What to see when you travel to Saint Lucia

Located in the Eastern Caribbean sea, Saint Lucia is a unique island that features some of the best sights in the entire Caribbean region. There’s a lot to see when you travel to Saint Lucia with the Peregrine Travel Group, from the beaches to the mountains to the capital of Castries, and there’s also a ton of culture you won’t want to miss.
The most famous icons of Saint Lucia are the pitons, two volcanic plugs that still feature remnants of hot springs at their bases. The Gros Piton (771 meters high) and the Petit Piton (743 meters) offer a beautiful view over Jalosie Bay that stretches across the entirety of the 238 square miles of Saint Lucia.

There are several tour groups that offer hikes led by guides up and down the mountains.It’s recommended to use your hotel’s concierge or the Peregrine Travel Group associate to set up a trip with a good company in order to avoid more deceitful arrangements. A taxi ride could take an hour or two depending on your location, and you’ll be traveling along sharply winding roads.

If you get carsick, take something before you leave! And be warned that the climb of Petit Piton grows quite steep at the end. It’s not a hike for the faint of heart or anyone too out of shape.

If at all possible, visit during early May to catch the world famous Saint Lucian Jazz Festival. It’s the island’s largest festival and includes free music to be enjoyed by all with plenty of food and local art for sale. Locations all over the island are used to host the event, which has featured artists such as Herbie Hancock, Courtney Pine, and Santana. The festival has been designated one of the top five most spectacular in the world by E! entertainment.

Stop by the capital of Saint Lucia and enjoy some history. Castries is a vibrant city founded in the 1650s with an unusual mix of people who divide their everyday language between English and Creole. You flew in here by Cathay Pacific or your cruise ship docked here. Visit the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception or Fort Charlotte if you’re the type to enjoy beauty in history. The best way to get around the city is by taxi cab. For an extra tip to your driver, you could stumble upon beautiful (and cheap!) items in local shops.
