On November 3, 1493, in an effort to find fresh water, Christopher Columbus landed on the large island of Guadeloupe during his second trip to the 'New World.'

Directly to the south, Terre-de-Haut is a commune of Guadeloupe as well as the most populous island of the archipelago of the les Saintes. It is also the most touristy municipality in les Saintes archipelago, with hotels bungalows, bars and restaurants.

Bourg des Saintes, the main port town, has many small guest-houses, eateries, French-Creole shops, and an active harbor. The Euro is coin of the realm, and French is the language of the day.
