Dominica

 

Dominica, officially the Commonwealth of Dominica, is an island nation in the Lesser Antilles region of the Caribbean Sea, south-southeast of Guadeloupe and northwest of Martinique.  Its size is 290 square miles.  The Commonwealth of Dominica had a population of 71,293 at the 2011 Census.  The capital is Roseau which is located on the leeward side of the island.

I visited Dominica on 2 occasions.  Both times I went with a very good friend from England.  A small island country, it is a marvelous place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.  It is a place of limited historical sites but a place very rich in seascapes and tropical foliage.  I would be happy to return.
