Think of the Caribbean and images of palm-fringed beaches lapped by crystalline waters come to mind. Beyond the sand, the sea boasts whales, dolphins and a myriad of fish, whereas back on land, lush forests filled with colourful birds and frogs await exploration. Discover the jungles, rivers, lakes, seas, mountains and, indeed, beaches of Dominica, the Nature Isle, and St. Lucia.
