Don't come to Dominica for archetypical Caribbean sandy beaches and tourist lookalike hotels. Its rugged and dramatic coastline, with steep cliffs plunging into the sea, are the ideal backdrop for its natural, eco-treasures, like its thick forests, magnificent waterfalls and gushing rivers. Coupled with its diverse sloping reefs, pinnacles, walls and underwater hot springs, Dominica is a scuba-divers’ delight!
This beautiful unspoilt tropical paradise is also equipped with all mod-cons, including a good communications infrastructure, banks and numerous restaurants, usually run by local family businesses. The Dominica property market is mainly comprised of individual homes nestled in nature rather than the large resort property that is common on other Caribbean islands.
Plots of beachfront land are also available, often at a significantly lower price than other Caribbean locations. Dominica is truly one of the few places left in the world, and most certainly in the Caribbean, where it is genuinely possible to 'get back to nature'.

Dominica is a developing country seeking to diversify its economy from bananas to becoming more focused on eco-tourism and evolving its service sector. A large proportion of the island is mountainous and less than 25% of the country is under cultivation. Although its dominant crop is bananas, it leaves the country vulnerable to tropical storms and hurricanes, as well as fluctuations in its banana sales to the EU market. Prior to the recent hurricane disaster (2017), Dominica had a GNI per capita of US$6,440 (2012) and a GDP growth of 2.5% per annum (2008-12).Read More
