Dominica, West Indies
Dominica, not to be confused with the Spanish-speaking Dominican Republic, lies between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Known as the "Nature Island of the Caribbean", Dominica is the undiscovered, uncrowded, off-the-beaten-path hidden gem with stunningly beautiful and primordial nature that many hope to discover and explore.
Waitukubuli was the name given to the island by the indigenous Amerindians, the Kalinago. It means "tall is her body," and the moment you land here you will understand why. Dominica is the youngest island in the Caribbean and offers unspoiled, raw nature to visitors. The island, formerly a British territory, became independent in 1978 and remains a member of the British Commonwealth and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States.
Dominica has a warm tropical climate. Average daily temperatures fluctuate between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Dominica’s verdant greenery is fed with regular servings of rain. Although the official rainy season is from July-October, expect what is locally known as “liquid sunshine” at any time!
