Dominica is one of the most beautiful and least explored Caribbean islands. A secret kept well; the country has several pristine beaches, winding rivers, towering mountains, and lush green forests to offer. Away from noisy nightlife and fancy resorts, Dominica is a paradise for nature lovers and eco-tourists. The Dominican government believes in preserving and conserving the local forestry and wildlife more than any other islands in the region. Due to which, the nation is considered the most well-preserved spots in the Western Hemisphere. If you are a nature enthusiast, water activities lover, or a passionate shutterbug, Dominica is the most pristine destination to visit for your exciting expeditions.
Dominica doesn't speak much of its magnificence. The Caribbean island boasts nine volcanoes, three geo-thermally gorgeous marine reserves, three national parks, and 365 rivers. While travelling to the country, remember that there are no direct flights and you will have to do layovers. However, the absence of direct flights lets the majority of big birds fly freely. There are over 180 species of birds present on this island nation- from pelicans to parrots; you will find them all.
The best way to explore the volcanic craters, rain forests, and steamy slopes is by hiking. This is why international trekkers so highly rate the Waitukubuli National Trail. The trail measures 185kms from north to south and were designed by the local community to link up remote villages on foot.
There are several things that you will only experience in this island nation. If you are planning to visit Dominica anytime soon, consider insuring your trip with a travel insurance plan. It's always a good idea to travel prepared. Even though we stay cautious, things tend to go haywire, and you don't want to regret late. Hence, take the smart step now. Happy Travelling!
