Guadeloupe Vacation Wrap-Up
My Guadeloupe vacation is over A quick 4 hour non-stop journey from Baltimore-Washington Airport put Guadeloupe within reach for me. My roundtrip flight ended up costing $220. Well worth it for this fun long weekend.
My favorite thing from the whole trip to Guadeloupe was the view of the Caribbean Sea from the infinity pool at Inifiniti Blue Guesthouse. If I had an automatic transmission car, I would seriously consider living here.
I would float in the pool all day long.
My favorite food from the trip was fresh fruit. For breakfast everyday we had fresh fruit from the island. Most of it I had no idea what exactly what it was but who cares, it was yummy.
The little markets on the sides of the road sell fresh fruit and my favorite baby bananas!
I bought a bunch to snack on. They are a little sweeter than bananas we are used to and are really, really tasty.
There were really no issues with mosquitos on our Guadeloupe trip. Like most tropical countries in the Western Hemisphere, the Zika virus is here too. I used bug spray at night but not because I was having problems with mosquitos. It was more of a preventative measure.
We had mosquito nets over the bed.
And this awesome tiny tennis racket is a mosquito killer! There is a button to press while you swing a the mosquitos. It electrocutes them! It is such a neat little gadget but only had the need to use it once the whole trip.
The weather was perfect- in the 80’s everyday, not too humid with a few showers lasting a couple of minutes. Mostly it was sunny and gorgeous weather. It certainly beat the February weather back home.
I got some swimming time in the infinity pool. Next time I need to remember to reapply my sun block after getting out of the pool!
The floating air mattresses in the pool were so lovely. It was hot in the sun and floating in the pool was a good cool-off activity.
Since we were on the nature side of the Guadeloupe, the flora was colorful and in abundance.
I’m eager to explore the flat side of Guadeloupe, Grand-Terre. I saw photos from some women on the airplane ride home and the beaches were white sand and the terrain flat. A black sand beach is quite a sight to see though.
This Guadeloupe vacation was an excellent, fun, and quick trip. If you live in Boston, New York, or Baltimore, cheap flights are available on Norwegian Air for the time being. Find a good deal and plan a week or long weekend in the Caribbean.
I’m on another airplane today heading to Kauai! Stop back to read about my Hawaiian adventures!
