The Jungle Bay’s concept remains to offer visitors a nature-based experience and to visit authentic and secluded places, which is reflected in our current Activity Schedule.

We ask everyone for their assistance in following the guidelines and the instructions issued by the Government and implemented by our staff to make your vacation a safe, yet fun and special experience on the Nature Island of Dominica.
