Come tubing on the largest and longest of Dominica's 365 rivers -- no wonder it's called the Nature Isle of the Caribbean.

A 40-minute drive takes you past the village of Massacre, named after the massacre of the Carib natives in 1674, and through the unspoiled Layou Valley. Watch for the village of Mahaut and Dominica Coconut Product factory in Belfast, where cosmetics, detergent and soaps are manufactured utilizing local raw materials such as coconuts, cocoa and hibiscus leaves.

At the launching site, a tubing guide will be waiting to take you on a breathtaking journey down the Layou River. There will be a short safety briefing before you begin your tubing adventure. The Layou Gorge with its precipitous tall cliffs that overhang the river, and its unspoiled natural vegetation, with several large cool freshwater pools offers the tubing adventure of a lifetime.

Enjoy the cool mountain breezes that sweep down the valley, gently rustling through the trees.
