Shopping In Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe Shopping Overview

Guadeloupe's homegrown coffee and distilled rums top our shopper's list. Imported luxury items such as perfume, crystal, cosmetics and fashions are carried by the island's modest array of boutiques and shops. Souvenirs are standard island crafts - you have to look closely for quality items. Most of Guadeloupe's shops are closed during the hot mid-day hours and on Saturday afternoons.
