Destinations are chosen based on their ‘wow’ factor, commitment to sustainability, community and diversity, unique experiences, and topicality.

Tom Hall, Vice President of Lonely Planet, shared in a press release, “Celebrated and recognized for its natural attractions, Dominica is often confused with the Dominican Republic, but we don’t expect that to happen much longer.”

Unwind in Dominica

Colin Piper, Discover Dominica Authority’s CEO/Director of Tourism, said in a press release, “We are incredibly honored to be considered as one of the top destinations to unwind by Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel. This recognition is a true testament to our beautiful island and the growth in tourism we’ve experienced in recent years. To be recognized by such a prestigious publication as one of the top destinations to unwind solidifies our stance in maintaining the island’s natural environment while still creating authentic experiences for travelers, whether seeking adventure or relaxation.”

Dominica is the youngest island in the Caribbean and the last to be colonized.

Travelers flying with American Airlines can connect to Dominica directly from Miami.

“2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year to get out and explore. With much of the world firmly on the road to recovery, travelers are looking for different locations and experiences, and we know Dominica will not disappoint,” said Hall.
