Always worth a mention when you are the only one left !

The only remaining tribe of Carib Indians in the Caribbean reside on the reservation called Carib Territory. It is a modern community who has adapted their lifestyle somewhat but have at the same time preserved their ways.

One thing to see is the Escalier Tete Chien at Sineku a natural formation - it isn't on the normal tourism radar so thats why I would like to go and I imagine that like with many places in Dominica it can be a trek before you leave the vehicle !

I don't know who to thank for the images in this post I guess the Carib Indians is a start found here http://www.islandmix.com/backchat/f6/i-am-carib-arawak-west-indian-211879/index2.html

Dominica

Dominica
Why is Dominica called the Nature Isle ?

Each Caribbean destination is blessed but some more than others and Dominica is perhaps the most blessed for nature. 60% of Dominica is covered by rainforrest. It is covered with spikes reaching to the clouds. Perhaps Dominica has been ignored as it is not blessed with beaches and this has kept the traditional resorts and vacationers away. What they don't know is benefiting the hiker right ! The adventure tourist in you should visit and get an alternative vacation. It's hard to consider an island without beaches in the Caribbean. The volcanic nature of the island has perhaps caused the underwater world to be just as jaw dropping with caves and walls and topography to delight many a diver.

Relatively Undiscovered

The other factor that is holding the visitors back perhaps is the need to arrive via boat or small plane as the two airports cannot land big international flights. Melville Hall Airfield north west is more busy than Canefield in the south west.

Ferries arrive at Roseu and you may just be stayingin the Castle comfort area then a taxi is a cheap way to get your pack off.

When to visit Dominica ?

Be careful to visit in the dry part of the year from January to June - this doesnt really apply too much to the other islands but here 'rain da cum'.

Carriacou - some reasons to visit.

Carriacou - some reasons to visit.

There are some very interesting reasons to pass by Carriacou if you get to the main island and nation of Grenada. It has some amazing beaches but you should try to get some street party action which is very good and it really feels like a different place than Grenada.

Before we get to that lets thank Lloyd for his superb Carriacou images from flickr >>

The Carriacou Carnival - this year starting very soon the 25th Jan to feb 17th sees verses of Shakespeare recited along with more regular carnival type fun. There are any events organised over this period. Read more >>

The Carriacou Regatta and Big Drum Dance - read more >> Carriacou has held onto pre christian spirituality more than perhaps anywhere else in the Caribbean and the Big Drum Dance is perhaps the best example of this when those passed away talk to their descendants. This is the culmination of the Regatta time in August.

More tips for Grenada and Carriacou

Well Grenada, from my limited perspective.

Just a nice way to view the Bahamas and Bimini - if your in any doubt what it might be like then spoiler alert - DONT WATCH THIS NOW !

Caribbean Video Production Services are available now with wonderful GPS controlled Quads at a fraction of the cost of traditional helicopter. The art that is photography is still a requirement so don't think you can just do it yourself. It's cheap enough anyway to get some real unique footage for you're Caribbean Interest.
