    • Traveling from Internatioal Airport to Gros Islet

      Saint Lucia Mar 26, 2014 at 5:15 PM

      Myself and a companion are trying to find the cheapest way from the International Airport to Gros Islet on a Tuesday afternoon. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have looked into buses and taxis; however, I can't seem to find a actual bus company online or there routes, times, etc. Taxis seem to be really expensive especially because it is an almost two hour drive.
      So any information you have would be great!

      Thanks

      To fly to or cruise to Saint Lucia

      Saint Lucia Jan 22, 2014 at 11:27 AM

      For many years it has been a dream to visit St. Lucia. I love the idea of staying on a hillside resort there, but also have never cruised before. Have been trying to compare costs with both, still unsure. I'm afraid if I cruise there and only have a day to spend there for excursions, I may be sorry I just didn't fly there. Can anybody offer any insight one way or the another on this? Thanks!

    • Someone wants to joint for Deep Sea Fishing?

      Saint Lucia Oct 21, 2013 at 2:05 AM

      Me and my girlfriend are going to be in St. Lucia and st. Vincent /Grenadines from 11 nov- 23 nov and we really want to go Deep sea fishing. However we don't want to get a private charter as it is very expensive and there is no point in being alone. It is more interesting to relate with others who share the same hobby and likewise are enjoying a holiday in the Caribbean. So is there someone out there who wants to experience this tour with us?
      Can you suggest how we can find others who want to join/organise this activity? Help is much appreciated ! thanks

      Are there local restaurants, etc?

      Saint Lucia Feb 21, 2012 at 1:58 PM

      I have been to St. Lucia twice, the last time in 2009. We do love the stunning natural beauty of the island and the friendliness of the people and explored quite a bit by our own. Both times we stayed in Rodney Bay area, however the last time I noticed that the previously thriving area, touristy, but full of local bars, restaurants and shops had quietened down considerably. A lot of places were closed down and overall it seemed all business had moved to the all-inclusive resorts...I don't think this was season related as we visited in Feb.
      What is the situation now - is it purely resorts now?
      Thanks!

      Also, Is it better to stay in a resort in Soufierres or Castries? Furthermore, a Sandals resort (which may be sold out, except the penthouse suite) OR a unique, maybe boutique hotel? If so, which one is recommended?

      Day trip to Martinique

      Saint Lucia Nov 9, 2010 at 10:03 AM

      We're going to St. Lucia end of Jan/.beginning of Feb. and are very interested in taking one of the day trips to Martinique. This is what I have found online so far:

      Sun Link Tours -220/person. Tuesdays and Fridays.

      Serenity Tours - info not on site. Called the 1-800 number,220/person. Fridays.

      Sun Tours Carribean -230/ea. Thursdays.

      Solar Tours and Travel -230/ea. Thursdays.

      Spice Travel and Tours -235/ea. Wednesdays.

      St. Lucia Wave Riders - No date or price on website.

      To me, based on the descriptions on the different websites, they all seem like the (almost exact)same tour (itinerary), just on different dates, with a slightly different price, through different tour operators.

      Has anyone had any experience with any of these tour operators? Any I should consider over the others? Does one have better/worse guides than the other? Or should I just book based on cost/day of week?

      Any info appreciated. Thanks!

      Trying to decide between The Village Inn and Bay Gardens Inn

      Saint Lucia Oct 17, 2010 at 8:31 PM

      My husband and I are planning on going at the end of January. We're in our mid-20s, love the beach, swimming, etc. We are planning on doing a couple of day excursions so we won't always be around the hotel. These options seem pretty similar to us, but the difference in price through the company we are booking with is about300 total. I realize nothing in Rodney Bay is really 'far' from anything else, but is one better than the other in terms of beach during the day and walking around/shopping/restaurants in the evening?

      We are leaning towards one but I'd like to see some other opinions.

      I appreciate all opinions, however we've done some research and we're only going to choose between these two based on what we've seen and what is available to us.

      Thanks :)
