"Think French!!! Outstanding..." Guadeloupe Local Custom Tip by seagoingJLW

Guadeloupe Local Customs: 18 reviews and 11 photos


Think French!!! Outstanding buys in perfumes, Parisian fashions, silk items, porcelain, crystal, liqueurs and vintage wine can be found.

The standard Guadeloupe souvenir is a puffed up, porcupine spined puffer fish (poisson lune). I suppose, if you wanted to, you could make a lampshade out of it as the islanders suggest.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
