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

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


Fellow blogger Dan Tanner Just sent me an email about a story posted on CNN, with an Associated Press Story about Dominica entitled “Dazzling Dominica: Rugged Island Worth The Effort”. Dominica is slowly building a reputation as an one of the best eco-tourism and adventure destinations in the Caribbean

VALLEY OF DESOLATION, Dominica (AP) — As I picked my way over hot rocks and bubbling mud in the pouring rain, I realized Dominica was not for the faint-hearted.I was hiking to the Boiling Lake, a bizarre cauldron of steaming-hot water, 200 feet across, and one of the strangest sights on this rugged and beautiful Caribbean island.

The hike is a six-hour round trip that runs through dense rainforest and over mountain ridges before emerging in the Valley of Desolation — an eerie, treeless swath of volcanic devastation striped black and orange with mineral deposits and swirling with mist and steam.

There is so much to do on Dominica island, the journey will take a bit of effort on your part — but it’s worth all the effort.
