St. Lucia may be small in size, but it sure packs a punch. Home to rainforests, powdery beaches and tropical reefs, this verdant Caribbean island also boasts striking volcanic mountains and an abundance of enchanting waterfalls.
Want to be let in on a little secret? You’ll get more bang for your buck if you bundle your hotel and flight bookings with Expedia. With 1018 hotels and prices starting at CA $317, it’s never been easier to create your own affordable St. Lucia Vacation Package. And by adding extras like experiences and car rentals to your bundle, you can save even more. Not sure where to start? Add a guided tour of the dramatic twin peaks of Gros Piton to your package.
Day 1-2: You’ll likely arrive at Hewanorra International Airport, around an hour’s drive south of the capital city, Castries. Once settled, head to Castries Market where you can peruse fresh local produce and handicrafts. For a history lesson of St. Lucia’s alternating British and French rule, take a guided tour of Inniskilling Monument. The view here won’t disappoint.
Day 3-4: No St. Lucia trip is complete without experiencing the crystal clear, calm water at Jalousie Beach. With its white sand and view of the Pitons, it may well be the prettiest beach on the island. Reduit Beach on Rodney Bay is also worth a visit. Kick back with a fresh coconut in hand or feel like a kid again at Splash Island Water Park.
Day 5-7: Wind up your trip by hiking Gros Piton or Pigeon Island National Park. Last of all, don’t miss the opportunity to soak in the volcanic mud baths of Soufriere./p>
Immerse yourself in the culinary feasts and musical festivities of Jounen Kwéyòl (Creole Day), which is celebrated all over the island every last Sunday of October.
