The route south is quite easy. Down to Florida and over to the Bahamas. The Bahamas and then on to the Turks provides lots of stops and an endless playground that stretches all the way to the next chain of islands starting with the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and then the Virgin Islands. On from there as the island chain starts to head further south you’ll find Guadeloupe.
Guadeloupe is a region of France. The currency is the Euro and the language is french. It consists of a large chain of islands; The two main islands are Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre.
