The highlight of our stay in Dominica last April was the hike to Boiling Lake. This hike is a must for any serious hiker visiting Dominica. Boiling Lake could arguably be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and getting there (and down) made for a gorgeous, adventuresome, arduous day filled with hot clay/pumice facials, hot spring soaks, freshly boiled eggs – in the hot spring river! – and waterfalls galore.
There’s so much more to explore on Dominica, we’ll definitely be back. For example, Dominica is home to the Caribbean’s first long distance trail, the Waitukubuli National Trail, which passes through the Carib (Kalinago) Territory (home to indigenous peoples and the UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the Morne Trois Pitons National Park that encompasses Boiling Lake. Composed of 14 sections, the trail runs 115 miles south-north, bisecting the length of the island. Yes, please!!
