Some tourist travel tips for Saint Lucia

The realistic Caribbean island with its rich heritage.

When to go? The annual Atlantic Cruise Rally takes place in mid-December: the world’s largest voyage, ending in Rodney Bay, more than 4,000 kilometers from its starting point, the Canary Islands in Spain. St. Lucia also celebrates its national holiday on December 13.

Why now? The island of St. Lucia is famous for its natural beauty – the most notable are the green Python Mountains, which rise from the Caribbean Sea like two canine teeth. But now, the island’s rich cultural traditions are in the spotlight. In 2019, visitors can get to know the local life through several tours. The first one started thanks to “Bon Nouvel Experience” from Heritage Tours in St. Lucia. The tour will take travelers to Esperance, one of the last working farm properties in Choiseul on the southwest coast. Guests can help harvest cocoa or simply watch the long process of extracting coconut oil from dill or dried coconut. A 90-minute drive north, a tour of Lushan Country Life Nature Park offers you a glimpse of how people lived centuries ago – full of folk beliefs and flavors of fish cakes and cocoa teas. Not far from Lushan, artisans at an organic chocolate factory at Howelton Estate 1886 are teaching beginners how to make their own chocolates. At the end of 2019, the villages of Gros Islet, Soufrière and Anse La Raye will offer tourists the opportunity to follow the making of rum, as well as to enjoy the art of the island. You will also be able to visit many restored houses.
