Vacations in the Guadeloupe Islands

Guadeloupe Islands

A Caribbean Classic with a French Accent

The Islands of Guadeloupe Overview

If Guadeloupe were candy, it would be the sampler box. This insular region of France provides hints of Continental life, blended with a rich mix of Caribbean cultures and a generous dose of nature. Open air markets are redolent with spices, while scents of fresh-baked croissants and cafe au lait waft from nearby sidewalk cafes. Rainforests cling to the slopes of a mile-high volcano, coastal trails lead to surf washed rock formations and out islands provide a glimpse of simpler times and the region's agricultural roots. Adventures await on land and sea, while beachside resorts offer a full range of civilized pleasures.
