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


Amazing view of the capital city of Roseau in Dominica

Known as the Nature Island, Dominica is a paradise for outdoorsy travelers. But if you peer beyond the island nation’s beaches and lush rainforests, you’ll find a wealth of culture in Roseau, Dominica’s capital.

The town features an interesting blend of Creole and Caribbean architecture, as well as several old plantations.

Keep an eye out for handmade huts, called ‘Ti Kaz, that were built by the island’s indigenous people. (Dominica is the only island in the Caribbean where pre-Columbian Carib Indians still reside.)

What to do (Roseau, Dominica): Head to the Old Market, where travelers can pick up handmade crafts, fresh fruit, and other locally sourced goods. The place offers some heavy history as well: It was once the site for slave auctions.
