WELCOME TO DOMINICA
by BRUK DIAMOND

As we embark upon our safari tour throughout the beautiful island of Dominica, please have your cameras out and ready to take pictures of a country dominated by towering mountains and rain forests, crisscrossed by rivers and waterfalls. 

Dominica is perhaps the most naturally beautiful and different of all the Caribbean destinations. It is located mid-way down the chain of Caribbean islands , between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. The island is sparsely populated with around 70,000 people inhabiting its 289.5 square miles, with a significant portion of its population living in and around the capital city, Roseau. Dominica is famous for its tropical rainforest, and its 365 rivers and waterfalls which result from high rainfall . In addition, its volcanic origins manifest themselves most noticably in the Boiling Lake (one of the largest of its kind in the world). Moreover, it is widely acknowledged to be both one of the best dive sites and the whale watching capital in the region. Agriculture is the mainstay of the island’s economy, with bananas being the main crop. 

Dominica was the last of the Caribbean islands to be colonized by Europeans due chiefly to the fierce resistance of the native Caribs.  The original Carib name for Dominica is Waitikubuli, and many of the villages still retain (or at least know) their Carib name. English is the official language of Dominica; however a large portion of the population speaks Kwéyòl, which is based primarily on French and Carib vocabularies and a syntax burrowed from a variety of West African indigenous languages. A few Northern villages use a distinctive English dialect called Kokoy.

                 Everywhere you go, Dominica’s french history is evident, even in its music. Dominica is home to many talented artists such as ♫ Hunter, ♫ WCK, ♫Tripple Kay, ♫ The Wizzard, and ♫ Young Bull. Dominica is popularly known for the World Creole Music Festival which occurs annually in November.

                 As we conclude our tour, we clearly see Dominica offers ‘a once in a lifetime’ opportunity to experience the last spots on earth, where nature is so unchanged, unspoiled and flourishes in abundance.
