Dominica is quiet about its glories. In fact, this small island has a calm and quiet soul. Even though it boasts nine volcanoes, three national parks, three geothermally gorgeous marine reserves and 365 rivers. A blessing rather than a curse, there are no direct international flights, so the majority of big birds you see in the sky are natural ones, with over 180 species from pelicans to parrots. So, Dominica is quiet, yes; but sleepy, no. Because the best way to explore the rain and cloud forests, volcanic craters and steamy slopes is by hiking. Which is why the Waitukubuli National Trail, the only long-distance walking trail in the Caribbean, is so highly rated by international trekkers. Spanning 185kms from north to south, it was designed by the local community to link up remote villages. By foot. Because when you do Dominica slowly and quietly, just as Dominicans do, you allow the sights and sounds to simply speak for themselves. And they speak volumes.
