Commonly known as The Nature Island, Dominica juts up from the glistening waters of the Caribbean to serve as a beacon for world revelers and travelers seeking solace in a place that time has forgotten. One of the best-kept secrets of the Caribbean, the island is a verdant tapestry of lush rainforests, towering mountains, rushing rivers, welcoming waterfalls, and volcanic wonders—everything you need to rejuvenate your mind and body.

Resting in the heart of the Eastern Caribbean archipelago between Martinique and Guadeloupe, it's known officially as Commonwealth of Dominica. Which is about as official as things get on The Nature Island.

Whether you're looking for a rugged day of hiking, a heart-stirring day of diving, or just a lazy afternoon relaxing on a veranda surrounded by the sounds of birds, wind through leaves, and scenes unfound anywhere else, Dominica—and its people—await with open arms, restorative days, and relaxing nights. You could even come visit in October to immerse yourself in Creole Music with the return of the World Creole Music Festival in 2023.
