The Carib tribe lived along Indian River; although I doubt they named it that. They obviously used it as a source of fresh water, but also for fishing and farming. Once again, Hollywood made it here for filming Pirates of the Caribbean. At least they ...

French translation is "Two Rivers". Not a bad hike. I took a bus out of Calibishe, and then hiked to the town of Bense. From there the road turns into track for about a mile. It's an absolutely beautiful hike mostly along a ridge. Eventually you find a ...

Batibou Bay is by far the nicest beach on the island. There was an excellent snorkeling reef right out front. A real rough 4X4 road if you're driving or about a 20 minute walk through the jungle. Best part about it is if you go to the bar and ...
