Once you've been underwater - really underwater, snorkeling or scuba-diving, your perspective on the world changes. You can't wait to get back underwater. I remember this well, and despite jellyfish stings, sunburn, and seasickness, I try my hardest to get in the ocean and get underwater any chance I can. Imagine my delight when I found out about Dive Fest, on the Caribbean island of Dominica. Located between Guadeloupe and Martinique, Dominica seems to be a scuba-diving paradise.

It is too big for a weekend and runs every year in August. As you reach the city limits, you’ll be greeted by more pink flamingos than flock anywhere else north of Miami as the small beach town of Caseville morphs into Key North.
