Looking for a one-stop shop of fun and relaxation in the Caribbean? St. Lucia is the option for you! With marvelous resorts for relaxation, tons of adventure and ziplines, and plenty of family attractions, St. Lucia has everything you can imagine.
Tasting Local Food
If relaxation is what brings you on vacation, kick your feet up and enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful island. There are several resorts that have everything you could want; whether it be tasting local food, which is a mix of French, British, and East Indian dishes, or looking for things to do like archery or yoga. Outside of the spa, there are plenty opportunities for relaxation. The island of St. Lucia has many exquisite, botanical gardens. The most notable, however, is the Soufriere Estate. Since the early 1700s, the estate has homed acres of tropical rainforests featuring hibiscus blooms, orchids, green ferns, bamboo, and jasmine for natives and travelers to visit. Soufriere Hills on the southwestern end of the island offers a colonial-age relaxation session in the Mud Baths of St. Lucia. On top of being fun, the baths are known to relieve skin disease, de-stress, and heal tension.
If you are looking for something a little more adventurous, Sulphur Springs, also in the Soufriere hills, might just be the place for you. As the world’s only drive-in volcano, the Springs offer a new kind of excitement. Visitors are welcome to walk close up for a peek at the collapsed crater where the magma and heat collide. The bubbling springs produce plumes of ash and smoke at a temperature of 392 degrees Fahrenheit. Maybe smokey, boiling pools aren’t your thing. Then head on down to TreeTop Adventure Park where new experiences await! Instead of climbing on a carnival ride, you can try hopping on a bike and taking a guided cycling excursion through the rainforest. Or you can try a series of ziplining for something still adventurous but less physical.
Splash Island Water Park
Travelers looking for family fun should start with the Splash Island Water Park. The whole park can be found in the ocean made up of inflatable walk-ways, rafts, obstacles, and bouncy castles. It features plenty of kid favorites: monkey bars, climbing wall, trampolines, and out-at-sea volleyball courts. There are also plenty of family fun hiking trails along the island that offer an inside look at the wildlife and nature of St. Lucia. One thing you shouldn’t miss?! Each week, the locals have weekend food festivals where you can find food, beer, and dancing.
When it comes to vacation, nowhere does it quite like St. Lucia. Between the friendly locals and the beautiful views, the island makes all visitors feel welcomed and encouraged to stay.
