Dominica Vacations

Largely rural, uncrowded and unspoiled, Dominica touts itself as a 'non-tourist destination' for divers, hikers and naturalists - partly because it trades the lazy white-sand beaches so predominant elsewhere in the Caribbean for verdant peaks, killer hikes and breathtaking underwater scenery.

Events

Though the partying starts in early January, Dominica's Carnival celebrations are held during the traditional Mardi Gras period, in the two weeks prior to Lent (February). It includes calypso competitions, a Carnival Queen contest, 'jump-ups' and a costume parade. Creole Day, also called Independence Day (3 November), is a celebration of the island's Creole language and culture. It includes traditional dancing, folklore, food and music. The week-long, island-wide Independence Day celebrations are kicked off by the excellent World Creole Music Festival, a three-day music extravaganza held at the end of October.
