Dominica is a mere 29 miles long x 16 miles wide, though it feels much larger. The currency is the East Caribbean Dollar and English is the official language. Driving is on the left and the cost of petrol is much cheaper than in Europe or the UK. The time in Dominica is 1 hour ahead of USA eastern time (4 hours behind GMT). Car hire can easily be arranged and the island-wide minibus passenger services are cheap to use and frequent along the west coast between the capital Roseau in the south and Portsmouth in the north, though less frequent on other routes. Local sightseeing tours are also available, though these are geared more for cruise ship visitors, who's time on the island is very limited. For those visiting for 2 to 3 weeks, we recommend a visit with stays in more than just one location.
Most of the country's tiny population of around 70,000 farms bananas, citrus and other tropical fruit on the picturesque mountain slopes. Crime is scarce and should not inhibit ones sense of freedom and total enjoyment. Dominica is the only Caribbean island to have a surviving population of Carib Indians. After the Arawaks, these migrants from South America dominated the region for a long period, before being decimated by the colonizing forces of Europe. In the north east of the island, the Carib Territory is an area where their culture is preserved and protected. A traditional Carib Village has been recreated for the visitor and throughout this region, local handicrafts such as carving and basket weaving may be purchased from roadside kiosks.
