Vieux-Habitants

Vieux-Habitants is a commune on Guadeloupe, a French overseas department in the Caribbean. Change things up with these side-trips from Vieux-Habitants: Jardin Botanique de Deshaies (in Deshaies), Parc des Mamelles, le Zoo de Guadeloupe (in Bouillante) and Plage de la Perle (in Rifflet). There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate the long history of Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere, contemplate the geological forces at La Soufriere Volcano, and don't miss a visit to Domaine de Vanibel.

For maps, photos, and tourist information, read our Vieux-Habitants day trip planning app.

Parc National

In a lush mountain landscape that remains one of the Caribbean's wildest areas, Parc National encompasses nearly 30,000 ha (74,000 ac) of rainforests intersected by hiking trails.
On the 9th (Mon), admire the sheer force of Cascade aux Ecrevisses and then get interesting insight from Tours. Here are some ideas for day two: admire all the interesting features of Route de la Traversee and then take in the dramatic scenery at Carbet Falls (Les Chutes du Carbet).

For maps, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, use the Parc National trip itinerary website.
