tips & insights

Nightlife and fine dining

Beautiful beaches


What Dominica offers

You're in heaven if you love to involve yourself directly with nature.

Rainforest hiking trails

They take you through the rugged interior mountains of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. They are covered with lush tropical vegetation. You see stunning Trafalgar Falls, the astonishing Boiling Lake (heated by underground volcanic activity), and other natural surprises. It's like exploring the Lost World.

Diving and snorkeling spots

Dominica has many underwater treats and each is uncrowded.
