A paradise for nature-lovers, Dominica has thick forests, towering mountains, aquamarine seas, hundreds of waterfalls and hot springs - plus the last refuge of the Carib Indians. St. Lucia is among the lushest and most beautiful of the Caribbean Islands. Island accommodations are often secluded hideaways, popular with honeymooners and naturalists. Alive Guides tell you what's hot and what's not, with plenty of suggestions for daytime activity and nighttime fun. Each guide offers hundreds of restaurant and hotel profiles in all price ranges, including the very best places to stay and eat, adventure, nights in the city or budget accommodation. Beyond where to stay and eat, Alive Guides focus on the things that make each destination unique - hiking in the rain forests of St Lucia or diving off the coast of Bonaire. 'Sunup to sundown' sections cover a huge variety of activities and organized excursions, including a thorough listing of the best beaches. Suggested road trips and walking tours are accompanied by town and regional maps. 'After dark' sections give the lowdown on hot nightclubs, romantic bars, high-class casinos, movies and theatre. An A-Z reference at the end provides a comprehensive list of useful contacts, including ATM and bank locations, doctors and medical facilities, tourism offices, religious services and websites.
