  • Lookout

    At many places, especially on Basse Terre with it's dramatic scenery, there are special lookout spots. Take a break from driving and sit down to take in some great views over mountains and jungle, or beaches or whatever else they have to throw at you. Because you're on vacation and what's the rush...?

  • Take a map with you when driving!

    Gwada has a pretty decent road network, but the information along the roads can be really bad. There are few signs, and many of the signs that do exist are poorly placed (like behind a tree or bus stop!) and sometimes dirty or damaged. So finding your way along these winding roads will be a real challange without some in car help. Luckily maps are...

  • Just getting into tourism

    Guadeloupe is very much into art. Most of the walls have murals on them.It has some nice features but it is not tourist friendly. They are just beginning to make more accomodations for those in the tourists. For example many of the facilities that tourists visit do not have adequate restroom facilities. It is best to walk with toilet tissue. The...

  • Les Saintes

    A group of 8 small mountainous islands about fifteen minutes by boat from the island of Basse Terre. The name comes from Christopher Columbus, who saw them on the All Saints Day. They were never inhabited by the indians, as they lack water, today two of the islands are inhabited and are on the agenda of most of the tourists coming to Guadeloupe.But...

  • Karukera - Island of nice waters

    Guadeloupe was baptised Karukera by the indians, which means "Island of nice waters".And there is a lot of water on the island, especially on mountainous Basse Terre, covered with tropical humid forest and with plenty of rivers and waterfalls. So while you will get wet sometimes, the rains (at least in the dry season in winter) never last, but...

  • Hiking in tropical forest

    Basse Terre is essentially one high mountainous chain, filled by tropical forest and half of which is classified as a national reserve. You will have at your disposal 200km of trails, some easy, some harder, but well indicated and accessible. The rain, then the sun, the mist coming from mountain rivers, the waterfalls and greenery everywhere -...

  • Under the sea

    Be it only snorkelling or scuba-diving, you will find plenty of opportunities to go under water in Guadeloupe. Coral reefs are not very far, sometimes only meters from the beach and there are lots of spots for scubadiving, opportunities to learn or to pass a degree.And there is also the "Reserve Cousteau" - actually not a real reserve, but a great...

    beautiful beaches, creeks, flowers, sents, tropical forest walks, exotic food, tropical weather, scuba dive. i really do miss the quality of life i had back there.almost everywhere you look, there is something beautiful to look at or smell or taste.

    The island is divided in 2 parts : Basse-Terre (west) and Haute-Terre (east). The western part is much more interesting, more green, with good snorkelling around the city of Bouillante...and a very pretty (but overcrowded by tourist) waterfall in central Basse-Terre part. Nothing very great....due to the fact it is a French colony....everything...

    When I decided to come here, I was looking for a leisure vacation. I wanted to burn on the beaches and drink coktails under a palm tree; but I also wanted to stay away from touritic resort or Club Med like organized activities as much as possible. The french ‘Art de vivre’ of the French West Indies archipelago attracted me. Any of you who visited...

    A few kilometers before Sainte-Rose, follow the panels towards the Museum of Rum. If you seek a distillery in Guadeloupe, you discovered it. RUM DISTILLERY : The Distillery was created in 1916, by family REIMONENQ. And like the majority of other distilleries of the island, the principal production of the Distillery of the Museum, is Agricultural...

    Spent one week at St. Anne. Met a guy in a cafe who offered me a small one room bungalow. Hung out at a small beach cafe with the Guadaloupean and Sedish owners. Drank beer and did the beach bum thing ;o)

    Take a ride up in the hills: You will see woodmade houses with BMW parked in front of it...Zouk music is usually present too. I met some people who had left everything to come and live there... They were telling me: people is nice, weather is great, no clothes to buy, no money to put on heat...A maintained paradise without any commercial spirit.
