14461_178_zSt. Lucia is part of the British Commonwealth with English as its official language so it’s one of the more popular islands for Brits and Americans alike. It’s a very popular stop on Caribbean cruises, but it also has an impressive infrastructure for those wishing to stay any number of nights and there are plenty of good things to do in St. Lucia.

The island is a bit remote from the United States, but hotel and resort prices in St. Lucia are very reasonably priced, making this among the best-value islands in the Caribbean. St. Lucia is perhaps the most beautiful Caribbean island. Most resorts are along the western coast in the north, while the stunning Piton peaks in the far south of the island can make you feel like you are in Hawaii.

Where to stay

There are over 70 hotels on St. Lucia, with excellent value in the 3-star and 4-star ranges.

weather advise for AmsterdamWeather advice

Like the other Caribbean islands, St. Lucia is no stranger to sunshine and gets a good amount of sun almost every day, making for the perfect year round destination.

The temperatures tend to stay in line with the other islands around with lows in the 70s and highs in the 80s. June through November brings the rain, though not a lot but it is hurricane season. Due to this, it’s best to make sure you plan ahead.

None the less, St. Lucia is a great place to put on your bathing suit and hit the beach or better yet, take a dip or two in the ocean.
