Vacations in Dominica

Dominica

Escape the Crowds in the Natural Caribbean

Dominica Overview

Dominica's numbers look good. Mountains rise to almost 5,000 feet above sea level; lush rainforests cover 60 percent of the island; an 115-mile hiking trail runs the length of the island. There are three national parks, one boiling lake, 365 rivers – and too many natural waterfalls to count. The year-round air temperature hovers between 75 and 85 degrees and the ocean is a pleasant 80 degrees. It all adds up to a destination made for adventure seekers and nature lovers. The surrounding waters are home to pristine coral reefs, and the lush mountains and valleys provide a welcome respite from civilization.
