Guadeloupe is a two 'lobes' island, making it looking like a butterfly : the eastern lobe, 'Grande Terre', made of coral, nicknamed "Little Britany" and the western lobe, 'Basse Terre', volcanic, much more green and high, dominated by the 'Soufrière' volcano.
The tropical sea-side climate is humid, hot and softened by the trade winds.
There are two seasons in Guadeloupe called 'Lent' and 'Wintering'
- dry season, 'Lent', from January to June
- wet season ,'Wintering', from July to December.
