3 Rivers & Rosalie Forest is situated a mile or so inland from Rosalie,
on the east coast of Dominica.
Whether you arrive at one of the airports, or at the ferry terminal, we can make your life easy with our airport / ferry collection service: Roseau ferry terminal (45 minutes drive) EC$180 / US$70, and Melville Hall airport (DOM) (1 hour and 15 minutes drive) EC$200 / US$80. Alternatively there are normally plenty of taxis waiting, or if you arrive early enough, there are buses and hitchiking works well enough.
If you decide to rent a vehicle, or hire your own taxi, you need a vehicle with high clearance for our access road, a low car will touch the road, and some taxis will leave you 1 km away on the main road; check before you ride.
IF YOU TAKE YOUR OWN TAXI, AND IF THEY LEAVE YOU AT THE MAIN ROAD, WE MAY NOT HAVE A VEHICLE TO COLLECT YOU !!!!!
