Dominica is called the “Nature Island” because of its beauty and many reserves. Hike through enchanting rainforest, walk up to the ruins of 18th-century Fort Shirley with your Historian, or go for a swim and snorkel. Spend the evening docked in the forested tranquility of Cabrits National Park.

Day 4 Iles des Saintes / Under Sail

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
