 Islands Information

St. Lucia:

Soufriere is nestled next to one of the pitons and actually is in what was once the caldera of the volcano before it exploded about 100,000 years ago. It is a fishing village with absolutely gobs of Caribbean character. The center of town takes you back in time. Not a shopping heaven but a very real part of the Caribbean which has mostly disappeared on other islands.

Joan Devaux has done a fabulous job with the botanical gardens. All in one place you can look at the botanical elegance of the tropics. It is just outside of Soufriere.

For people staying in the northern part of the island (where there are more hotels) a day well spent is to take one of the different kind of sailing trips down the island. They stop at Soufriere for lunch and generally include a tour of the volcano and the botanical gardens. An alternative is to work out a day tour with one of taxi drivers at the hotels for a private day tour in his van. Just the two of you. Their vehicles are expensive so plan to pay $150-$200 USD for the day. These are great guys who are good drivers, very knowledgeable and worth the money. We do not recommend the cheaper van tours where they will cram 16-20 of you in one van.....read more about St. Lucia
