December 29th- January 3rd- Serrana Villa
Day 1: Dec. 29th
Arriver, went to the grocery Store for food, drinks and snacks. Decided to go to Pier 28 (local restaurant) for drinks. They have good fries and excellent jerk wings, we also grabbed their spicy wings too, but preferred the jerk, hands down.
Pier-28 – 8/10 – jerk wings – yummy
Day 2:Dec. 30th ‘’2020 almost over’’
Started the morning going to ATM Machine in town then to Zakas for a local cup of coffee $8ec. They grow and grind their own coffee, very good.
Wanted to visit the beach, was told only options because of Covid was Hummingbird and Magretoute beach. We chose magretoute, it was decent not great. Beach chairs and umbrellas $10isd each plus food. Spent 4 hours there. Bill $56USD plus tip.
For dinner we visited Orlando’s restaurant In town for his tatsing menu. Authentic Caribbean Cuisine was amazing. Orlando is a genuine poison who provides excellent service.

Day 3: Dec. 31st 2020 (last day of 2020 😊)
Covid restrictions at Better beaches ☹ Being told the better beached were not an option for us :Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet. We decided to leave Soufriere for the day to visit Rodney Bay in the north. We thought since it is New Years Eve there would be more to do.
Trip to Rodney Bay takes 1 hour 30 minutes with no traffic. Costs $70usd or $190ecd
Rodney Bay : Found out about Kendele (taxi) from the host. Kendele has a nice car. There is a duty free liquor store at the mall across from KFC near Dominos pizza. The owner/ Manger is a jerk but the liquor is 50% cheaper than the wine store across the street.
For dinner we booked a restaurant at Big Chef Steak House in Rodney Bay near shopping mall. Restaurant was very nice. Recommend reservations. Steaks service was excellent. Wine list is lacking for having such fine cuts of meat.
Kendele (Rodney Bay Taxi) - +1 758 584 8744- 10/10
Duty free liquor store prices 10/10- service 1/10
Big Chef Steak House – 9/10- need better wines to accompany steaks
END OF 2020
Day 4: January 1st 2021
Rodney Bay St. Lucia
Decided to go to Reduit Beach while in Rodney Bay. Nice beach, chairs and umbrellas only $10ec each. Must bring towels!! Restaurants near by, not a plush beach, very chill and relaxing. Waves kinda aggressive. And another option is Pigeon Island Beach , stopped by there also, very nice, more restaurant options.
My friends suggested Dukes place in Rodney Bay for local fish and lobster. Only open on Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 10:30pm because of Covid.
That night we stayed near a local pizzeria. SO we decided to stop by the Italian restaurant. The owner is amazing, very knowledgeable and he had many recommendations, many places to go and things to do.

Day 5: January 2nd 2021
Rodney Bay to Soufriere.
While in Soufriere we met another couple, so we decided to split a fishing carter. We asked our driver Kendele to bring us back to Soufriere. Kendele charged US$70.00 plus tip. We stopped on our way down at the look out point and sites. Trip took 2 hours because of the 3-4 stops which was totally worth it.
Rented a fishing charter from David & Marcus. Unfortunately we do not have more details as the other couple booked while at the docks in Soufriere. We did see Mystic Man Boat.
Confirmed with my wife, David works for Mystic Man tours so you can reach out to him there.
The fishing is Amazing! David knows exactly what to do to help you and catch fish. We caught 2 barracudas 1 3lbs and the other 40 lbs, we caught the fish within the first hour. So we went further offshore where they caught a bisser fish ei. blue malin.
The fishing hour is great! Because you are able to see the shoreline, beaches and Pitons from the boat. So peaceful and beautiful. While my friend and I fish, our wives drank rum and beer and enjoyed the views. Sometimes for everyone.
The fish was take to stonefield hotelwhere our friends were staying and their chef agreed to clean and prepare them. We had dinner at Mango Tree. They didn’t charge for the fish so we paid for drinks and sides total bill $100ec.
Kendele’s taxi ride from Rodney bay to Soufriere- 10/10
Fishing Charter coast if St. Lucia -100/10
Once in a lifetime
