Camping is free but risky
As it is free to but a tent almost wherever you want, you can save a lot of costs and awake at the beach.
Two times thefes had stolen things out of my tent, when i was away for short, or sleeping inside.
I wouldn`t say you could get robbed or hurt, just thefes wait for there chance to steel something.
So you should camp in groups and post a night guard or even look for a local you pay for guarding your tent(s).
As you save a lot of money with camping and not spending in a hotel (cheapest pension i found was 45dollar in 1987) i think its the only save possibility if camping wild outside of watched camp sides.
Dangerous animals: Lizards? Crabs? Tourist!
Health risks: Sunburn, diarrhea and intestinal parasites; bilharzia (schistosomiasis) is found in fresh water throughout Grande-Terre and in much of Basse-Terre.
There is no cholera, no malaria - in fact, there are no poisonous animals or plants. You won't be sleeping out in a hammock under a mosquito net in 100-degree heat with 100% humidity.
If you are of white...
If you are of white skin...tell every local you are NOT a metropolitan French (coming from mainland France), since they don't like them. And I can understand their feelings....
Anyway, generally speaking I did not find the Guadeloupe people as friendly with tourists as people from neigbouring islands.
