Caribbean Islands - Montserrat (PDF Chapter)
This is the Montserrat chapter from Lonely Planet’s Caribbean Islands guide-book.
Before it became devastated by cataclysmic eruptions of the Soufrière Hills Volcano in 1995, Montserrat was a carefree island paradise. Two decades later, it is slowly recovering. Visitors are drawn by the friendly locals, fabulous hiking and birdwatching, and blessedly tranquil ambi-ence.
