  • In Dominica where eco-tourism and sustainable tourism is the central focus in the development of the industry the evidence are seen in the everyday lives of its people. This island is a sight to behold scenic views and breath taking landscapes on every corner of the island. a country where "clean is Green and Green is Clean" is widely promoted. 365 rivers most of which you can actually drink from.
