Dominica

When you’re visiting a place known as “The Nature Island,” you can bet you’ll be in for a vacation that’s rooted in natural beauty. Travel to Dominica and you’ll see just what we’re talking about!

The island nation of Dominica (pronounced Dom-ih-NEE-ka) -- not to be confused with the Dominican Republic -- is located in the Lesser Antilles region of the Caribbean, north of the country of Venezuela and between the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. With its high, hilly rain forests, it’s the perfect place for plants, birds, and animals to thrive.

What to Do

As an island in the Caribbean, you’re sure to travel to Dominica to relax and rest on the beaches -- though there’s also a lot more to do. A number of whale species make the waters around Dominica their home, so a popular activity is to go whale watching and dolphin watching on a catamaran tour. Dominica also boasts more than 300 miles of walking trails, where you’ll get to see breathtaking waterfalls and active volcanoes.

Dominica is also home to one of the few remaining indigenous communities in the Caribbean, so it’s a great place to learn about the Carib culture and see the community’s crafts and culture.

And if your only goal when you travel to Dominica is to relax as much as possible, you’ll find spa and massage services dotted around the island -- giving you that dose of rejuvenation you’re seeking.

Where to Stay

It’s natural to want to stay near the beach -- or within view of it -- when you travel to Dominica, and the available accommodations can definitely make that happen. Hotels in Dominica each have their own unique charm; some offering private pools and spa facilities, others offering secluded privacy and personalized service. Many hotels offer dive trips, snorkelling, whale watching and other activities that will make your trip to Dominica even easier and more memorable.

What to Eat

Dominica’s cuisine is decidedly Caribbean, with a special focus on fresh and dried fish, often hidden inside “bakes” of fried dough. Stews and dumplings with a mix of vegetables, meats and fresh herbs are also common. Be adventurous and you’ll have an enjoyable experience!
