Dominica, Dominica

Sparsely populated, Dominica is a vibrant blend of European and African cultures, and most notably, it’s home to the Caribbean’s only remaining population of pre-Columbian Carib Indians. Much of this tropical island is protected under national park status, making for an unspoilt natural paradise. There are 365 rivers, nine sharp-peaked volcanoes, the world’s second largest hot springs, black and white sand beaches, and ancient forests and national parks – including the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site. Dominica tempts nature lovers of every ilk with its world-class diving, lush hiking trails, mellow rivers for kayaking, rare birdlife and secluded beaches.
