On Dominica and Calibishie

  • Paul Crask’s website is a great source of information on the island, particularly its natural features and culture. His Bradt Guide to Dominica remains the best current resource on the island, and it is one of the best guidebooks to any destination I’ve ever read. The current 3rd Edition was written and published before Hurricane Maria, so many of the trails and features described will be altered.
  • Ann Keener, a passionate advocate of local foods and a phenomenal cook, spent about four months at Villa PassiFlora as part of our caretaking team. Her blog contains some wonderful insights into procuring and preparing the magnificent natural bounty of Dominica, as well as a sometimes amusing look at our trip to the Boiling Lake.
  • Lennox Honychurch is a great source of information on Dominica’s history and culture. His Dominica guide, Dominica: Isle of Adventure, though not recently updated, remains an excellent introduction to the island.
  • Dominica gets lauded as ethical travel destination in Caribbean Journal.

Points South

  • Yes, Mick Jagger did hike to the Boiling Lake.
  • As did we! Ann Keener’s blog contains a detailed description of our utterly exhausting but unforgettable experience. Let us help you arrange a day trip with one of our guides.

Arts and Images

  • Lu Szumskyj has graciously contributed images for our website. The best photos are all his!
  • The Society for Heritage Architecture Preservation Enhancement (SHAPE) is doing great work with modest financial resources to preserve Dominca’s Caribbean architecture, primarily in Roseau. If your trip includes a visit to Roseau, SHAPE’s walking tour of the capital is highly recommended.
