have a few more questions:

Whats the party scene like? Since its British Caribbean, do the locals like dance hall as in Jamaica and Bahamas, do they like calypso like the Bajans or do you guys have your own unique scene there?

Since its a very small population there, are the local women keen on hooking up with foreign men? It seems like a place where "everyone knows everyone" so the local ladies may not be so easy, what do you think? The local women are majority Caribbean black right?

Spanish girls: I assume that they're not girls from Spain but rather chicas from near by Latin countries such as the DR, Colombia, Venezuela, etc, is this correct? Do they have legit jobs there or are they hookers?

Food: similar to Jamaica? conch, curry goat, jerk chicken, plaintains, ackee, salt fish?

Near-by islands: Have you been to Martinique, Guadeloupe, St Lucia, etc? If so, how did you get there, plane, boat?

Thanks man, you provided some great info on a little known island that, as far as I know, no one else on here has been to.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

RE: The Dominica Datasheet
Hey, thanks.

The party scene - Well we like dancehall and calypso but most of the youth down here like a genre called bouyon. It get's really heated and you might say it makes no sense really but it really pumps. We invented it down here and it has spread around the Caribbean and to some extent the world.




Oh I should mention carnival gets a lot more heated during the night.



Ok, well everyone from certain areas knows everyone. By that I mean if you go to the smaller villages then it's like that. But in the bigger spots, where people from all over the country come through daily like Roseau and kind of Portsmouth it's different. Local women will not shut you down for being a foreigner, only for lack of game.

Spanish girls : No mostly they come from Dominican Republic, Cuba and Venezuela although there are some from other places. A lot of them just open and run bars and shops, if not they are always in them but yes they do have legit jobs. A lot of them down here are doctors and such. They aren't quite hookers.

Food : We use a lot of ground provision in our local foods, yes all that stuff you called are used in some of out meals. Although if you don't like that stuff you could just buy some fast food from KFC or Subway. Subway will cost an arm and a leg and if you don't want any of the above you could go shopping and cook for yourself.

Near-by islands - Yeah, I've been to all those except St. Lucia. I went to Guadeloupe and Martinique by boat, which was about ECD$300 round trip. I say $300 but it might be more for people over 18 http://www.visit-dominica.com/querydetail.cfm?Id=263. I recommend going by boat if going to one of those islands, but for St. Lucia I would say go by plane. Saves time.

From what I understand, Dominica is one of a few Caribbean countries that offer citizenship through investment (economic citizenship). Any insights on this? Know anyone who has done it?

Yes, but I am personally against this for political reasons but any way if you are planning or if you wish to go down this route here is a website you should read up on. http://dominica.gov.dm/services/how-do-i...f-dominica

Quote:If you have less money to invest, Dominica is another tropical Caribbean destination to consider.

In all of Asia, in terms of freedom to move capital, taxation and residency requirements, Hong Kong would be the best choice.
Denny Ko, Henley and Partners

Not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, this island of just around 73,000 people has offered a citizenship-by-investment scheme since 1993. Among four package options, a single applicant investment requires just a $100,000 deposit to the National Bank of Dominica, the country's largest financial institution. The investment amount doubles for a family of four.

Applicants must be of "outstanding character," must wait "at least eight weeks" for approval and must have a "basic level" of English, according to Dominica's website detailing the citizenship path.

An added bonus: investors can stay in their home country for the mandatory interview provided they foot the bill for three members of the interview panel to fly to them -- the full cost of hotel, airfare, an unspecified per diem and an additional $3,000.

However, the lower investment hurdle, relative to St. Kitts and Nevis, only gives visa-free access to 85 countries.

More than 2,000 families have gained citizenship through the scheme, according to Henley and Partners.

Interesting, it says deposit, I wonder if you could ever get it out. Or it is basically lost.

Fate whispers to the warrior, "You cannot withstand the storm." And the warrior whispers back, "I am the storm."

Women and children can be careless, but not men - Don Corleone

I searched on this thread because I am looking into getting an easy second citizenship. I live in the USA, so this looks like a better option than many others.

What kind of investments are okay? How good are these investments?
