One of the most naturally beautiful places in the world, this volcanically active island located in the lesser Antilles is known as the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean,” and is largely covered by thick rainforest and spotted with hot “sulphur” springs. Averaging only 50,000 visitors a year, tourism is still in its infancy in Dominica, where the principal economic generator continues to be in the agricultural sector. If you enjoy adventure and an active lifestyle, then Dominica may be for you. Although there are some great “boutique” style hotels, do not expect to find 5-star service or pampering on this island.
