Discover The Crossing Road The islands of Guadeloupe

Zigzagging between the mountains, the Crossing Road is the only lane that links Basse-Terre from East to West by the inlands. Also called " route des Deux Mamelles" , named after the two peaks that the road runs alongside, it crosses right in the middle of the tropical forest of Guadeloupe' s Natural Park. Along its 31 miles, there are many stops that you must make such as at the Zoological-botanical Park for example, at the Forest House or the Crayfish Waterfall. Very frequented during the day, the Crossing road becomes intriguing and impressive when night falls. The forest seems to have swallowed up all of the tourists who walk on the forest's trails during the day.

    Don't worry about getting nipped on the toe by a crayfish; the waterfall might be named after the species, but none have inhabited the pool for a long time.
