*[[Morne Trois Pitons National Park]] — A [[UNESCO World Heritage Site]], it contains many attractions such as the Boiling Lake, the Freshwater Lake, Boeri Lake and Middleham Falls. Boiling Lake is a 12 mile round trip hike (8 hours), very steep mostly on steps and switchbacks. A guide is recommended for inexperienced back country hikers, the terrain is rough especially when wet (which it almost always is). The trail is well marked most of the way. The trail is indistinct in the Valley of Desolation but picks up again where vegetation begins. The hike is stunning and the bare volcanic mountain tops make for unforgettable views of rolling mountain tops and steamy volcanic vents. Trail ends at the Boiling Lake, a 100 meter wide lake that is being heated by a volcanic vent and is boiling.

*'''Jaco Steps''' — Ford the creek in Belles and hike into the a rain forest up the side of a nearly inaccessible forest plateau. In 30 minutes you will reach the Jaco Steps.
There is not a clear consensus of why these steps were constructed many decades ago. To do a circular route by following the river upstream will add a hour at least to your journey and will involve multiple crossings of the river en route.
*'''Central Region''' — The lushly forested and hand-farmed central region is sparsely populated and considered by many to be the most beautiful region. It consists of several villages:

In the high lands and uninhabited central regions water is gathered at roadside springs. Sometimes the bus will stop and passengers will fill their water bottles. Locals prefer the taste of this water to bottled water.
Public water is bacterially safe to drink due to heavy chlorination and has the expected chlorine flavor.
visitors should avoid Dominica, as a recent arrest of two gay men who were on a cruise showed clearly how the island feels about LGBT people (the men were taken to jail for "indecent exposure" and were paraded in front of citizens who mocked and taunted them). LGBT travelers should be aware of this and avoid visiting, but if you do go be sure to NEVER show any type of public affection.
