Dominica, the Nature Isle of the Caribbean - Image

The Caribbean Island of Dominica is a perfect destination for those who wish to escape the cold and experience some form of adventure travel. The entire region is basically a giant nature preserve with very little development and an amazing amount of activities to engage in for people who are more mobility-minded during their holidays. 

Dominica's main feature is the World Heritage Site, Morne Trois Pitons National Park. This area of staggering beauty is home to a number of interesting sites such as the world's second largest boiling lake, a great many hot springs, more than 50 fumaroles, and five different volcanoes. As the region is still subject to volcanic activity, these naturally occurring elements, along with over 365 freshwater springs, have given Dominica its reputation as one of the greatest areas in the world to experience a unique tropical rainforest. 

Experienced or amateur hikers can explore the hills and valleys of the park. A great many marked trails have been cut and adventurers can spend days or hours on their excursions into the jungle. The island teems with life, and enthusiasts of rare flora and fauna will see a great many species that are exclusive only to this amazing part of the Caribbean.
