What should I expect from St. Lucia?

If you want to see snow or the desert, St. Lucia isn’t it, but otherwise, it’s a pretty compatible place for everyone. But, you should except to spend a lot of time of the beach.

If you’ve ever been to Hawaii, St. Lucia will be pretty similar to that.

Expect to have a great time- because if sure you will, and don’t be scared to try something new (like ziplining), because St. Lucia is all about that!
