The island of Dominica can be summed up in one word: nature. Nature shapes and supports the lifestyles of Dominica's people. Even visitors are affected by the weather, which can include rain, sunshine and rainbows all in the course of an afternoon.
People say Dominica is the one Caribbean island that still looks like it did when Christoper Columbus visited. The surviving Caribs, the Caribbean's original inhabitants, live on Dominica. Some still practice Obeah, an African form of magic.
