Guadeloupe Islands from Caribbean Boutique
Basse-Terre, Grande-Terre, La Désirade, Les Saintes, Marie-Galante, more than just a single travel destination, the Guadeloupe Islands are well known for the diversity of their breathtaking scenery and their distinctive Créole Art de Vivre.
The five islands comprising the Guadeloupe Archipelago are definitely Caribbean. Nevertheless, they are also true parts of France.
Popular with beach lovers, the Islands of Guadeloupe are also perfect for divers, golfers, and offer an amazing rainforest for hikers.
The Guadeloupe Islands enjoy a mix of African-Caribbean, French and Indian influences that can be observed everyday and all year round in culture, cuisine and celebrations! Créole cuisine has an exotic array of colours, flavours and aromas. The culinary art of the Guadeloupe Islands has become over the years one of the most refined in the Caribbean.
The Guadeloupe Islands boast quality hotels, private villas, resorts with spas and friendly family-run inns as well as a newly refurbished 18 hole international golf course in Saint-François.
Caribbean and French, the Guadeloupe Islands stand out from other Caribbean Isles. Due to this original duality, a memorable holiday is almost certainly guaranteed!
