Rich in cultural history and natural beauty, the island nation of St Lucia offers a touch of everything you want in a Caribbean vacation. An unspoiled, tropical gem nestled in a chain of islands known as the Lesser Antilles, St Lucia traces its colorful history to long before colonial times, yet it has a legacy of over 400 years of European influence. While the country's economy is mainly agricultural, its natural attributes have made tourism the fastest growing industry. Dramatic coastlines are enhanced by coral reefs and isolated beaches of both white and black sand. The awe-inspiring twin Pitons soar 2,000 feet up from the southwest shore, sheltering a lush interior rainforest with a profusion of giant ferns, wild orchids, and the beautiful plumage of rare tropical birds.
At once exotic and intoxicating, the island's natural wonders are matched by the cultural magnetism of quaint fishing villages, flavorful Caribbean cuisine, and exciting traditional events. The capital of Castries on the island's northwestern tip is a hot spot of tourist activity, with Victorian buildings, open-air markets, and an entertaining nightlife. There are excellent facilities for most leisure and sporting interests, including yachting, tennis, and golf. Explorers find banana and cocoa plantations, St Lucia's famed La Soufrière volcano, aged fortresses, and warm, friendly natives proud of their rich heritage
There are wonderful places to experience and many have very good specials available now.
