CHRISTINE’S TRIP

TO GUADELOUPE, FRANCE

7 NIGHTS/5 STOPS 

Caribbean nature and wildlife.

.

Christine, her husband, and their teenage daughter live in New York. They like to travel off the beaten path and love the outdoors and nature. They especially enjoy discovering different local cultures and populations. Christine loves the more intimate places and avoids crowded locations.
 
“ During the spring season, Christine and her family travelled to Guadeloupe. They were looking for a paradisiac destination that is not too touristy, easy to organise, and cheap. Guadeloupe was the perfect match. You benefit from the French infrastructure but still enjoying the Caribbean atmosphere and climate. They climbed a Volcano in the wildest part of the island, Basse-terre, spent some time in the island’s remote jungles, and niched in a cozy villa by the water in Grande Terre.»

GOOD TO KNOW

  • People are nice. They speak French.
  • Very Good food in restaurants Mix of French and Caribbean cuisine.
  • Easy to do for a long weekend from the US east coast.
  • South of Grande terre is the touristy part with the big beaches. Basse Terre is much wilder.
  • Not worth to stay longer in Point à Pitre.
