Known as â€œThe Nature Islandâ€ and located between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Eastern Caribbean, the independent nation of Dominica (pronounced â€œDom-in-eek-aâ€) is the largest and most mountainous of the Windward Islands, encompassing an area of nearly 290 square miles. Of volcanic origins with mountains reaching heights of nearly 5,000 feet, rainforests that are considered among the last true oceanic rainforests in the world, more than 365 rivers, waterfalls, the second largest Boiling Lake in the world and pristine coral reefs, Dominicaâ€™s natural diversity is truly unique.
Dominica is also home to the last remaining settlement of the Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean â€“ The Carib Indians. A place where man and nature live in harmony, adventurers and nature lovers alike will revel in the Islandâ€™s eco-tourism options which include scuba diving, snorkeling, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding, nature tours, hiking/trekking, whale, dolphin and bird watching, sailing and fishing.
Dominica continues to be recognized for its attributes and responsible tourism efforts, including being the first country in the world to receive Benchmarking designation from the prestigious Eco-tourism organization Green Globe 21.
National Geographicâ€™s Center for Sustainable Destination ranked the island as the top sustainable island in the Caribbean and among the top ten in the world. Most recently, Dominica was recognized by Islands Magazine and was included in the 2007 Blue List for being a leader in responsible tourism and ensuring an environmentally and culturally sound island for future generations.
