The Nature Island of the Caribbean
Dominica, not to be confused with the more developed Dominican Republic, is an unspoiled "off-the-beaten-track" paradise for nature lovers and adventurers. Dominica is located between the island of Guadalupe and Martinique in the Lesser Antilles.
Stunningly beautiful, the uncommon Caribbean island features: Jurassic nature, the World's 2nd largest boiling lake, active volcanoes, natural hot spas, the longest continuous hiking trail in the Caribbean, pristine coral reefs that provide a top ten snorkeling and diving destination, and the world's only year-around resident sperm whale population. Dominica is also designated as one of the "World's Best Ethical Destinations".
Waitukubuli was the name given to the island by the indigenous Amerindians, the Kalinago. It means "Tall is her body", and the moment you land here you will understand why. Dominica is the youngest island in the Caribbean, and offers unspoiled raw nature to visitors. Volcanic peaks dominate the landscape and tropical rain forests cover two thirds of the island. Soak in natural hot springs, swim in secluded pools at the bottom of amazing waterfalls and hike on over 300 miles of trails in pristine rain forest jungle. Hikers come for the world–class hiking on the Caribbean's longest trail. Divers come to explore one of the top five diving destinations in the world. Other visitors come to enjoy “Nature at its best”.
