The Indian River Boat-Tour is absolutely great, don't miss to take enough photos and enjoy more than one rum-Punch variety at the romantic bar.

“Great times on a rainy dark day.”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

It was a hike to the top of the mountain.. And should be part of the adventure on Trip advisor.. Crazy ride. We needed to get to the top of the river so we could do some tubing/white water rafting on down. The river water was a little chilly but nice. There were a lot of guides in the water and they pretty much knew all the rocks and low spots.. Great laughs and fun in the river.

“Lay about in Layou”
Reviewed 6 August 2004

Layou is One of the most beautiful places i have ever been, The river spans long and wide, A perfect little place to catch the sun and chill out.

On one side of the river there is a little natural spa which has a hot water spring running into it, great for when you need to relax your muscles from all the paddling.

You can see all the fish in the water from the spa, they are not frigtened by your presence at all, if you throw coconut into the water they will crowd round you for there feed.

Be warned, the river is very deep in the middle and if you are not a very good swimmer, you should cross with someone who is to get to the spa, or the current will carry you away. This happened to a group of women who were there the same time as me, Its a good job there was some strong men around to help them!

Dominica is a lovely Island which has not been completely ruined by tourists and the rush to sell.

A perfect natural gods garden.
