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


well-being in Dominica

Dominica is no doubt one the last islands close to nature, that’s why it’s usually referred to as the nature island of the Caribbean. Whether you want to be by the sea, in the mountains or surrounded by rainforest.

Or maybe, you enjoy hiking, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, River Tubing or camping, you will find much to do in Dominica.

While more adventurous travelers may want to explore year round, the primary tourist season is from October through May when temperatures are warm and refreshing compared to the hot summers, and the cold winter months experienced by much of North America and Europe.

One of the most prominent natural wonders in Dominica is the newly constructed Waitukubuli National Trail. Starting at Scotts Head peninsula, a mecca for snorkeling and scuba diving, the trail is composed of 14 sections, running 115 miles south-north, bisecting the length of the island. Much of the trail follows existing 200-year-old walking paths of the Kalinago Caribs, as well as slave routes to sugar plantations. Along the way you’ll pass villages, home-stays and B&Bs. No one has yet hiked the entire trail – are you up to the challenger? It might take you two weeks.

Getting to the Dominica is an adventure all by itself. Although there are no direct flights from the US mainland, Canada or Europe, there are several island hub options with daily connecting flights. Visitors may also get to Dominica by ferry service from the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique and St. Lucia via the L’Express Des Iles ferry service.

You can learn more about Dominica by visiting discoverdominica.com or by ordering your copy of Dominica (Bradt Travel Guide), which is filled with excellent maps, descriptions of hikes, snorkeling, places to explore and dive sites.

Dominica independence

Happy 31st Birthday, Dominica!

Thirty-one years as an Independent nation may be considered as an insignificant stage in the life of any nation, but by this period we should have develop a basic concept as to the general direction in which we want to go as an island nation. We have not.

Today, as we celebrate the 31st anniversary of independence, we need to ask ourselves whether we have made the best use of political self-governance or whether we’ve squandered it? And if we’re to survive the next 31 years and beyond, our leaders must create a more vibrant economy. We need to also take advantage of the fact that our nature island has unique natural features which are in great demand worldwide and we need to come-up with new cost-effective ways to market that image.

Besides the fact we’ve occasionally slid and stumble along the path to development, Dominica is still one of the most peaceful countries in the world and one of the most naturally beautiful. Whether you believe it or not, we Dominicans enjoy a quality of life that is envy of many countries in the world.

Let’s use this 31st Independence anniversary as an opportunity to give thank to the Almighty for the blessings He has bestowed upon our land.

Finally, we at Dominica Weekly would like to extend happy 31st Independence greetings and best wishes to all Dominicans everywhere.
