Visitors to the beautiful Domincan Republic may occasionally say the weather is boiling, but the meteorological conditions are nothing compared to the steamy heat generated by the remarkable Boiling Lake.
A year-round attraction, the lake is a bubbling, grey-blue stretch of water in a mountainous area of the country, which is best reached with the help of a local guide.
This steamy geothermal wonder can be marvelled at by all those who don't mind getting a little bit wet and muddy on the trail, which encompasses some outstanding and lush scenery.
Adding to the wonder and mystery are a number of other thermal springs and vents, with all kinds of substances steaming up from the ground.
The trek makes for a fascinating addition to the enjoyment of a trip to Dominica, which offers beautiful beaches and azure Caribbean waters in a tropical getaway from the cold and wet of a British winter.
