Roseau, Dominica: The country, Dominica is one of those countries which are on a speedy developmental path. BBC ( British Broadcasting Corporation), one of the largest broadcasting networks around the world, featured ‘Dominica, Lesser Antilles’ in 10 sustainable travel destinations to visit in 2024.

The country has become a perfect sustainable travel destination as it includes various sustainable tourism spots, offering luxuries to tourists through the services of sustainable resorts like Coulibri Ridge and trails like Soufriere Outdoor Centre.

Many tourism related developments including the above mentioned have been taken in the country under the administration of Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit. Making Dominica a sustainable tourism destination has gone through a long but remarkable journey as the Island was completely devastated after Hurricane Maria hit the nation in 2017.

Despite the challenges, the strength of the authorities and the local populace made it possible to take the country to the heights. And, aligning with it, the country is on its path to becoming the World’s first Climate Resilience Nation by 2030.

Significantly, Eco Tourism is part of the steps towards it. The government of the nation is dedicated to working towards eco-tourism. Various features like eco-lodges, resorts and villas make a great contribution towards it.

Also, these features are attracting people from a wider area to pay a visit to the beautiful island, also known as “ Nature Isle of the Caribbean.”
