Spanny Falls, Dominica

(4.7/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Take a short hike up to the beautiful waters of Spanny Falls and cool off in the pools in a lush jungle setting. Set on private property, the falls' friendly owner will guide you to the first cascade. If you're feeling brave, haul yourself up the steep slope using the nearby rope to visit the second set of falls. If you can tackle this challenging climb, you'll see a much more impressive waterfall featuring a larger pool for a swim.
