Mermaid's Secret

In a lush rainforest on Dominica nearby three rivers sits Mermaid's Secret, a three acre property with cabins and yurts that brings a whole new -- more posh -- feel to camping.

Those hoping to stay active will be kept plenty busy at these all-inclusive cottages, which have an excellent selection of recreational activities.

Situated just outside the heart of the island of Dominica, 0.9 miles north of Grand Fond, Mermaid's Secret, an all-inclusive property, happily welcomes vacationers interested in staying on this beautiful island. If you're curious, the center of Roseau is eight and a half miles (14 kilometers) to the south west.


Not you ordinary tents, Mermaid's Secret's two Yurts are anything but rustic. The Luxury style "tents" are the size of rooms, and come with hardwood floors and full-sized beds.

Other amenities include a barbecue grill, shower facilities, a communal toilet, and camping stoves. There are also two cabins and space for the casual camper with traditional tents.
