Since Guadeloupe in general is not exactly a place to find all-inclusive resorts, the best place to look for affordable accommodation is at hotels. And best of all, the hotels are located quite close to the beaches as well so you won’t have problems looking for places to have fun.
Climate and tourist season
With a tropical climate cooled by the trade winds (Les Alizes), Guadeloupe is blessed with stable temperature year round. The dry season lasts between December and May, being considered the high season. The wet season – June to November – is the low season when you can benefit from really good prices both for accommodation and airfare. However, rain showers can occur pretty much all year round but the sky clears up quite quickly so rain cannot exactly ruin your vacation. On the coastal regions, average temperatures range between 22C/72F and 30C/86F, year round.
Traditionally, Christmas and New Year’s are the busiest and most popular times to visit the islands
