Dominica is perhaps the lushest, greenest, and most unspoiled of the major Caribbean islands. Go here to commune with nature, whether hiking the rainforest trails or exploring the undersea wonders off Dominica's spectacular coastline. Some of the highlights include the arduous hike to the Boiling Lake, the twin Trafalgar Falls, and the diving around Champagne, where undersea volcanic gas vents and hot springs make the water shimmer with heat and sparkle with thousands of bubbles.
