On the beach at Bas du Fort

Many of us like to travel and explore the world around us. Some might like to rough it on adventures, others prefer ecotours with operators concerned about conserving our environment, and still others might prefer the comforts of civilization. (Of course, many vacations will include all of these.) These pages provide you with access to sites for budgeting and planning your own trip and to locations for your travel professional to schedule for you if you desire. The Civilized Explorer encourages responsible travel regardless of your hardship level, and the French West Indies provides an example of using tourism to provide the funds for development and protection of rainforests, underwater national parks, and even active volcanoes.

Travel Guides

Our preferences are for the more relaxed vacation, where we might stay in a nice air conditioned hotel and eat wonderful meals in world class restaurants after a hard day on the beach. Please see our French West Indies page for an overview of our information on St. Barth, the friendly isle, Guadeloupe, the civilized island, and Martinique, the cosmopolitan island. We also recommend travel- related books. See PaperView for reviews and ordering information.
