first guidebook to group all the French islands under one
cover, this unique and affrodable book is a must for those in-the-know travelers
who crave sophistication, fabulous food, and that certain
"je ne sais quoi" when vacationing in the tropics.
Different from ordinary travel guides (which often work better
than Ativan for insomnia), Rum & Reggae Guidebooks are
opinionated, irreverent, funny, informative and geared toward
the more sophisticated and savvy traveler of any age who avidly
avoids the tourist swarms.
Rum & Reggae's French Caribbean takes on the infamous
Gaullic attitude with its own "savoir faire" to
the "Tricolor" islands. This book shows the reader
the inside scoop of the oh-so-fabulous St. Barts (St. Barthélemy),
the best way to navigate the often manic St. Martin (both
the French and Dutch sides), the diversity of Guadeloupe,
the chicness of Les Saintes, the unknown Marie-Galante, and
the Parisian outpost of the Caribbean, Martinique. All the
information and recommendations a traveler needs to know are
in these pages; from hotels, resorts, villa rentals, and cultural
and recreational activities, to restaurants, branché
cafés, hot clubs and beaches (including nude ones -
remember - this is France).
