Rolling green landscapes, tropical rainforests and scattered volcanic beaches are some of the splendors that make up the island of Dominica. Often referred to as The Nature Island and home to the Caribbean’s longest walking trail, this island offers endless opportunities for adventurous outdoor activities.

So often, clients mention that they’d like to escape the crowds. Travelers looking for an off the beaten path destination filled with activities such as hiking, diving, whale watching and canyoning—just to name a few—will find what they’re looking for with a trip to Dominica.

Visitors to the island can experience exclusive activities they may not be able to find in other destinations. Some of these include a dip in the Emerald Pool, relaxing on a black sand beach, swimming with a horse during a horseback riding tour and hiking to the Boiling Lake.

This provides multiple selling opportunities for agents.

In order to learn about everything this under the radar island has to offer, travel agents can participate in Dominica’s new specialist program. Take a dive into the wealth of information, learn the top-selling tools for the destination and enjoy access to various marketing tools.
