I have booked a group sports holiday in Terre-de-Haut but as I might miss the last boat from Trois Riviere if I arrive on the same day the holiday starts, I took a flight the day before to ensure I get to the island on time.
For that one extra night I found a homestay just 2 km from the airport. I might be able to join the transfer of part of the group arriving the next day to go to Terre-de-Haut, but it's pricey and I would rather see a bit of the island. I don't drive so the other option to the transfer is the local bus.
So my question - is it safe as a solo female traveler with a cabin bag to take local buses in Guadeloupe daytime? Is it safe to walk the 20 minutes from the airport to the accomodation in the afternoon? How long time approximately does it take to go from Pointe-a-Pitre area to Trois Riviere with the bus on a Monday? Are there nice stops along the way? How much does the boat over to Terre-de-Haut cost? Do I need to book in advance or can I just show up?
