Dominica: The Nature Isle
Dominica, not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, is one of the larger islands in the Lesser Antilles but one of the least known in the Carribean. With two-thirds of its 289 square miles covered by tropical rainforest, several active and dormant volcanoes, black sandy beaches, rock cliffs and more mountains than people, Dominica is also an unspoilt paradise for adventurers who love to venture off the beaten path.
Come here to wake up to the sounds of hummingbirds in the morning.
To get lost on half day hikes in the jungle while searching for waterfalls and natural pools.
To take refreshing baths naked in the natural pools with not a single soul in sight. Just fishes and the odd scorpion.
To drink bush rum, some which are said to get rid of cancerous cells and reduce blood pressure.
To learn about the history and resilience of the Kalinago. If you're lucky like us you'd meet Chief Faustulus Frederick, past Carib chief, author and a key player in the fight for Dominica's independence.
To clear your mind and get yourself back.
To indulge in local culinary delight.
For authentic nature adventures. From canyoning to bird watching, horse riding and endless walks in the rainforest.
To make friends with strangers who invite you to stay in their homes expecting nothing in return. Dominicans make you feel at home in the world. Dominica is truly the Nature Isle!
