The people of Dominica have a strong sense of national pride in the island and the efforts to sustain its natural resources have been in place for generations. With its extensive natural park system and marine reserves, visitors can discover a world on Dominica that is as pristine today as it was hundreds of years ago. Dominica is a nature lovers Eden and truly has something for everyone.
