Get out of town with these interesting Portsmouth side-trips: Chaudiere Pool (in Bense) and Morne Diablotin National Park (in Northern Forest Reserve). Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic scenery at Syndicate Falls, kick back and relax at Toucari Beach, hike along Wavine Cyrique Falls, and take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rocks.

Unvanquished City

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Guimaraes Castle and Taste Porto Food Tours are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Capela das Almas and Church of Santa Clara. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Guimaraes (Largo da Oliveira & Paco dos Duques de Braganca). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Museu de Arte Sacra da Igreja de Santo Ildefonso, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and learn about winemaking at Graham's Port Lodge.

Nature Isle of the Caribbean
The volcanic island nation of Dominica represents the youngest island in the Lesser Antilles. Such is evidenced in the geothermal action of the island's many hot springs, with relaxing dips in the hot sulfur spring water among the most popular things to do in Dominica. The unspoiled appearance of much of the nation provides a natural backdrop for a wealth of ecotourism adventures, including swimming, hiking, and snorkeling. The main urban areas showcase the ethnic diversity of the land once contested by the British and the French, with a number of local eateries serving West Indian and Creole dishes, and a whole lot of dancing and music to be enjoyed.
