Guadeloupe vacation packages are a great way to enjoy everything this Caribbean island has to offer. When you combine accommodation, car hire and flights, you can radically cut the cost of vacations, leaving the balance to be spent on things that really matter.
And with attractions like the Memorial ACTe slavery museum, superb French-Caribbean fusion eateries, and all manner of beach activities available, that extra spending money can come in really handy.
You might want to avoid Guadeloupe's hurricane season, which lasts from June to November. March and April or November and December are the best times to go, mixing great weather with lower hotel rates than peak season (late December to March).
Langley Resort Fort Royal is a good all-round accommodation option, with a convenient beachfront location in the popular Deshaies resort. Water sports like windsurfing are available, there's a kids club and a superb restaurant - and airport shuttles get there in one hour.
Le Cocoteraie in Saint-François is another hotel which suits almost any kind of visitor, with a massage room, sailing facilities, a large outdoor pool and fine French food at La Varangue restaurant.
