Because of its sparse rocky beaches and its absence of luxurious amenities, Dominica remains one of the least-visited tourist destinations in the Caribbean.

Most vacationers who visit this beautiful eco-paradise are drawn to its vivid, unspoiled nature and uncrowded accommodations. The majority of the island's lodgings are rustic and don't have the razzle-dazzle appeal of more popular Caribbean vacation spots. Very few all-inclusive hotels operate on the island.

The appeal of all-inclusive resorts is that they provide vacationers with all available amenities at one final cost. These types of accommodations are usually large resorts and hotels, popular in tourist hot-spots and high-traffic vacation areas specializing in glamorous lodgings. You will not find mega-resorts and luxurious hotels on Dominica; the island is known more for its simple countryside charm. Most travelers come to Dominica to get away from crowded areas and have a tranquil experience in nature, so the island's accommodations are accordingly geared toward eco tourism.

Manicou River is one property of this type located within northern Dominica. The accommodations are built up from red and white cedar, and bursting with unique designs like handblown glass sinks.

While all-inclusive features will usually give you just about the same service anywhere you stay, it's always wise to call ahead and check. When you talk to them, be sure to ask about exactly what is included in the all-inclusive stay.

Adventurous travelers may not be happy staying at an all-inclusive hotel or resort during a stay on Dominica. All-inclusives leave little for you to plan and provide almost all of your vacation needs. Many who stay at these types of resorts do not feel compelled to venture out from the premises of the hotel or spend money on extra activitiesavailable on the island. To some, this can take away from the total vacationing experience of Dominica.

Known as the "Nature Island of the Caribbean," Dominica is an eco-traveler's ideal vacation spot. Because of its natural, rustic appeal, accommodations are not as extravagant as they are on some islands in the Caribbean. If you'd rather not worry about the little things while enjoying a relaxing getaway on Dominica, then all-inclusive accommodations may be the perfect lodgings for you.
