If you are traveling to Guadeloupe with the new, cheap Norwegian flights from the US (or from elsewhere) and are interested in getting ideas for where to stay in Gwada, finding out the top 30 best things to see and do here, plus want to get answers to common traveler questions (What’s the seaweed situation like? Is it easy to find wifi? What should I bring with me? What if I don’t speak French?), this e-book is for you!

Congratulations on making an excellent vacation choice! Known as the Butterfly Island, Guadeloupe is one of the most beautiful and diverse Caribbean destinations. It is also one of the least known: “Gwada” has remained the secret paradise of the Frenchies for years. There’s not much detailed information available in English, and even the latest printed English-language Guadeloupe guidebook dates back to the early 2000s. This is where the Quick Gwada Guide comes to your rescue. This e-book (63 pages) will tell you all the basics that you need to know before starting your vacation in “tropical France” – where to stay, what to do, what transportation options are like, where to book activities and ferry tickets, what to eat and where to enjoy nightlife. All the information is up-to-date as of February 2017. The Quick Gwada Guide represents hundreds of hours of explorations and encompasses tips collected from locals, visitors and expats.
