Caribbean Dream - French West Indies

Hey guys!

This is my second article about Caribbean destination after the Dominican Republic’s post.
My second step of this Caribbean dream will be French West Indies.
Firstly we will stop in Guadeloupe, next in Martinique and last in Saint Martin.


  • A little friendly reminder about geography:

Guadeloupe is a French overseas territory, is an island group in the southern Caribbean Sea. Resembling a butterfly with its 2 largest islands. The official language is the French and the currency Euro.

     My first favourite place in Guadeloupe is the ZOO , exactly « Le Parc des Mamelles » near the village of Bouillante.
This is the best way to spend an unusually ballad in the rainforest with wooden walkways suspended above the forest floor.                                                               
It was amazingly beautiful with all its flowers and palm trees. The animals were very cool: different kinds of monkeys, felines, and parrots.  That’s a surprising suit between a botanic garden and a zoo.

Near the ZOO i had the pleasure to savour a tasty main in the restaurant « Les Amaryllis ». Situated at the rain forest of Guadeloupe i tasted some creole dishes with a magnificent panoramic view of the rain forest.

     My second favourite place in Guadeloupe is « La Cascade aux Écrevisses » ; this place in the heart of the rainforest in the National Park of Guadeloupe is a paradisiac waterfall where you can swim under the jungle canopy. Add to all this advantages it’s an easy-to-go quick journey in the jungle.
Only disadvantage some days there is too many people and tourists.

     To finish with the Guadeloupe’s gems; Why not to have a break in the beach? I will take you to Sainte-Anne Beach, a beautiful beach perfect for swimming, snorkelling and beach game. However like for the waterfall some day there is so many tourists.

  •  A little friendly reminder about geography:

Martinique is a French overseas territory too in the southern Caribbean Sea. The official language is the French, the currency Euro and the capital is Fort-De-France
I will present just one and only place in Martinique: the “Jardin de Balata”. A wonderful botanic garden located about 10 km outside of Fort-de-France.
This is an unusual, calm and lovely garden to do a little romantic or family walk.
Panoramic views are exceptional and moreover there is 3 hectares with 3 000 varieties of tropical plants from around the world and many type of palm trees.

Saint Martin

  •  A little friendly reminder about geography:

Saint Martin is part (87 km2) of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean Sea. It comprises 2 separate countries, divided between its northern French side, also called Saint Martin, and its southern Dutch side, Sint Maarten. The capital is Philipsburg.

Saint Martin Island in particularly the Maho beach is famous for the Princess Juliana International Airport adjacent to the beach. This is one of the few places in the world where aircraft can be viewed in their flight path just outside the end of the runway.
Moreover sea is clear, turquoise and there is a beautiful beach of white sand so as to finish our "French West Indies" tour.
