Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · September 14, 2016
What part ot the island is best to have as a base?

Dear st lucia experts.

We are a family of four from Sweden (kids 5&7) who are coming to Saint lucia end of december on a farly tight budget. We are mostly coming to simply relax and enjoy the country and the caribbean atmosphere, but with kids there needs to be some activities apart from sun and beach. We are trying to figure out which part of Saint Lucia that would be best for us to find accomondation and are therefore wondering if any of you kind experts could help us in deciding on which part to focus on?

and of course if there are anytning else that you think would be good for us as to know about - we would be most thankful for any insigts that would make our trip and visit even more joyfull

allt the best

Marcus with family

SANDALS REGENCY LA TOC  (3 Answers)

Hello everyone.

Any thoughts on the SANDALS REGENCY LA TOC? I was thinking of taking my wife there for our 10 year anniversary but after reading all the blogs about crime, bums on the beach etc, I am wondering about the SANDALS REGENCY LA TOC beach. Does the resort try to keep "bums" away? Will we be hassled many times per day by locals selling goods? Crime at the hotel? Butlers... are they any good? Do they really cater to your needs?

Any specific warnings regarding this resort?

What is this resorts average clientele? Age range, average age?

Would you take the resorts "airport transportation" from the airport to the hotel? If not, suggestion please.

"Smoke"... if we don't want to go off resort, who at the resort will be best suited to procure smoke for us?

We are a Caucasian couple from the United States.

Any additional information is appreciated.

Thank you.

grilled fish on the beach?  (1 Answer)

Some time ago, a segment on St Lucia aired on the TV show Caribbean Life. It featured a retired military couple from Canada with two dogs moving to St Lucia. Of three homes, they chose the Reduit House. At the end of the show, it had them eating grilled fish on a beach. It was an open grill right on the beach. Does anyone know where this was? Possibilities would be Reduit or Rodney Bay, but also maybe the Friday Jump Up in Dennery? We would love to go there if we can find out where they were on the show.

snorkeling in St Lucia  (1 Answer)

I will be coming to St Lucia on a cruise in a few weeks. The three adults that I will be with do not want to snorkel so I would like to find a nice quiet beach with chairs and umbrella to rent and good snorkeling right from the beach. I do not want to take a boat excursion without them. Can you suggest the best place for us? How long a cab ride would that be? What would be approximate costs for the cab, beach access and rentals? If necessary I'll bring my own snorkeling equipment.

Tour Companies On St. Lucia  (10 Answers)

I am looking for a tour company that visits the same places, as Cosol, but skips the banana plantation, waterfall, and botanical gardens. I have no interest in visiting those.
I would rather visit the cacao plantation instead, or just have more time in the other places. Just something I can use during a cruise stop. Don't suggest Herod. And I would also like a tour, that departs 15 or 30 minutes after the ship arrives, because I found one that doesn't depart for an hour, and since there is nothing to see around the cruise terminal, I don't want to wait that long, and waste valuable time.
Has anyone traveled with this Cosol Tour company, who can give me a detailed schedule of the entire tour?

Traveling from Internatioal Airport to Gros Islet  (1 Answer)

Myself and a companion are trying to find the cheapest way from the International Airport to Gros Islet on a Tuesday afternoon. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have looked into buses and taxis; however, I can't seem to find a actual bus company online or there routes, times, etc. Taxis seem to be really expensive especially because it is an almost two hour drive.
So any information you have would be great!

Thanks

To fly to or cruise to Saint Lucia  (6 Answers)

For many years it has been a dream to visit St. Lucia. I love the idea of staying on a hillside resort there, but also have never cruised before. Have been trying to compare costs with both, still unsure. I'm afraid if I cruise there and only have a day to spend there for excursions, I may be sorry I just didn't fly there. Can anybody offer any insight one way or the another on this? Thanks!

Someone wants to joint for Deep Sea Fishing?  (2 Answers)

Me and my girlfriend are going to be in St. Lucia and st. Vincent /Grenadines from 11 nov- 23 nov and we really want to go Deep sea fishing. However we don't want to get a private charter as it is very expensive and there is no point in being alone. It is more interesting to relate with others who share the same hobby and likewise are enjoying a holiday in the Caribbean. So is there someone out there who wants to experience this tour with us?
Can you suggest how we can find others who want to join/organise this activity? Help is much appreciated ! thanks

Hi, Has anyone stayed at this place? I contacted them (via their website) & am still awaiting an answer.

And how far is the location for the rainforest zip-lining please?

Thank you in advance
