St. Lucia is the only island in the Caribbean named after a woman, and locals refer to it as “she,” the same way a captain refers to a boat. Spend a week on St. Lucia with Classic Journeys and you’ll be on a first name basis with the island too. Most islands in the Caribbean offer either beautiful beaches or mountainous peaks. St. Lucia doesn’t compromise and so offers you both, with beautiful beaches, waterfalls that cascade down the sides of volcanoes, the incomparably scenic “piton” mountains, and a southerly location that means it has just about perrennial sunshine and generally escapes hurricane season. On top of all that, ’she’ is so close yet you'll feel worlds away. On this Classic Journeys adventure, every day you'll choose your own adventure from seemingly countless choices. Want to drive up to a volcano, take a dip in the mud bath and wash off under a rainforest waterfall? Its included! How about horseback riding on the beach? You got it! Creole cooking class? Yes, even that, too. Customize your trip as you like, knowing that each day your Classic Journeys guide is showing you the best the Caribbean has to offer.
DAYS 1 and 2
‘Choose your adventure’ becomes the theme for the week from the start as you decide what sort of liquid you want to try first: kayaking from your resort around Marigot Bay visiting a rum distillery for a guided tour and tasting. Next day, choose between two activities that are uniquely St. Lucian. Enjoy a gentle horseback ride as you explore St. Lucia's beautiful landscape, including riding along a sandy beach, or marvel at the scenic views on a drive to a volcano where you’ll take a dip in the mud bath and wash off under a refreshing waterfall.
DAYS 3 and 4
Board a catamaran to sail the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. You’ll spend your day sailing from secluded coves to coral reefs – with all the time in the world for a swim or snorkel. Laze in the sun or under a canopy as you sip Piton (St. Lucia’s home brewed beer) and enjoy lunch onboard. After a day of activity, the next day can be as slow as a leisurely rejuvinative massage or zip lining through the lush tropical forest canopy.
DAYS 5 and 6
Enjoy the morning at leisure. Relax by the pool, get in some last minute shopping, or explore the island – you'll have time to do it all today before your final night farewell dinner. Raise your glass one last time to toast your week and lasting memories of St. Lucia – the Caribbean’s best island. On your final day, you’ll make your way to the airport for an afternoon flight to the US.
Home to Saint Lucia's most desirable marina, Marigot Bay is the perfect setting for your luxurious week in the Caribbean. With two infinity pools, a swim-up bar, and a Rum Cave, you are sure to slow down, relax and enjoy the Caribbean calypso vibe.
