Pointe-Noire, Guadeloupe

— 9 nights
Pointe-Noire is a commune on Guadeloupe, a French overseas department in the Caribbean. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Reve de Sable and Le Tapeur. Let the collections at Musee Costumes et Traditions and Memorial Acte capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Ranch de Moreau (in Goyave), Deshaies (Eglise Saint Pierre et saint Paul, Plage de Grande Anse, &more) and Cimetiere de Morne-A-l'Eau (in Morne-A-l'Eau). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Notre Dame des Larmes, visit a coastal fixture at Anse a la Barque, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Distillerie Bologne, and get to know the resident critters at Zoo de Guadeloupe (Parc des Mamelles).

Nature Isle of the Caribbean
The volcanic island nation of Dominica represents the youngest island in the Lesser Antilles. Such is evidenced in the geothermal action of the island's many hot springs, with relaxing dips in the hot sulfur spring water among the most popular things to do in Dominica. The unspoiled appearance of much of the nation provides a natural backdrop for a wealth of ecotourism adventures, including swimming, hiking, and snorkeling. The main urban areas showcase the ethnic diversity of the land once contested by the British and the French, with a number of local eateries serving West Indian and Creole dishes, and a whole lot of dancing and music to be enjoyed.
