Dominica is a verdant jewel in a sea of jewels, and it proves that every Caribbean country is unique. It is home to some of the most spectacular mountains in the Caribbean. It is the last stronghold of the native Kalinago people. It is also one of the most special ecotourism destinations in the region, with a trail that runs the length of the island, and includes attractions of both sea and peaks. That being said, this is a small economy, and one threatened by rising sea levels and the increasing intensity of Caribbean storms. Be sure to travel responsibly in Dominica so that your travels can help its people develop ways to survive and thrive in the new world of climate change.
