Said to be the second largest in the world, this hot springs lake is a caldron of gray-blue water at a temperature ranging from 180 to 197 degrees Fahrenheit; a full-day rigorous hike with a guide is needed to visit this awesome sight.
Laudat, Morne Trois Pitons National Park, Dominica

We researched the condition of the trail post- Maria, but when our guide forced us to back track several times, we knew we were in for a long, hard 8:40 hour day. Several showers made footing problematic and I fell many times. The temporary ropes...More

6 hrs (3 to go & 3 to come back) hike. Intriguing views and a lot of huffing and puffing if you're not fit! The Boiling Lake is very beautiful with different flora and fauna along the way. A hike you can't not take!
In a country known for its spectacular hiking, the Boiling Lake trail has the reputation of being the iconic trail of Dominica, and that reputation well earned. The trail itself is a magnificent journey through rainforest, river (large creek) crossings, over the summit...More
