Saint Lucia

The local inhabitants are renowned throughout the Caribbean for their warmth and hospitality, partly due to the Creole culture so dear to St. Lucians. You can still hear Creole spoken in some parts of the island. St. Lucia offers lodgings and South vacation packages for all purses, from luxury resorts to small country inns for low budget vacations. You can also find all-inclusive vacation packages. We invite you to check vacation packages available in Canada.

Health in St. Lucia

Pharmacies in St. Lucia are well-stocked and accept major credit cards. You can safely drink the water everywhere in St. Lucia. Beware of the manchineel or beach apple tree growing near beaches and scattered throughout the island : its venomous sap and fruits can cause serious skin burns. You will easily recognize it by its small round leaves centered by a yellow vein. If you touch this tree, see a doctor as soon as possible.
The asp of St. Lucia, also known as the fer de lance snake, is the only animal dangerous to humans. This brown-skinned snake lives in grassy areas, particularly on the island’s Southeast coast. There is always a remote chance to encounter one during your vacation, but to be on the safe side, avoid putting your hands in holes and cracks and stay on the marked paths when crossing wild grasses. Still, this snakes rarely bites, but if he does, it is extremely dangerous and requires immediate medical intervention.

You can cross the island in half a day by car and most attractions are easily accessible, wherever you decide to lodge for your south vacation package. All terrain vehicles excursions will help you discover most parts of St. Lucia.
To make your activities’ choice easier, we divided the island in 5 regions : Rodney bay, Castries, Soufrière, Vieux Fort and the Atlantic coast.

Rodney Bay and the northern part of the island**

This region is very accessible and full of contrasts : you will find large tourists’ resorts that offer South vacation package as well as all the splendors of the island’s nature. Several vast beaches and small isolated coves make Rodney Bay the tourists’ center of St. Lucia : most vacationers come here to enjoy the beach and the sea or just to relax and have cocktails, a good dinner and take in a show.

Pigeon Island National Landmark*** is an old fortress part of St. Lucia’s long military history. From the highest point, a breathtaking view of St. Lucia is your reward for the climb up.
Cap Estate** : Once the location of the island’s plantations, this area is nowadays home to large private villas, south and all-inclusive vacation packages hotels and a 18 hole golf course.
Great House* : Home to Monsieur de Longueville, the French commandant in the middle of the 18th century, a fine cuisine restaurant now welcomes you.
Pointe du Cap*** : It is a long and hard way up, but a little physical exercise during your vacation is always healthy. You will discover the wealthiest part of St. Lucia and its large modern villas as well as a wonderful view of the northern end of the island, and on clear days, a glimpse of the south coast of Martinique.
Union Nature Trail and Mini Zoo** : Discover St. Lucia’s fauna and flora through this park. A mini zoo allows you to see the agouti ( a cat-sized rodent with long legs and small tail), the iguana and the St. Lucia’s parrot.

Around Castries*

For your vacation, take a one hour submarine cruise to explore the coral reef and ships’ wreckages under the sea without getting wet or stay on the water and observe dolphins and whales.

Castries* is a small city easily visited on foot.
1. Central Market*** :The original metallic structure dates back to 1894 but you will find the real action outside, where you can see locals buy there fruits, vegetables, meat and fresh fish or just listen to them talk amongst friends.
2. Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception** : The size and location of this sumptuous stone building reveals the Catholic Church importance in St. Lucia.
3. Derek Walcott Square* : A 400 years old rain tree casts its shade upon the square, which is always appreciated in the South’s sun.

The Folk Research Centre* is fitted in a refurbished colonial manor perch upon a hill which reveals itself at the end of a long shaded lane. From the terrace, a magnificent view awaits you once again, this time of Castries. This manor was built at the beginning of the 19th century by a Scottish immigrant wishing to shelter his family from the frequent malaria epidemics in the Castries’ region. The stately stone building oddly mixes Georgian and Caribbean architectures.
Vigie’s peninsula** : You will discover 2 colonial military barracks complexes and a most pleasant walk awaits you on the lane that crosses the old historic quarter.
Vigie’s Lighthouse** : Built in 1914, it offers splendid looking views of Castries, its port and the blue Caribbean sea. The whole package!

A trip in time awaits you when walk through the barracks and other military offices of this past era. The building are now part of the Sir Arthur Lewis community College but they are still open to the public.
The picturesque Government House*, built in 1885, is unfortunately closed to the public but the magnificent view of the city is worth the trip.

Soufrière and the west coast***

This region offers one of the Caribbean most striking panorama. The Soufrière Marine Management reserve (stretching from Anse Jambon, North to Anse L’Ivrogne, south) offers whale observation cruises and much more to vacationers. This picturesque town, Southwest’s biggest, saw its northern area destroyed by a large fire in 1955, but luckily, most of the older historic buildings were spared. In Soufrière, you will see the older and newer styles of architecture depending on where you are standing. Also do not miss the Soufrière market on Saturday morning!

Diamond Botanical Gardens, Mineral Baths and Waterfall** : The choice is yours : Public baths, private baths, hiking trails, gardens or waterfall, this place has everything you desire. In 1784, a water analysis done by the French king’s physicians revealed that these waters had the same mineral contents as some of Europe’s more famed medicinal hot springs. After that discovery, bathhouses were laid out for the French troops posted in St. Lucia. Nowadays, vacationers can swim in a small gorge surrounded by lavished tropical plants and flowers.
New Jerusalem Warm Waterfall* : From the road, follow a path leading down to a footbridge over a river, then climbing up a small hill to the gardens and the waterfall (which is, in fact, a trickle).

St. Lucia’s famed Sulphur Springs and Volcano* were named Qualibou, «the death place», by the pre-Columbian natives, qualified of a sulphur pit, « Soufrière » by the French colonists and designated a « caldera » by geologists. Whoever’s right, this 50,000 years old geological formation is not a real pothole but, in fact, the remains of a sunken volcano which, at one point, spat out enough lava to create a large part of the island. The volcanic vapors you can see seep through chimneys or cracks on top of the sunken crater.
Fond Doux Estate** : One of the oldest estates, it dates to the first wave of French colonization at the beginning of the 18th century. When the price of sugar faltered at the end of the 19th century, the plantation converted to a cacao and coffee beans harvest. To this day, Fond Doux exports the major part of its harvest to Hershey Co. in the U.S.A..
