Dominica River Life
Dominica is famously home to 365 rivers. Some say that already impressive number actually swells to 400 during particularly active rainy periods. The best-known of these rivers are wide and long, offering cool and smooth boating. Others rage and churn yielding mild rapids worthy of tubing and canyoning adventures. Much more common, though, are gentle rock-filled streams like this one. This is where Dominica river life truly plays out. An essential component of rural society in Dominica, it’s not unusual to find local residents washing dishes or clothes along banks like these. Likewise, they’re great spots for practicing natural hair care. More so than any beach, these streams offer an uncommon entrée into the beating heart of rural Dominica. One that any culturally curious traveler will certainly not want to miss.
