The last Caribbean island, colonized by the Europeans, partly due to the island topography and the severe resistance of the local Indians.
Approximately 3000 Caribbean descendants still inhabit the island today.
Great Britain establishes control in 1763, and in 1805 Dominica becomes a colony.
Independence is achieved in 1978.
The island is covered with thick green jungle, occasionally interrupted by sharp volcanic peaks, lakes, rivers, hot springs and waterfalls. There is a rich variety of vegetation and animals.
Dominica is a popular cruise destination and an attraction for tourist and nature enthusiasts. Ocean reefs attract divers from all over the world.
The official language is English, however, a large part of the population speaks French too.
