We did a lot of activities already listed in the guide, so in an effort to save time I’ll just list some tips that you may find helpful
Driving: driving around the island is fun, challenging and essential if you want to be on your own schedule to visit the attractions. If you’ve just arrived and didn’t rent a car, we recommend getting one at least for a couple of days. Text Janus to help organize. Keep in mind that many activities, like waterfalls and hikes have pretty cheap entrance fees. You can actually save money by avoiding organized tour costs.
Honking here isn’t rude. Its your way of communicating with other drivers. Honk when going around blind corners to let other know you are coming and put your flashers on if you want the person behind you to pass. You will get passed-local drivers fast on curvy roads
We love St. Lucia!!! It is beautiful here and we’ll be back someday.
Olivia & Tom
Janus is the best host ever and St. Lucia is absolutely amazing!
Sugar Beach – white sand, blue water, perfect spot to relax bring you towels and a cooler and relax on the beach. There is guest parking up the hill and they shuttle you down for free.
Marigot Bay – About a 45 minute drive north but so beautiful the views during he drive make it worth it alone. Take a boat taxi to the beach and there are restaurants, party boats, rope swings.
Zakas Coffee shop – Zaka and his family are amazing and so hospitable. The coffee and smoothies are soo good and we met some great people.
Petit Piton – This hike was intense but so worth it! You can get a guide at the bottom near the entrance of sugar beach and they are so nice and informative. There are rope and some challenging inclines. So not for the faint of hear but I would recommend trying.
Soufriere is the most beautiful spot on the island and the people are very nice and helpful.
Sunshine nail and spa – gives great massages and ladies are all great. Perfect after a couple of long days in the sun or after a hike.
Just be open to suggestions and have fun and you can’t do St. Lucia wrong.
Thank you Janus!!!
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.
