Things to do in Dominica – The nature island of the Caribbean

  1. Dominica, the nature island, is not easily accessible via the mainland United States. The airport is small and only propeller planes can land here.
  2. The island is beautiful and is the only Caribbean island to have a rainforest. It is known to have 365 rivers.
  3. The currency is East Caribbean Dollar (1 USD = 2.7 XCD). The USD has full acceptance, though.
  4. Kalalau is the national dish. Its a soup made from Dakshin, and I would recommend trying it out.
  5. Public transport is better than most other islands but is still limiting if your itinerary is jam-packed.
  6. There are two towns, Roseau and Portsmouth. I would recommend staying in Roseau if you don’t have a rental car since most tours, taxis, and buses depart from there.
  7. Most good activities are on the south side of the island. The south faces the calmer Caribbean sea while the north side faces a more turbulent the Atlantic Ocean.
