Apparently this island group is where Christopher Columbus first come upon the pineapple – what a tropical thing to be known, for, considering Guadeloupe is a French region – though in the very tropical Caribbean. Most visitors are French who pop in and out with the cruise ships avoiding the devastating hurricane season. Other than tourism the main trades are in sugar and rum production – I only mention that because of the implied quality of the cocktails and romance fields of sugar canes add to the landscape.

Dive sites, rainforests and resorts are the main attraction for visitors not interested in the unique Creole culture the islands French owners and ancestrally African inhabitants have influenced. The layout of the island looks like a mesh of roads connecting rural ports and hamlets.
