The Ultimate St. Lucia Travel Guide

Recently a former co-worker of mine disclosed that she and her partner wanted to visit my birth country, St Lucia. I was beyond excited to offer suggestions on what sites they should explore.

I was born and raised in St Lucia. My family and I transplanted to NYC years ago and last January I got the opportunity to return to the island, a mere four hours away. We spent a week at our family home in the countryside. I forgot what it was like to look up at the stars at night or to hear the midday chirps of a yellow breast or the pitter-patter of early morning showers on the banana trees outside my window.

About the Island

The island life is the ultimate seduction. It’s hard not to fall in love with the sites, food, and the people. You won’t ever experience anything quite as breathtaking and vibrant as St Lucia’s natural beauty.

Over the years, St Lucia has become a major tourist attraction known for its thriving cuisine, luxury resorts, and stunning sceneries. It’s one of the few islands in the world with a drive-in volcano. Further, you haven’t done your visitation justice if you don’t stride through a couple of towns to indulge in the island’s cuisine. Its national dish is green figs and salt fish but my all time favorite dish is curried veggies wrapped in roti.
