Dominica is located in the Eastern Caribbean between the French Islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Known as the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean, Dominica is filled with lush rainforest, countless waterfalls and is home to the world’s second largest boiling lake—the world’s largest is located in New Zealand. Situated in the Morne Trois National Park, the Boiling Lake is constantly enveloped in a cloud of vapour and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With such natural lushness, it’s no wonder that Dominica has an agriculture-based economy.
Most residents speak English, otherwise French and Antillean Creole are commonly spoken. Dominica gained political independence from Great Britain relatively recently, in 1978.
While it may not boast the sandy beaches of other Caribbean countries, Dominica is host to volcanic peaks and numerous hiking trails for the adventurous. For those seeking a laid-back experience in the Caribbean, Dominica is the perfect location as it is unsullied by large chain hotels and restaurants. For those seeking to invest, Dominica offers the opportunity to invest in real estate and the tourism sector has notably been gaining momentum in recent years.
