Dominica’s ‘greenness’ has once again attracted international attention with ShermanTravel naming the island as its top “Caribbean ecotourism destination.”

This comes on the heels of Yahoo! Travel naming the island among 10 countries branded the “world’s best tropical destinations both near and far”.

In describing Dominica the ShermanTravel article stated, “….combined with some of the Caribbean’s best diving, and most pristine rainforests – where superb hiking trails lead to an eerie boiling lake, gorgeous waterfalls, and more – are what make the island such an ecotourist haven. It’s especially easy being green here since, at the end of the day, you can ease your tired muscles in the island’s natural hot springs and stay in secluded rainforest lodges, suffused by the sounds of the jungle.”
