Planning a St Lucia vacation? Then whether you are staying at an all-inclusive resort, a regular EP (European Plan) hotel or a private villa you really must get out and about if you are to truly discover the essence of St Lucia. And if you are cruising to St Lucia your time with us will be limited but despite this you too would have missed the best that St Lucia has to offer if you didn’t get out and about to get a feel of what we are all about.
Well no worries here because there are so many St Lucia tours to choose from that even if you spent a whopping 14 days with us the time would go by more quickly than you can imagine once you consider all that there is to see and do both on and off the island. Yes it’s true – there are a lot of things to do in St Lucia from exploring the Castries Market – voted Number 3 food market in the world by no less than National Geographic. Explore Soufriere, hike the Tet Paul Trail, do the rainforest tram ride or zip-line in Foresterre and we are just getting warm.
Today most of the St Lucia excursions have websites, allowing you to discover all about them long before you arrive and most will let you book online too. And speaking about things to do in St Lucia one of the best and sometimes overlooked things to do down here is the St Lucia Helicopter Airport Transfer. You see most St Lucia hotels are on the north of the island while the island’s main airport is on the south some 90 minutes away. After a long flight into St Lucia why not cut down your time to your hotel by taking the airport shuttle which takes about 15 – 20 minutes up to Castries and then from there it’s a short drive to your hotel. Or do it the reverse way and enjoy your last views of St Lucia from the air when you are heading back home by using the helicopter shuttle service then. And if you really want to splurge then use the helicopter both when you arrive and when departing St Lucia as the views of the island from above are well worth seeing more than once.
If you are cruising to St Lucia it is best if you research St Lucia tours in depth and all the things to do while here as chances are you’ll only be able to do one St Lucia excursion while your ship is docked in St Lucia. Cosol Tours is quite popular with cruisers and many can’t stop talking about Cosol’s warmth and hospitality. Use forums such as Trip Advisor and Cruise Critics to see what visitors before you have said and let this information be your guide to whatever is best for you to do in St Lucia.
And if you are here for a longer stay be sure to check out the Friday Night Gros Islet Street Party or the Anse La Raye Friday Night Seafood Fiesta. Then too there are the many restaurants and Bar in the Rodney Bay Village and over in the recently upgraded Rodney Bay Marina, all of which are worth a visit. Discover a favourite bar or create your very own pub crawl.
So as I’ve said before there are so many things to do in St Lucia from the formal well organized excursions to the informal explorations you can embark on and your discoveries will make your St Lucia vacation truly special…
