Welcome to St. Lucia!
Located midway between French Martinique and British St. Vincent, St. Lucia offers some of the most exotic scenery in all of the Caribbean. Visitors can enjoy taking hikes and bird-watching tours throughout the 19,000 acres of plush rain forests. These forests are filled with giant ferns and other tropical flora, parrots and even hummingbirds.
St. Lucia’s most famous landmark is the 2,000 foot Pitons, twin half-mile-tall volcanic cones. Another volcanic site, Mt. Soufriere, has the world’s only drive-in volcanic crater. Not only will the natural beauty of the forests, mountains and the myriad of beaches make you feel as if you are part of a tropical paradise, but through the sounds of steel bands and reggae, the island people of St. Lucia will draw you into the culture of their spectacular island.
Climate: The weather in St Lucia ranges from 65 to 95F during the winter months and 75 to 95 during the summer.
Currency: U.S. currency is accepted, but the currency of the island is the Eastern Caribbean dollar.
Language: English is the official language, but owing to past French control of the island, some natives also speak with a French-Creole dialect.
