    Guadeloupe Islands

    Located in the French West Indies, Guadeloupe is an archipelago of islands, all of which have their own unique flair and geography. Unlike other countries, it is not your typical Caribbean destination, overrun by resorts and chain restaurants. This country prides itself on preserving their vast variety of ecosystems and was declared a designated Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, one of only 25 in the world. Guadeloupe National Park protects the largest national forest in the Lesser Antilles. And La Soufriere, one of the most active volcanoes in the region, is the highest point in the Lesser Antilles, offering breathtaking views to neighboring islands. Foodies love the French and Creole inspired cuisine with each island adding their own unique ingredient to popular dishes.  In a nutshell, the Guadeloupe Islands offers a slice of France in the West in an unspoiled Caribbean environment.
