Dominica’s Boiling Lake was recently named as of Lonely Planet’s 10 Great Caribbean secrets. One of the many hidden experiences that deliver unbeatable trips in the region.

The Caribbean is not all just yachts and cruise ports (or souvenir hassle).

Dominica’s Boiling Lake is one of the Caribbean’s best destinations for rugged adventures, mountainous Dominica sports an incredible hike.

It is a tough six-mile path clinging to narrow ridges of the “Valley of Desolation.” The destination? Boiling Lake, a 207-foot-wide lake that is veiled in steam, with bubbly burps on its greyish surface. The valley is the remnants of an 1880 volcanic eruption. Expect to get dirty.
