Dominica nominated as Best Green Tourism Destination
Dominica has just received two more nominations in responsible tourism. This was at the World Travel Green Awards.
Dominica received a nomination in the Best Green Destination category. Dominica was the only country besides Costa Rica, the eventual winner, to be selected for nomination.
The Jungle Bay Resort & Spa, from Dominica, has been listed in Poverty Reduction. Reason being is that this nature resort, in the southeast of Dominica, employs its staff from local communities and is invloved in micro-financing in the region - mostly in organic produce, local arts & crafts production, and guiding of cultural tours and hikes.
