Words from our customers
St. Lucia Is Paradise For Outdoor Activities
This eastern Caribbean island is home to volcanic beaches, quaint fishing villages, coral reefs, and two iconic volcanic mountains called the Pitons. The island's capital city, Castries, is an inviting cruise port. Interesting wildlife, historic sites, and colorful marine life attract cruise passengers on packaged shore excursions.
Dining on St Lucia is a Caribbean feast for food lovers. The national dish, saltfish, is made from salt-cured cod cooked with onions and peppers. It's generally served with unripened bananas, often called green figs. Fresh seafood is popular, including local spiny lobster, conch, crab, and the local fish of the day. Marigot boasts a number of fantastic waterfront restaurants where diners can enjoy a lovely meal with an incredible sunset view.
