Colleen & Jon- honeymoon
Day 1: we landed at UVF and arranged a pick-up through Janus. Our driver was Super Easy to find and he was friendly. The ride to Our Airbnb was a little scary but worth it once we got there! Janus greeted us immediately and provided us with some eggs, juice and crackers since it was Sunday and all the grocery stores are closed on Sundays.
We were hungry so decided to walk to Pitit Peak for food. We loved our bacon wrapped plantains! We also ordered a BLT and chicken wrap that were okay. We were just happy to be eating with views of the Caribbean.
The locals were very friendly and helpful WITH DIRECTIONS. On the walk back to Our Airbnb it started pouring. We stopped at cool Breeze to buy some Piton for the night and headed back to relax for the rest of the night!
Day 2: woke up to rain! One of Janus drivers took us to get groceries and then we walked to The Botanical Gardens- the waterfall was beautiful and well worth the $7 to get in. We were hoping to go to Jade Mountain for Lunch or sit at the bar but they were booked so we went to’ trou ou diable’ and split the tropical island burger and it was delicious!
We walked to Tree House Restaurant next door and enjoyed a drink with a great view! We then had our driver take us to Hummingbird beach resort where we split the St. Jacques Shrimp and a pasta dish- both good! We walked back to the Villa after and enjoyed a bottle of wine under the stars!
Day 3:Janus gave us tours of his other properties in the morning- they’re all amazing. We hiked Tet Paul Trail- highly recommend. Easy trail and great views/photo opps. We then went back to Serrana and get ready and another driver took us to Dasheene at Ladera for lunch.
We had our best drink of the night called (screaming orgasm) My husband loved his burger and my seafood pasta was pretty good. The views was unbeatable! We then walked across for a drink at Boucan by Hotel Chocolat.
It was good (especially if you love chocolate) we then got a ride back to Serrana by Janus and enjoyed the pool until chef Ramsey arrived. He cooked us pork with Pineapple and bananas and it was the best meal we’ve had thus far in St. Lucia.
Tip – when sitting outside at night do not have ‘’pool light’’ on, on the porch, gets so buggy, we had to get in early because they were covering our clothes.
Day 4: time to leave ☹ We enjoyed breakfast here while taking in the view and did some laundry. One of Janus’ drivers will be taking us to our next destination in Castries.
Overall: Thank you Janus. You’ve been a responsive helpful host and we hope to be back some day

WEATHER IN SAINT LUCIA
While most places in the world have four well-defined seasons, its proximity to the equator means that this is not really the case for the island of St. Lucia.
