There are many places to explore in Guadeloupe using your car rental. Le Moule on the east coast of Grande-Terre served as an early French capital and is full of the authentic character of the island. There are art galleries, a fish market, restaurants and a fascinating archaeological museum. At Pointe-a-Pitre, where the two main islands meet, is the Musee St-John Perse, an original colonial building, dedicated to the life and works of the Nobel Laureate Alexis Léger, the island's most famous poet (1887-1975). For the more adventurous tourist, the Reserve Cousteau is famous for being one of the best scuba diving sites in the world. The protected waters are teeming with sea life and there are even a couple of sunken wrecks to explore. All in all, you will have a great road trip with Sixt car hire.
