Dominica — Dominica, the sparsely populated Lesser Antilles island between Guadeloupe and Martinique, lacks the mega-resorts that dominate other Caribbean islands. Tropical forest covers two thirds of the island, with mountainous terrain intersected by waterfalls and thermal springs. Far better known for hiking and diving than for beach activities, the 290-square-mile island is a paradise for nature lovers.

Why Go

For adventures in the untouched wilderness, top-notch scuba diving opportunities, and the World Creole Music Festival.
