Market for ESL teachers/tutors in Guadeloupe?

Hello,

I'm considering a move to Guadeloupe with my French husband. I have many years experience teaching English in Asia, a BA from a US university, but no TEFL.

Thanks,
Karin

budget accommodation

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows about any budget accommodation in Guadeloupe. Lonely Planet's definition of the word "budget" seems to differ from mine.

I'm not into beach resorts, boutique type guest houses and that sort of thing. I know from previous visits to the Caribbean that there are almost always genuinely budget prices places. They probably don't have any sort of web presence, but are normally known to the locals. They might have e-mail addresses.

I'm also probably going…

Will things be opened on Easter weekend

Hi,

We will be traveling to Guadeloupe on Good Friday and leaving on Easter Monday. We are wondering if anything will be opened such as places to eat, supermarkets etc. We are wondering if we need to bring groceries with us.

And any recommendation on car rental places too? Good rates and near the ferry.

Thanks in advance for all your help.
