Dominica, which in Latin its means "Sunday", is an island nation sitting midway along the Eastern Caribbean archipelago, just a few miles from the French islands of Martinique to the south and Guadeloupe to the north. Dominica is located 15 degrees North latitude and 61 degrees west longitude.

The island's official name is the Commonwealth of Dominica, which is mostly use in official communication and to help distinguish the island from the Dominican Republic which is located in the northerly part of the Caribbean. The indigenous Carib Indians named the island Waitukubuli which means "Tall is Her Body" in the Carib language.

The island is lightly populated with around 70,000 people inhabiting its 289.5 square miles, where a significant portion of the population lives in and around the capital city, Roseau. Dominica was picked as one of the best rated island destination by National Geographic Traveler sustainable and destination experts. Below are some the comments:
"The Nature Isle is aptly named-awesome power and incredible beauty of nature unspoiled. Its lush mountains, indigenous population, art, craft, agro-based products, and small-scale accommodation facilities all add to the opportunity for sustainable tourism development."

"Beautiful country. Still largely forested, amazing biodiversity, great bird watching and scuba diving. Because Dominica doesn't possess the traditional beaches of the Caribbean, it is often overlooked."

"A serious dichotomy between lip service to preserving and protecting its wilderness, which is the major product, and the soliciting of more cruise ships, the proposed oil refinery, and support for Japan on the whaling issue."
Dominica is the Rembrandt of unspoiled nature filled with rivers, lakes, streams, and waterfalls abound, fed by the islands high annual rainfall. Dominica's volcanic physique points to extensive geothermal activity above and below sea level. Our Morne Trois Pitons National Park was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the eastern Caribbean. Tropical forest coats two thirds of the island, which nourishes 1,200 plant species.

Dominica is one of the only two islands in the Caribbean which still has a population of the early indigenous Carib Indians today. The island is about 80% of the population is Roman Catholic. English is the official language, spoken with a melodic French lilt, but a large portion of the population speaks Kweyol (Creole), with a few northern villages speaking Kokoy.
