The ever green Santa Lucia, whose capital is Castries is one of the most fashionable
and attractive holiday destionations in the Caribbeans where bananas still prove
the greatest business, but tourism is at doors, though!
In an area which extends for over 620 km2 live nearly 160,000 people whose official language is english.
St Lucia is in the middle of the Eastern Caribbean chain of islands south of Martinique and northwest of Barbados with an always pleasant climate.
The widely practiced religion is Roman Catholic, but some of the inhabitants share Protestant and Anglican ideals, though!
Castries is the lively trading business heart whose port is on a natural bay! Following to fire the city was badly damaged for three times between 1785 and 1948, meaning that there is little remains of the historical downtown! Derek Walcott Square is the only witness of its past!
A fast sailing boat serves Castries and Fort de France in Martinique.
Santa Lucia is served by the International Airport of Hewanorra and Vigie in Castries, not far the main tourist area!
Though small it may be dfficult to get around in the area as Santa Lucia is hilly: as a matter of fact locals use the frequent bus service to go to work, school or simply have a walk in town!
Hop in a taxi is good to get through the area and enjoy special views of it, but better is to agree the fare with the driver, first!
