Banking Churches Car Rentals & Buses  Builders Hospitals  Real Estate Tour Guides Architects

Banking
Each village has a Credit Union where you can do necessary banking including exchange of currency. For more complicated procedures there are 3 banks in Portsmouth. An ATM is located at the A & A grocery on the main road in Calibishie. Most North American and European debit cards can be used in this machine.
Before making a purchase with a Credit or Debit card ask as some merchants do not take credit cards. U.S. dollars are accepted at all businesses. The rate of exchange for U.S. dollars is about 2.67 and is fixed. EC dollars of course are accepted every where. Euros or Canadian dollars can be exchanged at any bank. Traveler's cheques should be converted at a bank as well.


Car Rentals- Buses
Pick up can be arranged at airport or at your accommodation. Some of the rental firms have a desk at the airport. There are taxis meeting most flights if you have not arraigned for pick up by your host. The cost into Calibishie village is about $35 U.S. dollars from Melville Hall airport.
If you plan to use local buses to get around the island the cost is very low. Look for an "H" on the license plate. They can be flagged by raising your hand as they pass. Be sure to check if they are going as far as you plan. They are a fun way to get around! The approximate cost from Calibishie Village to
Portsmouth is $5.00 EC.


Churches
Religion is an important part of the lives of most Dominicans. Although the Roman Catholic Church is the largest in Dominica, we have many other denominations to chose from, including Methodist, Baptist, Seventh Day Adventist, Church of God and Jehovah Witness. Each village holds regular services and are pleased to have visitors join in their worship. It is an experience not to be missed. Ask your host for times and details.
