Dominica Hotel and Travel info

Dominica Hotel List


The first thing you'll notice about Dominica (pronounced Dah-min-EE-ka) is how intensely green the island is.  Lush, steep-sided peaks rear up 4700 feet to meet cloud-capped summits that receive enough heavy rainfall to feed hundreds of mountain streams.  These in turn nourish the majestic rain forest vegetation that covers over sixty percent of Dominica's center.

Dominica was the last of the Caribbean islands to be colonized by Europeans, due chiefly to the fierce resistance of the native Caribs.  France ceded possession to Great Britain in 1763, which made the island a colony in 1805.  In 1980, two years after independence, Dominica's fortunes improved when a corrupt and tyrannical administration was replaced by that of Mary Eugenia Charles, the first female prime minister in the Caribbean, who remained in office for 15 years.  Some 3,000 Carib Indians still living on Dominica are the only pre-Columbian population remaining in the eastern Caribbean.
