Sainte-Anne

— 1 night
Although the surrounding area continues to depend on agriculture, Sainte-Anne thrives largely thanks to tourism, offering visitors modern infrastructure and plenty of chances to experience the authentic local lifestyle.
On the 3rd (Sat), get outside with Gwadloop Decouverte and then kick back and relax at St. Anne Beach. On the 4th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get engrossed in the history at Kreol West Indies and then appreciate the extensive heritage of Pointe des Chateaux.

To see other places to visit, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Sainte-Anne trip planner.

New York City, USA to Sainte-Anne is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Atlantic Standard Time (AST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from New York City in April, with highs in Sainte-Anne at 85°F and lows at 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to drive to Deshaies.

Deshaies

— 3 nights
The sleepy town of Deshaies walks the line between tradition and development, possessing an international feel while also sticking true to its island roots.
Explore Deshaies' surroundings by going to Zoo de Guadeloupe (Parc des Mamelles) (in Bouillante) and Cascade aux Ecrevisses (in Parc National). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin Botanique de Deshaies, view the masterpieces at Reve de Sable, get outside with Cascade le Saut de L'Acomat, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Deshaies trip simple and quick.

You can drive from Sainte-Anne to Deshaies in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 85°F in April, and nighttime lows around 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 7th (Wed) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Experience a lively mixture of French and Afro-Caribbean culture on your Guadeloupe vacation. The archipelago consists of two main islands connected by bridges spanning a mangrove swamp, and a number of smaller islands to the south. The island of Grande Terre is mostly flat and arid, offering numerous scenic beaches and lively small towns, while Basse Terre features verdant jungles and mountainous terrain, crowned by a tall volcano. On a tour of Guadeloupe, you can enjoy a variety of beach activities, partake in hiking through a national park, and bask in the vibrant atmosphere of charming towns and villages.
