Full Throttle Thrills

Feeling a need for speed? Hop into a 4x4 and explore Dominica’s rainforests, waterfalls and mountains safari-style.

A bowl of mashed plantains

Local Cuisine

You can call this Caribbean Soul Food. Think sweet plantains, mangos, yams, kushkush (cornmeal), fresh fish and locally caught game, all cooked with plenty of Creole spices and savory herbs for a kick. The island’s signature drink— a spiced rum steeped with anisette and lemongrass— is the perfect refresher on a sunny island day.

Handwoven baskets at an outdoor shop

Shopping

During your Dominica cruise, you can find just about anything at Pirates on Long Lane, from souvenirs and cigars to local cheeses. But Kalinago Barana Aute in the Carib territory is a must if you’re scouting for carvings, pottery, and handwoven baskets. Today, Dominica boasts the largest population of Carib Indians, an indigenous people of the Lesser Antilles.

Fish and Chips on a white tray

LOCAL CUISINE

In Antigua, British, Creole, and West Indian flavors come together to spice up local ingredients and fresh seafood.

If you wander the harbor front, you’ll find traditional English fish and chips paired with locally brewed Wadadli beer.

INSIDER TIP

Antigua is the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean islands, so don’t forget your sunscreen. Do not wear camouflage clothing— it’s against the law  in Antigua— and leave your beach attire for the beach.

Casual beach spots with super-fresh seafood are your best bet for lunch. Order some spiny lobster or conch grilled over an open fire.
