Among banana plantations and sugar cane lies the tropical forest of Martinique, the French territory in the Caribbean Sea. Nature is certainly the most beautiful memory you will have of our Costa cruise. The island consists of mountains, including the soaring Pelée volcano to the north. On the cruise to Martinique we visit the beautiful gardens at Ajoupa, then travel by Jeep among banana plantations and tropical forests. We’ll set off on a search for unspoiled nature in the forest of Saint-Joseph and the Coeur Bouliki river Then we’ll leave the mountains behind to reach the beautiful beaches: Les Salines, with its white sand, is the most beautiful, and on the eastern peninsula of Presqu’Île de la Caravelle, the beaches of Tartane and Anse l’Étang stand out, bathed by the Atlantic. In Fort de France, Martinique's main port, we visit the old town with Fort Saint Louis, the colourful central market and the central gardens of La Savane.
