    There is a very small airport in Castries, but it is quite limited to certain airlines departure and arrivals. Hewanorra is the larger airport, however, it is considerably farer from the property you are staying at. Since the road system and transportation systems are quite a long ride (about 1 1/2 hours from there) you may want to hire the St. Lucia Helicopter Service for your transport. go to www.stlluciahelicopter.com it is somewhat pricey ($100 pp) but consider it also in the form of an excursion (as you will likely have an unparelled view from the copter) and the price is a bit easier to justify. They will pick you up at Hewanorra airport and land at the small airport in Castries and then provide a cab to your resort, which would be a much lesser time consuming ride. Hope that helps!

    I was told that the fare from George Charles airport (SLU) is20. The further airport (UVF) is about80. I agree that the helicopter may make sense, but then again, so may finding someone to share the cab with if you'd rather save some money. We're looking to go there later this year. If you call their 1-800 reservation number, they are very helpful in giving this info to you!
