A UNESCO biosphere reserve, Guadeloupe National Park encompasses tropical rainforests, lush coastal forests, waterfalls, and mangroves. Explore numerous hiking trails varying in difficulty and length, or climb to the top of an active volcano, which rises to a height of 1,467 m (4812 ft). The reserve shelters around 800 different trees and flowers (including 100 types of orchids) and numerous birds and mammal species. Admire the picturesque landscape from behind the wheel, driving along the 25 km (16 mi) long Traversee road. Before you set off, it's a good idea to pick up an official brochure at the Guadeloupe tourism office.

najbližší a asi najznámejší je vodopád pri hlavnej ceste, smer Mahaut. Malé parkovisko si všimnete na poslednú chvíľu a býva tam stisk aj pre turistické autobusy.

The small parking lot you will notice at the last minute and there is a depress for the tourist buses. Before this waterfall there is a possibility to make tours in the park where the palms and palms and palms are themselves:D From the south side of the island there are also beautiful waterfalls also on the longer the overthrow of the rainforest flavors du Carbet. It leads there to a crukolomná Strma and places a Uzka road and is truly overwhelming if there you meet the bus in the Counterdirection... So far I do not understand how they got there. ' There is Also a large parking lot. From the city of Basse Terre you can get to the car park under the volcano, but it's still such an hour and a half way on foot. The above is of course cold and moist so you definitely need to take suitable footwear, clothing and rain... And insanely up blows and rains if sitting on top of the cloud.

Peaceful without distractions. A must see.
A splendor that deserves.. Pity for the Soufrière became difficult to access since an earthquake in 2004 but would she be so beautiful? If + accessible!!
