Default Has anyone toured the hot springs in Dominica

I'm considering pre-booking the excursion that includes the wellness village and hot springs in Dominica. Can anyone tell me if they went and if they enjoyed the excursion.

Thanks
2 months and 6 days till we sail

We did not do an excursion to the hot springs per se. However, we did grab a cab driver at the pier and we asked him to customize a tour. He took us to the botanical gardens, then to a waterfall then to the hot springs. We paid $40 a person for 5 hours and we had an absolute blast. The driver was wonderful and we learned a lot about the country and the customs. We truly enjoyed the day. Be aware though that at the hotsprings as well as at the waterfalls there are individuals who offer to show you the site, they act as though they are employees, but at the end they want to be paid $$$s. Our cab driver told us to tell them to go away, and we followed his advice but many others did not and they were unhappy to have to deal with the outstretched hands at the end of their visits to the sites. Hope this helps : )

I was thinking of booking this excursion also. It sounds wonderful, but was wondering why it mentioned that you needed to wear a dark swimsuit.
