Guadeloupe is a unique island in the Caribbean. They call it the butterfly island because of its unique shape. This country is an overseas collective of France and has a cool blend of French culture with Caribbean flare. On the left side of the island you will find it is much more rugged and has a dormant volcano that helped to form much of its unique topography. There is a great hike you can take if you are looking for something to do aside from sitting on the beach. This is the best way to see the beauty of the island and all that it has to offer.
