Taking it In… While Taking It Easy
- Looking for a relaxing, yet informative, feast for the senses – and a fine introduction to the island? Try the Half Day Green Giant Jeep Safari! Take in the sights from the comfort of a giant jeep while your guide narrates. Learn about (and see up close) St. Lucia’s lush, deep green foliage. You’ll tour through Laborie and Choiseul, nearby small fishing villages and along the west coast to Soufriere for a photo stop. Next, you’ll visit the Botanical Gardens and Diamond Falls, where the group stops for an hour. Take a dip and enjoy the water! Then it’s off to the only drive-in volcano on Earth, at Sulphur Springs mineral and mud baths. Returning to the resort, enjoy breathtaking views of the southern island from Moule a Chique peninsula.
- Excellent sightseeing is also on the menu with the Fascinating St. Lucia full-day tour. You’ll travel up the island’s East coast, through quaint coastal towns to the historic capital: Castries. Learn about “Our Planet” at St. Lucia’s aptly named new planetary facility, created in partnership with NASA. Then it’s time for a little refreshment – a three-course lunch at Caribbean Pirates, a restaurant with lovely views out over Castries Bay. Next, you’ll visit 100-year-old Vigie Lighthouse and get a historical and cultural experience at the Lushan Country Life Centre. As your tour returns to Coconut Bay, you’ll stop at the Pink Plantation House for shopping and a refreshing toast to your wonderful day.
