If you saw the Globe's article on Dominica in the Travel section recently, you know it's one of the few fairly unspoiled places left on the earth. In fact, National Geographic's Center for Sustainable Destinations has placed it among the "best rated" destinations in its islands survey. Better get there while it lasts. Dominica hotels and restaurants are offering Valentine's Day packages and menus to lure you there by Feb. 14. Among the offers:
Jungle Bay Resort & Spa has an "adventure package with romantic upgrade" that starts at $269 per person per night at a luxury cottage with dinner and a massage for two.
The restaurant at the Fort Young Hotel has a Valentine's Day menu for $46 per person.
Calibishie Cove's "romantic escape" package includes seven nights in a penthouse, champagne, flowers, candlelit dinner, a waterfall tour and a kayak rental. Rates begin at $1,595 per couple.
The Bamboo Restaurant at Calibishie Lodges has a Valentine's dinner for $32 per person, and each couple will receive a Valentine's-themed gift.
