The French-Creole speaking islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe are said to be the best kept secret among North-American travelers. Both islands are apart of France, although they are closer to New York than Paris. You will be able to experience authentic French culture without venturing far.

 

Water lovers will enjoy top-notch diving and snorkeling on Martinique. Here you will find a treasure trove of deep-water sunken ships, including 14 boats sunk by the eruption of Mount St. Peele in 1902.


 

Guadeloupe or “Gwada” has a deep connection with African-Creole culture. The island is known for its rich music heritage. “Gwo-Ka” is a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage art form blends African call-and-response singing, Guadeloupe-Creole lyrics, dancing, and traditional Ka drum rhythms, and dancing.

 

For all food lovers, this is the place to be. The French Caribbean’s cuisine is a blend of spicy Afro-Indian, Afro-French, and Afro-Caribbean. Fresh seafood is a staple on most menus as well as local Creole favorites like boudin creole (blood sausage) and accras (cod fritters).
