Town

The second largest town in the country, Portsmouth has a humble charm that makes it pleasant enough as a base for regional exploration.
You've now added Indian River to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Portsmouth: Chaudiere Pool (in Bense) and Morne Diablotin National Park (in Northern Forest Reserve). Spend the 27th (Wed) exploring nature at Cabrits National Park. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Fort Shirley, take in the dramatic scenery at Syndicate Falls, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and explore the gorgeous colors at Toucari Bay.

For other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, read our Portsmouth travel planner.

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.
