If youre looking for an unspoilt natural paradise where the scenery is breathtaking, the surroundings are tranquil and the outdoor pursuits, both on land and in the water, are unbeatable, then a holiday in Dominica is the obvious choice.
Tucked away in the Caribbean between Martinique and Guadeloupe, it certainly isnt a destination on the typical tourist trail, but this is very much part of its magic and charm. This is not a place where you will find nightclubs, seaside resorts and international flights. Instead, accommodation in Dominica offers you the chance to truly reconnect with the natural world. Two thirds of the island is actually covered by tropical rainforest, so the first thing you should do is pull on your hiking boots and explore the rivers, waterfalls, mountain tops and volcanic landscapes. Famous spots like Trafalgar Falls, the wonderful Boiling Lake and the forests of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park are all unmissable. A holiday in Dominica would also be heaven for water babies. Stay on the surface in a kayak or explore the captivating depths by diving or snorkelling - the scuba diving here is genuinely world-class. And whatever activities youre taking part in, you will be welcomed here with open arms. The locals are warm and friendly, and their calendar is full of carnivals and celebrations with everything from Creole music to cricket on offer. And whether youre staying in an oceanfront villa or a rustic treehouse, there is accommodation in Dominica to suit all tastes and budgets. A holiday in Dominica is a real adventure!
