Reader comments on the book:

  • I am planning another trip and just found out about a very thorough and comprehensive English travel guide on Deshaies (with things to do in surrounding Pointe Noire and Sainte Rose too) . I…wish I had it on my last trip there! Bravo to the author!!! Thank you. – From Tripadvisor reader, BungeeJumper852, Miami, FL (01/31/18)
  • I could not agree more about this excellent new guidebook. I just got my copy and it is -extremely- comprehensive and helpful. If you are staying in or around Deshaies, you absolutely owe it to yourself to get it. There is so much good information. – From Tripadvisor reader, Radio71 (02/02/18)
  • Thank you, Jambo! Great info in your guide book (finally in English) and really thorough. I already reserved a rental bungalow with the information inside for our upcoming trip and now have tips as well on how to get there, where to eat, what to bring and what to do in the area on Basse-Terre. Cheers! – From Jocelyn L., online purchaser (02/06/18)
  • We just returned from vacationing in the Deshaies area and found “Jambo’s Essential Travel Guide to Deshaies, Guadeloupe” an invaluable resource. Thank goodness it was in English, making it very easy to use. It contains many helpful suggestions and local contact information. – From TripAdvisor reader, EastenderLI (02/22/18)
  • I wanted to share this with others in the same spot I found myself in, which was to use Google Translate because I couldn’t find anything substantial in English about Guadeloupe. It’s available here: Thought this could be useful. I especially like that it’s a PDF so you can put it on your phone and take with you when traveling even though you might not have cell service. – From TripAdvisor reader, FinallyInDaSun (08/29/18)
  • I recommend the Jambo Press Guidebook. Our French is rusty and the guide was incredibly helpful and informative. We were able to navigate restaurants, local beaches, cool destinations and other critical info (Banks, tipping, dinner reservations!) quite easily. I strongly recommend purchasing it BEFORE you start to plan your trip. – From TripAdvisor reader, LizB (01/05/22)
  • Jambo’s guide is a wonderful trove of info for the Deshaies area. – From TripAdvisor reader, Dave B (07/02/22)
