Purely Dominica

Purely Dominica

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.

Rainforest Adventures Dominica as this new rain forest adventure called the Gorge Zip Challenge, and it’s the highest zip line in the southern Caribbean.

The six-platform zip line course offers three adrenaline-pumping lines that glide through the rainforest canopy.

Visitors receive a safety briefing and orientation from the park’s top station, and then take a short walk to the first platform and a 125 ft zip line. The second zip line (250 ft) takes riders higher yet and is followed by a 40 ft rappel to the ground.

The highlight of the experience is the Gorge Zip Challenge: an 810 ft cable suspended over Breakfast River Gorge, a 350-foot cavernous drop flourishing with plants and waterfalls. Do you DARE cross it?

Gorge Zip Challenge in Dominica is definitely something that you might want to consider once you’ve decided to visit the Nature Island. It’s bout as close as you can get to actually flying. The views are incredible from the top of the park’s top station, and zip lining down over the gorge to the bottom is a very surreal experience.

Nestled in the rain forest (Morne Trois Pitons National Park) near Trafalgar Falls, a visit to Screw’s Sulphur Spa will bring relaxation, refreshment and take away five years of stress.

The place looks magnificent,with greenery everywhere, it’s like having your own private rain forest.

Soak in one the five natural pools, all your tensions and worries melt away.One can only handle this luxury for maybe an hour (USD$10.00 or XCD$26.00), then it’s time to get back to the real world.

Climbing back up to the road we were greeted in the bar/sitting area with fresh fruit. The staff is very efficient and very hospitable; from the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and part of the family.
