Dominica is an island of the Lesser Antilles in the eastern Caribbean and is located between Guadeloupe in the north and Martinique in the south. About 74,000 inhabitants live on the island and the capital is Roseau. Dominica is considered the greenest island of the Antilles and is unofficially called “The Nature Island of the Caribbean” because of its lush and species-rich flora and fauna. The Morne Trois Pitons National Park was declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 1997 and is home to a volcanically heated boiling lake, sulphur springs, waterfalls and a narrow gorge. Dominica is considered the whale watching capital of the Caribbean: Every year from November to March, whales, especially sperm whales, are said to be excellent to watch here.
