Dominica Shopping and nightlife

Shopping in Dominica

Although Dominica's duty-free shopping scene isn't as established as many other Caribbean isles, new outlets are planned; pick up cut-price jewellery, tobacco, sunglasses and clothing. Elsewhere, excellent buys include local handicrafts such as hats, bags and rugs made from vetiver grass joined with wild banana strands. Pick up bags made from two layers of reeds stained by burying underground at the Carib Reserve Crafts Centre.

Shopping hours

Mon-Fri 0800-1300 and 1400-1600, Sat 0800-1300.

Nightlife in Dominica

Dominica's after-dark revelry centres on live music joints and bars, together with a growing number of cafés and dance halls. La Robe Creole in Roseau is a favourite hangout and has nightly dance music and live bands at weekends. Popular local discos include The Warehouse, Scorpio, and Doubles International. Folklore evenings with authentic costumes and music run throughout high season - ask your hotel for tips on what's on.
