Fun in the Caribbean: Best Things to Do in Dominica

citizenship by investmentWith lush mountainous rainforests, black-sand beaches, friendly locals, and rare indigenous animal and plant species, unspoiled Dominica is worthy of more than a day’s visit. This small island in the Lesser Antilles region of the Caribbean Sea lets you explore the beauty of nature, bringing you closer to your nature. A hiker’s paradise and a diver’s dream, Dominica offers excellent treats for the adventurous traveler.

You can book a vacation to discover the beauty of Dominica, but if you want to stay in the region permanently, you can take advantage of the country’s immigration by investment program. The program lets foreigners obtain a passport and citizenship within 6-9 months by making an investment, either by owning real estate or making a non-refundable payment to The Commonwealth of Dominica.

Here are some of the best things to do in Dominica, the Nature Isle of the Caribbean:

Trek to the Boiling Lake

Dominica is home to the second-largest boiling lake in the world. Situated in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, a World Heritage Site, the Lake is filled with bubbling water, enveloped in a cloud of vapor. Experts believe that the Boiling lake is a flooded fumarole—an opening in the earth’s crust which emits steam and gases. The trip to the lake can be strenuous, but once you reach your destination, you’ll realize it’s worth it.

Swim with the Whales

You don’t often see whales in the Caribbean Sea, but in Dominica, you can see—and even swim with them—year round. Home to different species of whales and dolphins, the country is known as the Whale Watching Capital of the Caribbean. Join organized whale-watching excursions to swim with the sea animals or watch them mate, calve, or tend their young.

Snorkel in a Glass of Champagne

It’s only in Dominica where you get to snorkel in a glass of champagne–but not literally. Champagne Reef is a snorkeling spot in the southern coast, which features geothermally heated waters. The underwater volcanic vents emit streams of bubbles, making you feel like you’re in a giant glass of champagne.

Dominica is beauty unspoilt. Book a vacation now or get citizenship by investing and discover why many have fallen in love with the island.
