Re: Caribbean Travel
Been to Mexico and Dominica (Not Dominican Republic).
I can highly recommend Dominica. It didn't develop in the same way as most of the rest of the Caribbean. It wasn't really conducive to sugar production so was never deforested. It has very few beaches at all, but it is amazing for rainforest hiking, waterfalls, general nature stuff. The big natural attraction is the boiling lake which is a day long hike. I can't recommend this place enough. It is just amazing. The big drawback is that it is hard to get to since it can only accomodate small craft at its airport. But then again that keeps it from getting overrun like the other islands. And the local fruit is to die for, especially the grapefruit. Lodging options are variable. There are a number of ecolodges as you might imagine, but some other guesthouses and such. I'm dying to go back.
