The most unique aspect of Easter in Guadeloupe is the traditional dish known as “matete”.  This is a local land crab dish that people look forward to relishing all year.

Many set crab traps a month ahead of Easter. The mangrove crabs are then bought and kept alive until the Easter weekend when they are prepared in traditional ways and enjoyed as part of a family feast.
