The majority of the local population speaks Antillean creole, French is the official language, English is only common in business and tourist spheres.A visit to Guadeloupe can perfectly be combined with a trip to Dominia and perhaps Martinique or St. Cruise ship passengers don't have enough time to explore Guadelupe, but can spend the day with shopping and dining in Point-a-Pitre. Guadeloupe consists of two main islands, which are separated by a narrow sea channel called Riviere Salee.
On account of the shape of two islands, Grand-Terre and Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe is known as the Butterfly Island. The western Basse-Terre is mountainous and forested, with a huge national park.
The eastern Grand-Terre is smaller, flatter and more densely populated and has nice sand beaches.
