Dominica was the last of the Caribbean islands to be colonized by Europeans, due chiefly to the fierce resistance of the native Caribs. France ceded possession to Great Britain in 1763, which made the island a colony in 1805. In 1980, two years after independence, Dominica's fortunes improved when a corrupt and tyrannical administration was replaced by that of Mary Eugenia Charles, the first female prime minister in the Caribbean, who remained in office for 15 years. Some 3,000 Carib Indians still living on Dominica are the only pre-Columbian population remaining in the eastern Caribbean.
Location: Caribbean, island between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, about one-half of the way from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Tobago
Climate: Tropical; moderated by northeast trade winds; heavy rainfall
Borders: None
One of the Windward Island republics in the West Indies, Dominica has Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south. English is the official language, although a French patois is also spoken among the Roman Catholic islanders. Christopher Columbus first sighted the island on November 3rd, 1493 and named it Dominica.
The French arrived in 1632, but the island was handed over to the British in 1763 by the Treaty of Paris. Dominica gained full independence from Great Britain on November 2nd, 1978. Roseau's Roman Catholic cathedral was built in the 18th century, and you can also visit the botanical gardens. The twin waterfalls at Trafalgar, are also a popular tourist attraction.
