Morne Diablotin National Park

Dominica's highest peak looms at 4,747ft (1,430m) and its name translates as "little devil." At least five lava domes stacked together to form the summit of this active volcano, which still keeps hot springs bubbling. Cool mist almost constantly swathes the higher elevations, where cloud forest moss, ferns, and spindly trees rule. Look for the elusive national bird here, the Imperial Amazon parrot, known locally as a "sisserou." The Syndicate Nature Trail is a great place to start searching, especially guided by world-renowned ornithologist Bertrand "Dr Birdy" Jno Baptiste.

Site pass required: EC$13 ($US5) per day or EC$32 (US$12) per week. (767) 266-3817; forestry@cwdom.dm; dominica.dm/index.php/national-parks
