Discover Dominica Authority has launched its summer campaign, ‘Meet Me In Dominica, Summer 2017’.

The campaign invites the region to the Nature Island of the Caribbean for a summer of adventure, nature and events for singles, couples and families.

Dominica’s Tourism Director, Colin Piper remarked that “Dominica is the destination of choice when thinking of adventure, and with 2017 labelled as the Year of Adventure, Dominica has positioned itself to embrace visitors from the region and beyond for an unforgettable experience in Dominica”.

He further commented that “collaboration is key in the sustainability of tourism, as such a number of properties and tour operators have come onboard with the DDA, to offer exciting specials and activities all in an effort to ensure that every day of your vacation is a day spent outside enjoying the Nature Island.”

The Summer Campaign runs from June 1 – August 31, 2017.

Marketing of the campaign has commenced throughout the region with the major component being digital. “With our consumers seeking up-to-date and immediate information, our digital components of the campaign will seek to strategically target the right audience”, Piper stated.

Meet Me In Dominica, Summer 2017 comes on the heels of a successful Jazz ‘n Creole Festival held in Dominica over the last week, and opens up the doors to Dominica’s World Creole Music Festival to be held from October 27-29, 2017.

    Then when I get to Dominica, the drains in Roseau are dirty and stinking and garbage has not been picked up for days, because the trucks are in the repair shop and everywhere I go, I hear Labor is working, but they can’t even pick up garbage regularly. Then when I get back to Barbados, I tell all my friends and they decide that they won’t waste their time and come to Dominica, unless it’s some CARICOM MEETING at Fort Young Hotel, where we drink our rum and accomplish nothing of significance.

    Another “Dunce Cat Idea,” that will go nowhere. I checked LIAT prices recently and they had a round trip special of US $187.00 from Barbados to Dominica. So If I add US $200.00 more to that price, I can fly to NY and back to see family, shop and do so much more. Unless I really love Dominica and want to do something totally different, all roads lead to North America for summer. Inter Caribbean travel is a deal breaker for those who really want to travel more frequently throughout the region. Add to that, I have no clue if my luggage will arrive with me, or if I will be forced to buy some short pants and T-Shirts to wear while I’m in Dominica, unless I want to wear the same outfit for one week straight, that I left Barbados with.

      Good point! No offence but I am a Dominican living in Dominica but prefer to spend time in the French islands like Martinique, that is more developed, has more to offer and is cheaper with its Euro. The offering in our shops reminds me of the old Iron Curtain countries, poor quality and limited. Often you can not even buy a bottle of Coca Cola and our own water is more expensive Sorry but that is how it is.

    Please, please keep the garbage trucks up and running.

    The sight and smell of garbage from New Town to Scotts Head over the past three weeks, before it was picked up finally on Saturday night, was disgusting and appalling.

    Let’s keep the nature isle natural.

    Yes, come see all we have to offer! Dominica is a true gem, beautiful and unspoilt.

      You forget the garbage littering the place. Man is taking big in Russia but can not even manage to keep this little country clean. Basics first Mr. Skerrit, basics first.

    We do need more of our fellow island peeps to visit our place. Most opt for a European or North American vacation with the idea that all the islands are the same. In fact, they’re all unique, but Dominica has this special magic!

    I encourage my Caribbean neighbours to visit, #MeetMeInDominica!

    With the Dive Festival and all the others during the summer, plus the hiking and beach activities, it’s kind of hard not being home! Because of the May 16th #Dominica campaign, I fell in love with the island again. Beautiful as ever! I’ll surely be there this summer to experience the land of my birth.

    Very good effort Colin but please tell u s how the visitors are supposed to get here? Ironically you make your press release on the very day LIAT pilots announce industrial action. We ourselves know that airport at Melville Hall is less serviceable during this period because of weather disruption (rain & winds) because of runway restrictions. Yes it is good to be optimistic but we should be realistic at the same time. Good luck.

    Great initiative!
