Cel­e­brat­ing its 40th An­niver­sary of In­de­pen­dence on Novem­ber 3rd 2018, Do­minica (Dom-in-eek-a) is a haven for ad­ven­tur­ous trav­ellers, of­fer­ing hik­ing, cul­tural fes­ti­vals and ex­pe­ri­ences, div­ing and wa­ter­sports, whale or dol­phin watch­ing along with ex­cit­ing canyon­ing ad­ven­tures back­dropped by na­ture’s finest land­scapes. Known as ‘The Na­ture Is­land’, Do­minica’s trop­i­cal rain­forests cover twothirds of the is­land and home to over 1,200 plant species and a plethora or wildlife. The vol­canic to­pog­ra­phy means there is ex­ten­sive geother­mal ac­tiv­ity, even un­der­wa­ter, which makes Dom­in­cia a haven for ad­ven­ture divers and hik­ers alike. Do­minica is also home to the Eastern Caribbean’s first UNESCO World Her­itage Site, the Morne Trois Pi­tons Na­tional Park, and the Caribbean’s long­est walk­ing and hik­ing trail, the ‘Waitukubuli Na­tional Trail’, which ex­tends across the length of the is­land.
