One of the famous islands in the Caribbean is called Dominica, or officially called the Commonwealth of Dominica. It is bordered by the Caribbean waters, with the islands of Guadeloupe in its north and Martinique in the south. Its capital is the city of Roseau.
With “Nature Island of the Caribbean” as its nickname, Dominica is believed to be the most pristine and beautiful island of all the Caribbean islands. Seemingly an untouched paradise, the country boasts of its rainforests, lakes, springs, waterfalls and parks. Majority of the island is composed of mountains with very rich forests.
The country is home to a number of rare plants and animals (some are going extinct already) and some can only be found in the island. Aside from that, the country is a nest to the world’s 2nd largest boiling lake which is one of the main tourist attractions in the country. Moreover, there has been ongoing volcanic activity throughout the years which makes the country’s land mass continue to grow and expand.
Dominica serves as a habitat to a large number of cetaceans. Some of these species in the country’s waters include dolphins (and its different kinds), sperm whales, and killer whales. Whale watching is believed to be one of the keys in the country’s growth in tourism as people from different parts of the world go to Dominica for its dolphins and whales.
The country enjoys a tropical climate with hot and humid temperatures. However, it is a region quite prone to occurring hurricanes and tropical storms.
