This is a very well done cultural center. I highly recommend taking a tour guide. Be sure to have lunch after the tour before you leave the property. It is devine!

We were very interested to learn that some of the original native Americans still have their area in this remote part of Dominica. It was interesting to learn of their history and to tour the reconstructed houses and see how they crushed sugar cane and made masks and straw baskets and items. We were lucky to visit when there were... More

Great place to learn about the Kalinago people´s history and Culture. We had a guide who told us a lot about the kalinago people. We also saw a dance show. Great handicrafts are sold directly by the women who makes it. Good prices.

As you drive through the village you can stop and try the authentic... More

Not sure why this is called "Carib Territory" here as the locals prefer to be known as "Kalinago." Their tour is excellent and an important insight into the history of the island of Dominica and themselves. An enthusiastic guide told the story of the Kalinago, using displays at the first stopping point, and then took me to see a series... More

The tour starts of with a 20 min information session concerning the rise and eventually fall of the kailinago people. It was interesting to learn about the discovery of the 'new world' through the eyes of the native people. The walk through the kailinago mock village was interesting, however due to it being low season there was no local entertainment.... More

My wife and I have had the pleasure of visiting Dominica on a number of cruise stops. If you have never visited the island before you are in for a treat - unless you prefer the over hyped, over priced cruise tours. This is an island that's perfect for just appreciating the beauty of a tropical island and its wonderful... More
