You’ll need to hike up to this lake, the largest in the island, but the trek won’t be lonely: hundreds of hummingbirds will keep you humming along.

Being English I can only compare the freshwater lake to one of the water reservoirs found dotted around England. There is nothing to do at the venue except look at the water. The only thing going for it is the fact that it is high...More

We went to this place as part of a four hour scenic tour. It sits at about 2500 feet or so. As a result the temperatures are noticeably cooler than along the coast. It’s the largest freshwater lake in Dominica. We didn’t spend much time...More
