Bouillante

— 5 nights
Bouillante is a commune in the French overseas region and department of Guadeloupe, in the Lesser Antilles.HistoryBouillante was founded about 1635 with the arrival of some of Guadeloupe's first colonists. Kids will enjoy Zoo de Guadeloupe (Parc des Mamelles) and Les Saintes. Venture out of the city with trips to La Soufriere Volcano (in Saint-Claude), Cascade aux Ecrevisses (in Parc National) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Sainte Rose). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Plage de Malendure, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint Pierre et saint Paul, stop by Cap Créole, and relax and rejuvenate at Le Spa du Parc aux Orchidees.
