  • Peaceful without distractions. A must see.
  • Creato nel 1989, il Parco Nazionale della Guadalupa è uno dei dieci parchi nazionali della Francia, e il primo crea all'estero. È composto da una moltitudine di paesaggi, al riparo di una delle foreste tropicali meglio conservate delle Piccole Antille, eccezionali spazi marini composti da scogliere, praterie e un vasto mangove. Oggi, la sua vasta area di appartenenza gli consente di impegnarsi nello sviluppo sostenibile a fianco dei comuni che aderiscono alla carta del territorio. Da consigliare
