Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.

Archive for the ‘Ecotourism’


In Dominica and in most of the other Caribbean islands, whether volcanic or coral, is blessed will rich soil. Mountains, valleys, sides of the road, even in backyards gardens, show trees that represent the bounty of the “exotic” nature of the island – Breadfruit, guava, mangoes, lime, grapefruits, oranges, pineapple, cherries just to name a few. Cattle, pigs, chickens roam freely in the grasslands, rivers, reefs, and seas teem with fish and crustaceans. The road to environmentally friendly and organic living was already paved for us, but by the way we’re continuing to destroy what’s wild it will be soon all gone.

We have to stop importing process foods and continue with the old traditions left by our ancestors, who understood the harmony of nature is our survival. We must ensure that our lands and waters are kept free of destructive, non-degradable rubbish and pesticides. I’ve no doubt that environmentally-friendly tourism can provide a long future, rich in health and wealth, for us island people

So are you in need of abit adventure, come discover Dominica and defy the everyday.

Here are some of the Eco-Resorts and Adventure Tours I strongly recommend that everyone should experience on the island.

Jungle Bay Resort & Spa

Since opening in March of 2005 Jungle Bay has attracted travel writers from many leading publications such as Healing Lifestyles & Spas Magazine, Outside Magazine and Men’s Journal.

The project’s overall concept, architectural design & planning, construction techniques and operating philosophy were the brainchild of Samuel (Sam) Raphael. Jungle is base on a principle of fostering social and economic development in a developing rural economy while preserving and enhancing the culture and the natural environment. Jungle Bay site was purchased in 1997 and entails 55 acres of beautiful scenery. The architectural design, permitting and project financing phase lasted until August 2000 when physical construction began. Jungle Bay is truly an Eco traveler’s paradise and an Exotic getaway. Not only to tourist, but also Dominican nationals as well. For this reason Dominica weekly gives Jungle Bay four thumbs up. On site/ Off Site Activities -Yoga – Spa Treatments – Mountain Biking – Snorkeling – Sea Kayaking – Hiking Wedding Escape and Honeymoon Escape packages are available.
