(4.8/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
A UNESCO biosphere reserve, Guadeloupe National Park encompasses tropical rainforests, lush coastal forests, waterfalls, and mangroves.

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.

  • The Park is very well committed, well-kept records, a lot of road signs, and the internet site for hiking is great! Continue in this way is great!

  • Beautiful rainforest, point its pretty well preserved tourist pollution which is very pleasant. predict right shoe because soils are often very slippery and sometimes quite complicated walks.

  • A beautiful place. Do not miss the tour of Grand Etang by hiking path. Provide good shoes because the path is not easy, but it is a magical place. It feels immersed in the past and we would be surprised to see emerge from this Lake a dinosaur head! Provide a tan cream...
