Portsmouth

— 6 nights

Town

The second largest town in the country, Portsmouth has a humble charm that makes it pleasant enough as a base for regional exploration.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Carib Cultural Village by the Sea (Kalinago Barana Aute) and Fort Shirley. Discover out-of-the-way places like Toucari Bay and Morne Diablotin National Park. Step out of Portsmouth with an excursion to Chaudiere Pool in Bense--about 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, enjoy the sand and surf at Toucari Beach, take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rocks, and hike along Wavine Cyrique Falls.

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.
