Close to Portsmouth, on the northwest coast of Dominica (not to be confused with the Dominican Republic), you can find the Indian River. The legend says Dominica has 365 rivers, one for each day of the year. I didn’t count or visit them all on my holiday last July , but I do know that the Indian River is worth a visit. Tip: go in the low season and make sure you have the river for yourself!
Step 1: Find yourself a guide, preferably one named Gregory-but-not-Isaacs
Step 2: Sit back, relax and enjoy the wide view
Step 3: Let Gregory-but-not-Isaacs tell you beautiful stories about the Kalinago indians, the nature and the island named Waitukubuli.
Step 4: Find some amazing flowers
Step 5: Watch the river get narrower, see the forest get denser and feel the atmosphere getting more mysterious…
… until you think life is a fairy tale!
Step 6: Discover a hidden bar, try a passionfruit punch and cool off in the river
Thank you, Waitukubuli!
