Dominica is a mountainous Caribbean island of the Lesser Antilles in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. It lies between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Marie-Galante to the north and Martinique to the south. Dominica is 29 miles (47 km) long and has a maximum breadth of 16 miles (26 km)
This wonderful island boasts natural hot springs and tropical rainforests. Morne Trois Pitons National Park is home to the volcanically heated, steam-covered Boiling Lake. The park also encompasses sulphur vents, the 65m-tall Trafalgar Falls and narrow Titou Gorge.
To the west is Dominica’s capital, Roseau, with colourful timber houses and botanic gardens.
The island has two airports, Melville Hall Airport in the north and Canefield airport in the South. Since these are not international airports, it is necessary to take a connecting flight from a nearby island such as Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, Barbados, Antigua or St. Martin.
