Dominica awarded third best Caribbean island for getaway vacation
Published on January 11, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version


ROSEAU, Dominica -- The Discover Dominica Authority on Friday announced that Dominica was voted as the third Best Caribbean Island to visit as a getaway by USA Today.

The Discover Dominica Authority through its quest to reach 90,000 stay over visitors encouraged fans and citizens of the Nature Island to vote for Dominica during the four-week-long contest. The contest ended on Monday and the top ten winners were published on Wednesday.

The Authority expressed its thanks to all those who voted for Dominica and encouraged them to continue supporting future initiatives, contests and campaigns with a view to increasing awareness about the destination.

The write up on Dominica on the USA Today site said:

“On mountainous Dominica, it’s what lies inland that make the island special. Two-thirds of Dominica’s original rainforest remains, as well as one of the few surviving groups of Carib Indians. The island’s volcanic roots remain very evident, whether on a hike to one of the biggest boiling lakes on the planet or while exploring underwater volcanic vents.”

Puerto Rico was voted the Best Caribbean getaway island for 2013 while Curacao was voted second best.
