January 7-14, 2023: Guadeloupe, French Caribbean
Ring in the new year island hopping around our favorite Caribbean archipelago. Guadeloupe and its islands are comprised of the main islands of Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre which form le papillon (the butterfly) and the smaller islands of Les Saintes, Marie-Galante, and La Désirade. We will spend one night in Pointe-à-Pitre, three nights in jungle treehouses on Basse-Terre, and three nights on the beach of St. François, exploring the rich culture of Guadeloupe as we visit Mémorial ACTe, Les Saintes, La Soufrière volcano, the rhumeries of Marie-Galante, local cuisine, snorkeling, and an optional day trip to La Désirade.
March 11-18, 2023: Martinique, French Caribbean
Spring break in the Antilles is calling. Our private créole villa on the slopes of Le François will be our home base as we explore the island for the week. Highlights include a Fort-de-France street art tour, Mont Pelée, a yole initiation, snorkeling, rhum distillery visits, Cap 110, Jardin de Balata, and cruising through the islets of Le François with a local fisherman.
