|Subject: Re: Dominica|
Its not too much of an experience in relation to time but I spent a few
hours on Dominica courtesy of a cruise stop in 1995. Beautiful island -
mountainous, dense rain-forest foliage, little tourism. It is not a
huge cruise port nor are there extensive facilities (hotels, et al)
to support tourism which is a plus for getting a true Caribbean experience.
The small capitol of Rosseau is just what you imagine a Caribbe island
'city' should be. For a natural history buff this seems to be a great
island to explore both for marine life and inland rain forest. There
are hiking trails throughout the island with a few guest houses inland to
lodge at. Be prepared to get rained upon!
Dominca has a strong cultural heritage as well with a 'cultural' center
that performs their historical dances and music.
