Connecting with your home country by telephone should be no problem at all while visiting the island of Dominica. Travelers will be able to pick up a phone and dial through to any part of the island, which is serviced by Cable and Wireless. Public phones are easily found all over the island.

You can make calls from the convenience of your room at most hotels and resorts. Making a local call should be relatively inexpensive, but vacationers should be aware of expensive surcharges that hotels impose for placing direct international calls. Check with your particular hotel to find out about their policies and charges for calling abroad. Dominica also has a number of pay phones where you can place both domestic as well as international phone calls.


You can make direct calls or use pre-paid phone cards at public phones as well as from phones in your hotel room. Calling cards are a great way to cut down on the costs of international phone calls and can be purchased in several denominations at a number of local shops, the Dominica post office, or at Cable and Wireless, which is located in the country's capital of Roseau and is open from Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Here, travelers can make telephone calls with a local calling card or credit card, and they can also send faxes.

To make a local call on Dominica, all you have to do is dial the seven-digit number from a local telephone. To place a call to any location outside of the island, you must have the specific country code. To call Dominica from North America, dial 1, followed by the country code, which is 767, and then the seven-digit number.

Keeping in touch with family and friends while enjoying your Caribbean vacation on the island of Dominica is as easy as pushing the right buttons on the telephone. To save money on your international calls, don't forget to purchase a phone card.
