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.

  • Electricity: 230V, 50Hz
  • Times to Travel: Dominica is best visited during the mid-December to mid-April tourist season. The temperate winter climate and the cooler trade winds combined with the drier conditions make this the ideal time for a trip.

    Temperatures in Dominica can be quite hot throughout the entire year – the winters average about 85° F (29° C) while summers hover close to 90° F (32° C).

    The rainy season – July to November – brings significant rainfalls. Some regions of the island accumulate as much as 300 inches per year. In addition to the rains, there is a threat of flash floods. Dominica is also subject to the Atlantic hurricanes and tropical storms.
