It’s certainly not uncommon, upon visiting the Caribbean, to fall head over heels for the place. The brilliant weather, amazing natural wonders, the easy pace of life – it’s all so enticing, no wonder most people dream of some day giving it all up and running away to the islands.
Jem Winston, however, is not most people.
Unlike most people, Jem actually made his dream come true, and in the process, created what is one of the world’s leading ecotourism vacation experiences in the form of the 3 Rivers Eco-Lodge on Dominica.
Jem’s story, and that of 3 Rivers, is nothing short of remarkable. To think that a former taxi driver from the UK could create, literally from nothing, a place as special and rewarding as 3 Rivers, just defies imagination.
If you care about the environment, the Caribbean and sustainable tourism development, then the video above, and its follow-up found here, are MUST viewing, just as a visit to 3 Rivers will be a must for us if we realize our dream of visiting Dominica later this year…
