ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Dominica is one of the hidden treasures of the Caribbean – an unspoiled natural paradise.
Tropical forests, home to over 1,200 plant species, cover two-thirds of the island. Rivers, lakes, streams and waterfalls are plentiful. Dominica is home to the eastern Caribbean's first UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Morne Trois Pitons National Park and its ancient forests.
Hiking, diving, snorkeling or whale watching are favorite pastimes. A hike to Boiling Lake, the second of its kind in the world, is worth the effort. After the hike, a visit to one of the mineral-rich hot springs is a great reward.
In the communities, the opportunity to meet some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean is another reason many choose to visit this picturesque island.
