After some days without any school, recovered from Zika I got in Martinique, we took the plane to get for some days to Guadelope and booked a rental car for getting around the island.
I booked our stay through AirBnB and if you will ever make it to Guadeloupe, I can highly recommend the accommodation of Dora & Bruno - they are great hosts, Dora is an excellent cook and super fun and having a lot of insider tipps. It's a bit difficult to find tough (or we were too stupid) but we made it and for a welcome we got directly a freshly cuttet coconut from the garden.
Guadeloupe gets called as the Sister Island of Martinique, however I had the feeling they are different and Guadeloupe had some other highlights to discover.
What I can recommend to do in Guadeloupe:
Altough I thought after St. Lucia I will never step again into the horrible ferry, we had too as we continued our trip by visiting Dominica, another islands closely to Guadeloupe Luckily, the sea was calm and the ride not too bad. More about Dominica can you find here.
