In Guadeloupe, a friend accommodated in us. We rented a car to Gosier at Raoul and Antoinette hopuse who offer good price : http://www.ifrance.com/raoulantoin/. They even rent boat. Twice, we were guided by a local ornithologist (Anthony Levesque). That allowed us to discover some interesting sites like the Anse du Canal Reserve.
We stayed 4 days in Dominique. We were based at Ophelia's home. It's a place away from Roseau where we saw some interesting birds. We rented a small 4WD with Courtesy Car Rental. We had a flat tyre the last day just before boarding and we had no supplement to paid, what we appreciated a lot. So, I advise this renter without moderation !
We saw few mongooses in Guadeloupe (India species introduice at the end of the XIXè century), Lizards and Iguanas and two snakes in Dominica : a Boa constrictor crushed on the road and a small snake during a walk.
