Vieux-Habitants is a commune on Guadeloupe, a French overseas department in the Caribbean. Change things up with these side-trips from Vieux-Habitants: Parc des Mamelles, le Zoo de Guadeloupe (in Bouillante), Plage de la Perle (in Rifflet) and Jardin Botanique de Deshaies (in Deshaies). There's much more to do: contemplate the geological forces at La Soufriere Volcano, sample the fine beverages at Distillerie Bologne, contemplate the long history of Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere, and make a trip to Domaine de Vanibel.
