Dominica is a mountainous, forested Caribbean island nation with a year-round tropical climate, national parks, rare indigenous birds and the second-largest boiling lake in the world. It has significant tourism potential, but poor infrastructure and the absence of a large airport have impeded the industry's growth.
The country is also vulnerable to hurricanes. With few natural resources, Dominica is attempting to reduce its reliance on bananas, traditionally its main export earner. The banana market has faced stiffer competition since the European Union was forced by the World Trade Organization to phase out preferential treatment for producers from former colonies.
The peace and quiet, the fresh air, the colours, the heritage, and the embrace of nature, all combine to make Dominica an inspirational place for writers, artists, photographers and researchers. Unlike mainstream Caribbean islands, Dominica does not have sprawling and crowded beach resort.
