For the first time, Dominica has been honored in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel collection as a top travel destination. The selection was made based on the destination’s locality, unique experiences, ‘wow’ factor, and its ongoing commitment to sustainability, community, and diversity.
To be recognized by such a prestigious publication, as one of the top destinations to unwind, solidifies our stance in maintaining the island’s natural environment while still creating authentic experiences for travellers, whether seeking adventure or relaxation.Colin Piper, Discover Dominica Authority’s CEO/ Director of Tourism
This nomination has caught the attention of Forbes magazine, known for its famous lists such as The World’s Billionaires, as one of the top five destinations ‘to put on your radar for 2023.’ The announcement was made in December 2022 on the global media company’s website in which Dominica’s air access and emergence of luxury resorts are highlighted. Photos of Dominica’s natural attractions were also included in the piece, which can be expected to gain a reach of over 150M across the company’s platforms.
2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year to get out and explore. With much of the world firmly on the road to recovery, travellers are looking for different locations and experiences, and we know Dominica will not disappoint.Tom Hall, Vice President of Lonely Planet
