Chances are that some couples want it all in one honeymoon package: they want to lie on pristine sandy beaches under the greenery of palm trees, be surrounded by spectacular mountains and thick jungles waiting to be explored, lulled by the sound of ocean waves and be entertained by a variety of activities. If this is a challenge you are facing, it can be a real problem. Thankfully, there is a solution: the heavenly island of St. Lucia which is located in the Caribbean.
If you still have doubts that traveling to St. Lucia will satisfy the most demanding romantic couples, you should know that this location has been nominated and awarded “World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination” 8 times in the past ten years.
If you choose St. Lucia as your honeymoon travel destination, you will probably live in a hotel near Soufrière, the island’s drive-in volcano which is famous for its breathtaking views and healing mud baths.
St. Lucia is a perfect honeymoon travel destination also for those who are attracted to all kinds of watersports. Love snorkeling? The reefs seem to be created for it. Enjoy scuba diving? Why not search for some shipwrecks around? It is one of the best places to go windsurfing, sailing, para-sailing or water-skiing.
For nature-loving couples, St. Lucia offers an opportunity to wander through its rainforest. If you want to hike in it, you should sign up for walking tours accompanied by an experienced guide. During the tour you’ll even have a chance to see a rare crimson, yellow and green-hued Jacquot parrot which lives only on St. Lucia!
Don’t forget to visit the magic Diamond Waterfalls. They are said to be one of the most romantic places in St. Lucia, and a place for hugs and kisses. They are like small Niagara Falls – stately and romantic at the same time.
You shouldn’t miss the local market which is held each Saturday in Castries, the capital of St. Lucia. There you’ll be able to buy everything you want, from locally grown food to creative handicrafts. The souvenirs you’ll buy here will always serve you as a reminder of your unforgettable honeymoon vacation. And don’t forget the relatives! They will definitely want some souvenirs, too!
Considering the time of traveling to St. Lucia bear in mind that the rain season here lasts from June to November. If you want to combine best weather and best prices during your honeymoon vacation, consider visiting this destination from mid-April to late May or from November to mid-December.
