Everyone of us sometimes dreams about a lovely place where he or she could escape for a couple of days and have a wonderful time, enjoying every minute of life.

We often think that such a place is fantastic. But, incredible how it may seem, such place exists! Check it out and visit the fabulous island of Dominica!

Dominica is a miraculous island in the Caribbean Sea. Maybe, its geographical location somehow determines its natural uniqueness. When a tourist arrives to Dominica, he realizes that there are so many sights to see, that he or she doesn’t know where to look first.

First of all you think, of course, about warm sandy beaches and crystal waters. It’s the most common feature of our escaping fantasies…But it still doesn’t seem to be the main reason. Of course, you have a chance to enjoy yourself lying on the beach, but bear in mind the fact that it rains there very often. The climate is rather wet. Still, it won’t interfere with your sightseeing programme… Did I say “sightseeing”? Oh, I’d rather say “adventurous programme”!

Dominica is really the island of hiking. The fabulous rainforests are mysterious and full of secrets. Don’t forget to hire a guide in order not to get lost.

The waters of Dominica represent a mighty system and can be classified into 2 types: underwater and overwater. Try a river trip along the fast-flowing streams to see the magnificent waterfalls. Explore the underwater world by means of scuba diving which is mainly liked by most tourists. And of course, other water sports are also provided: tubing, kayaking, sailing, snorkeling in the solitary mountain lakes and rivers.

Speaking about mountains, it’s necessary to say that rock climbing is also available in Dominica. But will you be so risky as to try it? It could be really thrilling and adventurous.

If you prefer more quiet and safe way of exploring the island, you have a unique chance to see mostly all types of the island’s terrain in Cabrit’s National Park, from rainforests to swamplands and volcanic sands, all these can be found walking around the Park for a few hours.

But the Boiling Lake of Dominica, the second largest of its type in the world – that is more unique that the various types of terrain! A vacationer can also have a chance to admire the bright wonderful flora of the island, which is really worth seeing. A tourist is sure to be fascinated by the rare plants and bushes.
The fauna of Dominica is as rich as the flora, but whales and dolphins are to be mentioned separately. The water trips aimed at whale and dolphins watching are highly popular. It can’t leave you untouched! This entertainment is adored by tourists.

Dominica’s nature also reveals itself in the regional cuisine. It can include fresh fish or root vegetables. But could you risk tasting the alcohol sea weed drink? You may try it, just for a thrill.

Ten reasons why Dominica’ nature is the richest in the Caribbean are not the limit. The nature always has its secrets which can be revealed rather spontaneously. Come to Dominica not once, but several times and be sure that you’ll find out new secrets each time. That is the fanciest feature of the nature of Dominica.

The idea of an extreme activity takes on a new meaning, when it comes to a Dominica vacation.

Would it be taking a walk on the beach? Small Chance. Eating lunch delivered poolside? Maybe. Hiking into gorges and across valleys, climbing up to 4,000 foot mountains? Definitely!

Dominica is for people who need sweat and grit in their tropical vacation.” – Outside Magazine.

But beyond the sunning and swimming and the usual surf-side water sports, Dominica offers a number of activities that will test your strength, stamina and stomach. Most of these adventures are not for kids, and it’s best to be fairly physically fit. But if you’re brave enough, you may just find yourself pushing your limits.

Dominica, a tropical rain forest island, has seven active volcanoes, mountains with elevations of nearly 5,000 feet and more than 300 sources of water, including Boiling Lake, billed as the second-largest hot spring in the world. Over the years, the water has carved hundred of canyons into the rock, some reaching 200 feet long, that Richard Metawi, the owner of Extreme Dominica, calls “almost cathedral-looking.” And the only way to get inside is to go canyoning: a combination of hiking through the island’s verdant forest, rappelling down waterfall walls and plunging into canyons filled with crystal clear water, all while wearing a wet suit, helmet and harness.

Canyoning in Dominica

Extreme Dominica’s canyoning tour ( $150 a person) takes three to four hours. Though there is no official certification, all participants receive training before the expedition begins. Previous canyoning experience is needed for a more advanced trip, like one that includes an overnight stay and a 270-foot waterfall.

So get your blood pumping and make your next exotic vacation a Dominica vacation – one you will never forget!
