There are so many things we love about Dominica it’s hard to pare them down to eight, but here goes:
#8: Start with canyoning in some of the lushest gorges you’ve ever seen. #7: Then grab a bush rum, cane liquor mixed with local herbs. #6: When you’re ready, the hike to Boiling Lake awaits. #5: And you can find more amazing hikes pretty much anywhere you go on the island. #4: Many of these hikes lead you to mystical waterfalls. #3: And ditto that for hot springs. #2: The people here in Dominica are hands down some of the kindest and warmest hosts you’ll find anywhere. #1: And finally, number one: Nothing can prepare you for seeing sperm whales up close. Dominica is the only place on Earth where they live year round, which gives you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience these amazing marine mammals out in the wild.
These are just some of the reasons we love Dominica. As soon as you get here, you’ll find your own.
