Part of the French Antilles, name it and Guadeloupe has it all. From rainforests, waterfalls, stunning villages and sandy white beaches, this country is truly a tropical paradise. It is sometimes referred to as the Butterfly Island because of its shape, which is basically a connection of two islands by a narrow channel. The left wing is called the Basse-Terre, having a green, lush and mountainous sights and the right wing is the Grande-Terre, the dry part with lots of beaches to visit. Guadeloupe is a great place to see with Basse-Terre for nature lovers and Grande-Terre as a great summer and shopping destination.
Bask in the sun on St. Anne beach or brush up on your French speaking skills in the shops and cafés. If you prefer the serenity of undersea ventures, the snorkeling and Scuba diving is world class here. After a great day of tourist adventures, partake in a plate of Colombo, (chicken, curry and rice) accompanied by a strong yet refreshing Ti Punch made with local white rum.
If you're up to exploring Guadeloupe, don't miss the spectacular views of waterfalls of Basse-Terre in which some requires some hours of hiking while the others are just a few walks away from the parking lot. Taking a tour at the local rum distilleries is certainly worthwhile especially the sampling part. A plate of Colombo (rice, chicken, curry) shouldn't also be missed as this is the region's typical food. In addition, your trip to Basse-Terre wouldn't be complete if you don't get to visit Guadeloupe National Park, a perfect place to visit for animal and nature lovers. There are also many things to do in town if you don't want to run into some crawlies. You still have the Zoological and Botanical Park to see. All these destinations can be seen when you rent a car in Guadeloupe.
