The Association

The Dominica Hotel & Tourism Association (DHTA) is a non-profit organization providing centralized and innovative information, advocacy, and leadership for the tourism industry in Dominica. First established in 1972 and operating as a membership-based tourism development organization for over four decades, the Dominica Hotel & Tourism Association is a focal point for the tourism industry in Dominica. DHTA assumes a leadership role in the industry, and acts as a catalyst for enabling Dominica’s tourism economy to reach its full potential to the benefit of our current and future members, visitors, investors and travel partners, citizens and the Commonwealth of Dominica.


The Island

Everything you need to know about Dominica begins with the topography. It affects our food, culture, way of life.. and attracts the kind of traveller looking to escape the everyday for the relative seclusion of an authentic off-the-beaten-path experience. From a romantic horseback ride on a black sand beach, to a sunset soak in the healing sulphur springs, to backpack expeditions through dense rainforests and rushing gorges into wild nature along the Caribbean's longest hiking trail. Underwater, encounter pristine reefs, volcanic fumaroles and plunging depths as rugged as the land above in one of the Caribbean’s most dramatic marine environments. And when you take a break from swimming under waterfalls, indulge in fresh, wholesome foods that restore the body and soul. So come, we’re seeking adventurers.

Getting Here

There are no long-haul direct flights to Dominica. We are off the beaten path – and it’s worth it. With daily connections to several Caribbean international airports, you can wake up in your own bed and fall asleep to the sounds of the rainforest.
