Wanderlust Wednesday: St. Lucia Edition
St. Lucia: The Hawaii of the Caribbean!
I'm obsessed with this beautiful island. It has so much to offer, with unique excursions and culture. Plus, you can be on the island in just over 6 hours from Boston! Half the time to get to Hawaii!
Whats so special about St. Lucia?
The only Drive in Volcano is located here!
Visit Sulphur Springs, a natural phenomenon where you can soak in natural springs and mud and peer into the murky depths. It is the hottest and most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles
The Piton Waterfalls
Unrelated to the famous Pitons, this waterfall is a quick hike from Sulphur Springs and features 30 feet of warm water! Be sure to wear sturdy shoes on your hike as it does get a bit slippery.
The Famous Pitons
Two Volcanic Plus available to hike, or simply gaze upon. The Higher of the two reaches 2619 ft while the Petit Piton is at 2461 ft. Despite being the higher of the two, the Gros Piton is actually easier to hike, since the Petit Piton is much steeper. A guide is required to accompany you.
Of course, nothing beats lounging by the beach or pool. St. Lucia's vast array of resorts makes it the perfect destination for couples, families, honeymooners, and friends.
