Dominica is an island of breathtaking natural beauty with crater lakes and waterfalls, forests and gorges, many with evocative names like Boiling Lake and Valley of Desolation. Offshore, there are coral reefs teeming with fish of all colours, shapes and sizes to amaze swimmers, snorkellers and scuba divers. You are also welcome to visit the last surviving community of Carib Indians, the original inhabitants of the entire Caribbean, who still follow the old ways - fishing, carving and basket-making. This lush island is also right on the whales Caribbean migration path so be sure you take a boat trip out to spot them on their way north. And, even if you do not see whales, there are plenty of playful dolphins that usually tag along in the boats wake.
