(c) 2019 Island Runaways. Website created with Wix.





Guadeloupe is more than a single beautiful island -- it's a collection of beautiful islands, an archipelago. From Grande Terre with its popular tourist enclaves to hilly Basse Terre with authentic villages, Guadeloupe features beaches, snorkeling, diving, rum tasting, botanical gardens, and a host of other activities for a fabulous Caribbean getaway!


Join us as we explore the two large isles, and Guadeloupe's smaller gems: Marie Galante, La Désirade, and Les Saintes.
