   Dominica - Country and People

  The "Nature Island" Dominica is a lush green, mountainous island, located between the two french islands Martinique in the south and Guadeloupe in the north. The island is 50 km long and 20 km wide, the highest elevation, the Morne Diablotin, is 1447 m high.
   Dominica is wellknown for "soft tourism". You wont find any of those big concrete tourist fortresses on that beautiful island. We hope that it may be left in that state for a long time.
