Anguilla travel guide

4.1
Nature & Parks · Islands · Swim with Dolphins
A peaceful set of islands with a pristine, bespoke tourism infrastructure, Anguilla offers a restful vacation for beach-lovers, honeymooners, and diving enthusiasts. A scattering of historic attractions in Anguilla stand as testament to the native and colonial histories of the set of paradisal islands, but the focus here lies much more on coastlines rather than timelines. The beaches of Anguilla remain relatively untouched, allowing the scenery to speak for itself. However, this is no back-to-basics place, with whatever tourist developments there are being made to luxury standards, and priced accordingly.

Dominica travel guide

4.2
Waterfalls · Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling
Nature Isle of the Caribbean
The volcanic island nation of Dominica represents the youngest island in the Lesser Antilles. Such is evidenced in the geothermal action of the island's many hot springs, with relaxing dips in the hot sulfur spring water among the most popular things to do in Dominica. The unspoiled appearance of much of the nation provides a natural backdrop for a wealth of ecotourism adventures, including swimming, hiking, and snorkeling. The main urban areas showcase the ethnic diversity of the land once contested by the British and the French, with a number of local eateries serving West Indian and Creole dishes, and a whole lot of dancing and music to be enjoyed.
