Indian River

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
