The Commonwealth of Dominica—not to be confused with the Dominican Republic—is an active volcanic isle blanketed by rainforests. From afar, the mountains that tower 4,000 feet above the surrounding sea appear to touch the sky. Known as Nature Island, an abundance of natural attractions awaits within its 290 square miles. Extensive geothermal activity occurs above and below sea level.
Dominica’s Emerald Pool and Trafalgar Falls
Visit two of Dominica’s most popular attractions: Trafalgar Falls and Emerald Pool. Enjoy a 15-minute hike through the rainforest to the viewing platform for spectacular views of the waterfalls. Spot rare national birds like the sisserou and jaco parrots shaded by exotic tall trees.
