    Dominica, “The Nature Island,” delivers vacation experiences unlike any other in the Caribbean.
    Located south of Guadeloupe and north of Martinique in the Eastern Caribbean, this untouched island offers its visitors an array of natural habitats, including volcanic peaks, boiling waters and underwater champagne springs. Over two-thirds of Dominica is covered by tropical rainforest, delighting travelers with 350+ rivers, pristine waterfalls and unrivalled hiking trails.

    Dominica’s culture is full of Spanish, British, Creole, French and African influence, and combined with Carib traditions. The designated Carib Territory of the island preserves the population of pre-Columbian Carib Indians, also known as the Kalinago. Visit the reserve for an unforgettable cultural experience and local shopping. To feel as if you’ve been transported back in time, head to the capital, Roseau, where visitors can sightsee and indulge in delicious European and West Indian cuisine.

    When visiting Dominica, exploring the island’s natural beauty is a must. The Emerald Pool in the Central Forest Reserve is one of the most popular attractions, where a 20 foot waterfall descends into the sparkling water below. Roseau Valley is also full of adventure for nature lovers. Visitors can experience a variety of volcanic sulphur springs, the world’s 2nd largest boiling lake, and Trafalgar Falls, a twin waterfall that cascades from the mountains.

    One of the most unique events that Dominica offers it guests is its sea turtle nesting season. From March through October every year, people travel from around the globe to watch 4 of the 7 species of sea turtles visit Dominica’s shores and hatch their eggs. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience!
