Travel Haiku - Dominica (Caribbean) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

they take the plunge
to get away from the human tide

she asks what's there in theCaribbean
with no beaches

in the midst of a sperm whale

no great beach but this other
Caribbean gem

this Caribbean gem shines
with hot springs, waterfall, rainforests

April marks the end of the Caribbean's high season—and prime time for great deals. If your ideal vacation doesn't entail lazing on the beach, try the tiny, oft-overlooked isle of Dominica. Known as the nature island of the Caribbean, Dominica has virtually no beaches but instead a rugged and wild interior perfect for adventure seekers. Hike through verdant rainforest to waterfalls and backcountry hot springs; snorkel through waters filled with tiny bubbles streaming from volcanic fissures; and watch sperm whales, which reside off Dominica's shores all year.
