Family trip to Dominica Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Dominica - Roseau Harbour 2 Vacation in Dominica will be great for children, who are ready to learn something new and leave traditional activities for some time. The thing is, there are no specialized places for kids like amusement or water parks. However, a lot of beautiful natural landmarks, clean beaches, rich history, and comfortable water and air temperature all year round make Dominica a good choice for a family vacation.
Dominica is known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean and is home of the state with the same name. Among the Windword Islands, Dominika is the largest one. A significant part of its … Open
You should begin the acquaintance with the island from its capital, Roseau city. It was created by the French in the 17th century, where there used to be an Indian village. Here your child can visit the State Museum and learn the history of Dominica. Despite the small size, the island was inhabited a long time ago. During colonial wars, the island was the reason for the clash between England and France. You can learn all this, exploring the collection of artifacts in the museum. If your child prefers the “alive” history, spend more time, walking along the streets of the city. Roseau was built in French colonial style and it hasn’t changed a lot since the main building was finished. It perfectly represents the spirit of that time. Old Market, the market for slaves, stone Catholic cathedral, Anglican Communion – all those buildings will tell your child more about this amazing place than he will ever read in a book.
You should definitely visit L’Escalier Tete Chien in Morne Trois Piton National Park. This lava field will boost the imagination of small children and will impress older children with the power of natural disaster. In this national park, you should also show your children such unique nature objects as Boiling Lake and Emerald Pool, which has an unusual color because of a big amount of mineral salts. Cabrits Marine and National Park will be interesting not only for young naturalists but also for those, who like war history. The boys will be able to imagine the life of a British soldier from the 18th century while walking in Fort Shirley, which was recently partially restored. In the park itself, a child will see not only banana and mango plantations but also the Indian River, which many people know from The Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Which child will miss an opportunity to visit the place that he saw in his favorite movie? Copyright www.orangesmile.com
Dominican cuisine combines the traditions of French, African, and American Indian’s cuisines. Remember that most of the local dishes are very spicy. The restaurants are located only in … Open
Nothern Forest Park is obligatory to visit for young entomologists. More than fifty most beautiful tropical butterflies live here. However, you should visit the park, even if your child is indifferent to butterflies. Here lives a huge imperial parrot – a true symbol of Dominica, and a couple of other types of birds that you can only find in the Caribbean. Two dozen of frogs, a boa constrictor, and thirty types of bats live in the park. Estimate the physical abilities of your child, choose a route and start exploring the jungles. Your kid will be thrilled to visit a thick and beautiful forest, where unusual plants grow and unique animals live.
You can take older children for rafting along one of the island’s rivers, which are almost two hundred. If your child prefers more calm activities or he is too small, choose a sea voyage. Rent a boat and enjoy the beauties of the shore. If your child likes diving or snorkeling, Dominica won’t disappoint you. Swimming in the hot springs of Titou Gorge or in Trafalgar falls will be a great rest from walking tours around the island.

Plymouth

From the series “Abandoned Places of the Earth with Distinct Marks of Civilization”
The deserted city of Plymouth is situated on the Caribbean island of Montserrat that was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493. The story of the place is very tragic. The reason for its depopulation is an ecological disaster, which was caused by the eruption of Soufriere Hills volcano. It happened in 1995. The eruption was so heavy, that streets of the once picturesque and bustling town were covered with half-meter of ash. … Read further
