Why Go: There’s a reason people from all over the world head to this beautiful isle in the eastern Caribbean. St. Lucia offers beaches, rainforests, waterfalls, gardens, and plenty of opportunity for active adventuring. The culture, too, is particularly complex, influenced as it is by its African, French, English, and Indian heritage.
What to Do: Head to Soufriere, to Sulphur Springs Park, to see St. Lucia’s active drive-in volcano located on 45 hectares. Then take mud bath in a nearby black water mineral pool. Alternatively, take a rainforest tour, go zip-lining, explore waterfalls, go hiking along the Gros Piton Nature Trail, or go diving. However you spend your days, make sure you end your vacation with fresh spices bought at the famous Castries Market, where they’re sold in coconut shells
Where to stay: St. James’s Club Morgan Bay, an all-inclusive family resort in Choc Bay, boasts four pools, including a kids pool with slide, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and a sandy beach. Oh, and there is no extra charge to play with the friendly cats that call St. James Club home.
