Guadeloupe. Known locally as the Butterfly Island, because of the shape of two of its major islands. It is a group of islands in the eastern Caribbean located southeast of Puerto Rico. Scuba diving and snorkeling are the main activities in Guadeloupe with an amazing assortment of tropical fish, that can be seen in water less than a meter deep. For those who can’t or don’t want to swim, glass-bottomed boat trips are always on offer. Located at the center of the Caribbean islands, Guadeloupe is 2 200 km away from Florida.
