Travel photos : Guadeloupe 2007 : Pointe-à-Pitre


Our first destination at Guadeloupe was the economical hub of the island, the city of Pointe-à-Pitre. Next to the city at Les Abymes there is the most modern airport of the Caribbean, Pole Caraïbes. That's were we arrived from Paris-Orly.

The city seemed a bit decayed compared to my previous visit about eight years earlier. Most of the small guest houses and hotels had ceased operation. Luckily Maison de la Marie-Galante was still there. Another hotel still in operation was Saint-John Perse but we preferred the more modest first one.

We visited Pointe-à-Pitre thrice although one of them was pretty short. The photographs at this page are taken during the two other visits and they are only partly in the chronological order.
