Dominica is the undiscovered corner of beauty in the Caribbean islands we traveled to. We "discovered" so many small spots of untamed wild areas that you would think you were in the middle of the south american jungle instead of on a small island, then there was the seashore, black volcanic rock with the green sea on one side of the island and the blue sea on the other. The people were great, helpful, as curious about us as we were about them and willing to talk to you as a person and not an outsider.
This is a small map of Dominica, almost as small as the country which you can travel around in only 2-3 hours, maybe a little more if you stop to wave and honk at everyone, or let a lizard cross the road...

Visit the Pagua River and relax.

This is a pic out of my plane window as we are coming into land at the Marigot International Airport.
I believe the wing was only 50 or so meters above the treetops.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful in all aspects
  • Cons:Scary landing at the airport
  • In a nutshell:Go there.
