  • We visited Fort Saint Louis by not knowing what to expect. The Fort is still active, which means that soldiers live and train there. A guide is therefore mandatory. Visits are allowed between 9hres and noon and then from 14hres to 16hres. You have to buy a ticket to a small hut in the Savannah Park on the seaside side. We had the best guide either Maurice!!! A passionate and enthusiastic Guide! He loves history and it is evident!!! It makes us a superb fly of the history of Fort of France, Martinique and Josephine (small bonus!). Great visit. If you have an hour to go to Fort de France we recommend it!
