Dominica (Pronounced like Dominique-ah) is an amazing country that consists of 80-90% of undeveloped land. If a quiet hike through the rain forest is your type of vacation, then this is the place for you. However, this is a fairly poor country, and amenities are lacking for the middle class tourist. There are amazing hiking trails and natural preserves for all activity levels. Try the day trip into "Emerald Pool?," and bring your swim trunks!
