Dominica: elegant 1930s Caribbean retreat

The First Post: "Dominica's jungled mountains are crisscrossed with rivers, peppered with waterfalls and 'perfect' for hikers of all abilities. From Pointe Baptiste, it's an 'easy' walk to 'the bubbling Boiling Lake, enveloped in a cloud of vapour', and not far to Chaudiere, where two rivers cross and you can bathe in a Jacuzzi-like pool among high rocks, with 'the green lace of the forest looming above'. For the most adventurous, the Waitukubuli National Trail is soon to open, linking the north of the island with the south through a series of 'extraordinary' rainforest treks."
