  • Have an outdoor adventure on Dominica

    2012-02-15

    When baby boomers arrive on the island of Dominica, they may first notice the amazing mountainous peaks and diverse vegetation that encourages guests to explore the landscapes. If travelers are looking for spa treatments and fine dining options, Dominica may not be the best fit, as it is more for the adventurous crowd that enjoysCaribbean travel with hiking, biking and other outdoor excursions.

    The natural wonders to view are seemingly endless throughout Dominica, reports The New York Times. Travelers may head to the shores of Boiling Lake, or catch a glimpse of the Sari-Sari Waterfall. Since the island is only a couple hundred square miles, it's possible to see many of the sights in a few days.

    Sulfur hot springs found throughout Dominica are rugged and open to the public, which may be the ideal way to unwind and relax after a day of hiking. These pools are formed by the underground activity that also keeps the island's eight volcanoes technically active, although none have erupted for over 1,000 years.

    If visitors are interested in the local cuisine, several tour groups offer workshops in cooking with fresh and exotic ingredients. According to Lonely Planet, guests participate in cooking classes and then enjoy tours of the facilities where many of the fruits, vegetables and spices are harvested nearby.
