On most Caribbean islands, the focus of your travels remains on the exterior. You visit the port cities and the beaches to sunbathe, swim, snorkel, and laze. This is not so on Dominica. The truly unique beauty of Dominica lies not on its coasts, but in its dense, tropical interior.
There is no better spot to capitalize on Dominica's thick rainforests, cool rivers, and abundant geothermal activity than Wotton Waven. Lying in the Roseau Valley, a short 4 mile, 20 min drive or bus ride from the capital, Wotton Waven is a nature lover's leafy paradise.
The town was named in the island's British Colonial days after Wootton Wawen in England, although the 2 towns are hardly alike.

Grenada is the only other island in the Caribbean with more than 1 volcano. Dominica boasts 9. cont./
