Dominica is surely the least developed of the major Caribbean islands, and it offers the widest range of outdoor activities. Volcanic in origin, Dominica has a dramatic landscape in so many senses: extraordinary mountains and valleys, lush rain forest, geothermal phenomena of all descriptions, most dramatically in the famed Boiling Lake and Valley of Desolation. The hike to the Boiling Lake is one of the world’s great journeys to be made a pied, and we highly recommend it to those game and reasonably fit. You’ll see some images from our own unforgettable day here. There are plenty of other great hikes, including the Waitukubuli Trail, which stretches the entire length of the island in 14 segments. The varied trails, with a full range of degree of difficulty, will take you through unspoiled rain forest, to beautiful waterfalls, along the legendary 365 rivers that criss-cross the island, to seaside coves and much more. Diving in the waters of the island’s west coast is among the best in the Caribbean, and there’s splendid snorkeling as well.
Activities that can be scheduled at Villa PassiFlora are massages and yoga classes, offered by experienced, highly skilled instructors and practitioners.
But if you choose to simply chill at the villa, you’ll still partake in some pretty astounding natural beauties: the vistas of the sea and the coast, the sound of the waves on Pointe Baptiste, and the gentle breezes that the trade winds bring continuously our way.
