Why You Should Visit St. Lucia
The small island of St. Lucia was fought over for years by the French and the British, earning this beautiful country the nickname the Helen of the West Indies. It's easy to see why this nation was so desired. With pristine waters for snorkeling and diving, volcanic rainforests for hiking and exploring, and beautiful beaches for relaxing, St. Lucia truly has it all.
When to Visit St. Lucia
The best time to visit St. Lucia is April through June, when the weather is mild and crowds are minimal. You can find great hotel deals during this time. December through April is a good time to visit weather-wise, but room rates and flight tickets will likely be expensive. For a festive trip, visit St. Lucia in June or July during the St. Lucia Carnival.
Average St. Lucia Weather
St. Lucia is warm year-round, although temperatures are best in December through June. (The heat and humidity can be high in the summer months.) June through November is hurricane season and is also when you can expect the most rain. Fortunately, rainstorms generally come on suddenly but don't last very long.
