The diversity of our natural attributes make the Guadeloupe archipelago a godsend for the outdoorsy types, whether your sport is hiking, running, riding, fishing, you name it! Furthermore Guadeloupeans like to stay in good shape and eat healthy. As soon as the sun goes down you will see people jogging all over the 5 islands!

 

Being active is pretty much cultural
