Saint François Flora and Fauna Nightlife Petite Terre Day Trip


Mary Jane and Granny travel
to Guadeloupe in the French West Indies ...

May-June 2003



Guadeloupe is in the French West Indies in the tropics of the Eastern Caribbean, at a latitude of     16© North of the Equator.

The culture is a Creole mix of French, African, and East Indian.

Guadeloupe has two main islands and many small ones.

It is shaped like a butterfly.

On the west is Basse-Terre, which is mountainous and wet with a volcano and rain forests.

On the east is Grande-Terre, with rolling hills and limestone cliffs and white sandy beaches.

Saint François, where we stayed, is in the southeast corner of Grande-Terre

This map also shows the outer islands, including Iles de la Petite Terre to the southeast of St. François.
