My fiancee and I are going to be spending our honeymoon in Dominica for 11 days in July. We're planning on staying in two different hotels on opposite sides of the island. Right now we're looking at Manicou River resort on the Caribbean side and Rosalie Bay or Bana Lama Eco Villa on the Atlantic side.
One of the problems, though, is that a lot (but by no means all or even most) of the places we want to see visit in the southwest and the spots we're looking at seem pretty far from that area, especially considering what we've heard about driving times on Dominica. (We'll be renting a 4x4 for the trip)
What I'd like to know is, what kind of drives would we be expecting, and should we be reconsidering where to stay? Most of the places we looked at in the southwest didn't seem to be the sorts of isolated-in-the-middle-of-nature locations we were looking for.
