What could be better than being with family or friends in the French West Indies? The islands of Guadeloupe are full of surprises for those who come to discover them, tropical forest, rivers with crystal clear waters, and above all a great variety of activities!
This summer, come to Guadeloupe to change your mind and make up for the time you lost during the government-imposed lockdown. It's time to plan everything that made you dream for 2 months:
The islands of Guadeloupe form an archipelago all in contrast, if Grande-Terre is a limestone plateau with little relief, Basse-Terre is on the contrary volcanic and hilly. These differences make the richness of the archipelago and its unique biodiversity where fauna and flora unite to form a magnificent ecosystem. To fully appreciate this, there is nothing like exploring the islands and visiting its parks and gardens. We particularly recommend the : Zoo of Guadeloupe: Located on the Route de la Traversée in the heart of Basse-Terre, the Zoo of Guadeloupe is a visit not to be missed. You will discover the fauna and flora of the Antilles and Guyana. Fun and ideal for families, you will love this park in the middle of nature. Jardin de Valombreuse : The largest and one of the oldest botanical gardens of the island with more than 1000 botanical species, is a treasure not to be missed!

The Côte-sous-le-vent is one of the most beautiful regions of the island! The string of towns that form Deshaies, Pointe-Noire, Bouillante and Vieux-Habitants will plunge you into the Guadeloupe of yesteryear. Typical, and preserved these towns gather picturesque villages, rivers among the most beautiful of the island and authentic tourist sites. Do not miss : The Habitation Côte-sous-le-vent: In the township of Pointe-Noire, the former house of wood, welcomes you.
