Is This Place Really the Caribbean's Best Kept Secret?

On a map, Dominica is looks like nothing more than a speck above St. Lucia and, in real life, or at least when it comes to travel planning, it may feel equally inconsequential. There are no direct flights here. Mention that you’re going to Dominica and many will ask if you meant the Dominican Republic. When you do finally step foot on the island – accessed via flying through San Juan, Puerto Rico – you’ll quickly understand that this long-forgotten isle is, however, much more than a speck. From the lush rainforest interior to sandy gold cliffs and sparkling waters, Dominica is a seldom discovered paradise. Here, a few can’t miss experiences:

Here you will discover freshwater lakes perfect for swimming, five volcanoes, hot springs and the stunning Trafalgar Falls. Despite the rich landscape, you can hike and swim in complete safety here – no dangerous animals or poisonous snakes inhabit the island.
