Trip Report

2 weeks in Guadeloupe

Beautiful palm-fringed beaches line the coast, and the interior of both islands is lush and mountainous, with waterfalls, hot springs, an active volcano, and hiking trails.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    With some days more, we wanted to visit the big market in Pointe à Pitres

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Not really wrong, but you have to check if there are a lot af algae before going.

  • Packing tips?

    It seems obvious but do not forget your swim suit and if you have a mask for snorkeling. Also, make sure to have enough sunscreen when you go to Petite-Terre (we literally burnt on that day!).

  • Transportation Tips?

    There are bus but you don't know when they pass, so rent a car.

  • Any surprises?

    When we hiked on La Souffrière we did not see the view because of the clouds. So make sure you go on a day without clouds.
