What you need to know before traveling to Dominica

The island of Dominica is between the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Part of the Lesser Antilles, this island is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. Unlike many islands, it has a plentiful supply of rivers and lakes. All 10 of the country’s Parishes touch the sea. Many have internal water sources. The Indian River flows into the ocean at Portsmouth. This is where you can visit the famous Emerald Pool and Boiling Lake. Both are part of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. You may want to dive in the coastal waters or wander around the island. There are in fact 4 different vegetation zones. This is a lush and often mountainous land.

The capital of Dominica is Roseau. It is a populous city in St. George Parish. It is easy to locate a Dominica hotel in this city and its suburbs. From here, you can arrange a trip to the Morne Diabolitin National Park. You can also wander the streets admiring the Old Market Plaza, Fort Young, The Dominica Museum and the J.W. Edwards Building. It has a stone base but the 2nd floor has wooden paneling. You may prefer to relax in the Botanical Gardens or pay a visit to the renowned Valley of Desolation. On your agenda must be the famous Cabrits National Park. This includes both a herbaceous swamp and a marine park.
