Taking a hike



It’s heaven for an active solo traveler: the Waitukubuli Trail, the longest hiking trail in the Caribbean, and the pride of Dominica. This is the greatest hiking destination in the region, and as you pass by waterfalls, rich flora and fauna and volcanoes, you’ll soon see why. Where to Stay: Fort Young Hotel in Roseau.



The green hills of Martinique are some of the most beautiful in the Caribbean, and the island is filled with lush, leafy rainforests seemingly designed for long hikes.  And you can always celebrate the hike with a rhum agricole. Where to Stay: Villa Saint Pierre near Mont Pelee.
