Guadeloupe Vacations

Guadeloupe is more closely tied to its mother country, France, than most any other island in the Caribbean. With a European infrastructure and French-influenced restaurants, Guadeloupe offers the best of Caribbean relaxation and continental sophistication. The main islands offer a little something for everyone: volcanic jungle hikes on Basse Terre, ... Read more

Guadeloupe is amazing place where I was for 2 weeks. We tried travel around but without car is impossible. I personally enjoyed more Basse-Terre as there u can see all the beautiful nature around you. Grande-Terre is more for enjoying ocean and sunbathing.

Local from Deshaies, Guadeloupe

Live there. Great island! Should you wish to visit Guadeloupe: stay at Langley Resort Hotel Fort Royal Guadeloupe, which is situated in the most natural part of Guadeloupe: Deshaies. It is also close to the Jardin Botanique (only a 8 to 10 minute drive) and you can easily access the waterfalls by car which are just a 40 minute drive. Langley Resort Hotel Fort Royal Guadeloupe is the only hotel in Deshaies which is situated directly on the beach. They have their own Sail & Surf Club too. They have just received the Certificate of Excellence by Tripadvisor for 2012 and on Booking.com they have one of the highest guest satisfaction ratings of all hotels on Guadeloupe. For couples, groups and families, this is a great resort to stay at and explore Guadeloupe. The hotel's excursion team can help you explore Guadeloupe in many ways: from traditional to the more radical explorations! A car rental desk is also present. www.fortroyal.eu

Guadeloupe is a beautiful island, witha a crazy nature, big forests, a vulcano, many water bodies, natural pools..... I felt in love with Guadeloupe as soon as I landed there. Every beach is unique... you can find from white to black sand. Villages are so small an quite. Some places are even misterious. Food is something fantastic and lifestyle on the island is something everybody dreams of. My favourite beach is Grande Anse in Desaies..... wow. Also the islands around are fantastic, especially Les Saintes, both Terre de Bas and Terre de Haut. Guadeloupe is famous also for cocoa plantations and rhum. The offical drink is T punch, a mix of rhum, brown sugar and lime.... we spent many hours looking at the sea while sipping our T punch. Old women, along the streets sells a kind of local ice cream i'm still dreaming of. I suggets anybody to go!!!
