Country Information

Guadeloupe is a French overseas region that is located in the Caribbean Sea. Like many other Caribbean islands, Guadeloupe has tropical climate, sandy beaches, beautiful mountains and beautiful coral reefs. But Guadeloupe has even more – the French culture sets the island apart from its neighbors.

There are two main islands: Basse-Terre and Grande – Terre, where you can find the main resorts and restaurants there. Basse-Terre has volcanic mountains while Grande-Terre has flat rolling hills. Expats will find several historical attractions on these two islands. It has become a great place for expats to retire, especially from France and Quebec.

Healthcare in Guadeloupe 

Expats going to Guadeloupe should consult their doctor or a travel health clinic about their vaccinations before departure. Expats should make sure that all their standard vaccinations have been refreshed and updated before entering Guadeloupe. General health care facilities and emergency medical services are available in hospitals. However, expats in Guadeloupe would want to access to private hospitals and clinics. International health insurance is critical for expatriates residing in Guadeloupe. It will cover emergency evacuation and some plans will even offer the option of treatment in the USA. Expatriates will most likely want to obtain medical care in the United States for any serious medical conditions as the island has limited facilities.
