Dominica - Nature Isle of the Caribbean

Located between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean in Central America, Dominican is the island nation, known for its natural beauty. Enjoying the title of ‘Nature Isle of the Caribbean’, the country has everything from mountains and volcanoes to lakes and places of entertainment.

Dominica became one of the last islands colonized by France in the year 1635 and the British forces also followed the footsteps of their French counterparts. However, the country was soon abandoned by the forces from both the countries in the year 1660. Though, the country remained a piece of attraction for both of them. In the beginning of the 18th century, the French forces once again became dominant in the region, but soon ceded the country to Britain. After a strong rivalry between France and Britain, the country was finally possessed by the latter. After a number of political developments, Dominican became the associated state of UK in 1967. It was in 1978 that the country became independent from the rule of the United Kingdom.
