  • 1. St. Lucia History  St. Lucia is a sovereign island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean.[4] Part of the Lesser Antilles, it is located north/northeast of the island of Saint Vincent, northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique. It covers a land area of 617 km2 (238.23 sq mi) and has a population of 174,000 (2010). Its capital is Castries.  One of the Windward Islands, Saint Lucia was named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse by the French, the island's first European settlers.. They signed a treaty with the native Carib Indians in 1660. Britain took control of the island from 1663 to 1667; in ensuing years, it was at war with France 14 times and rule of the island changed frequently (it was seven times each ruled by the French and British). In 1814, the British took definitive control of the island. Because it switched so often between British and French control, Saint Lucia was also known as the "Helen of the West Indies".  Representative government came about in 1924 (with universal suffrage from 1953). From 1958 to 1962, the island was a member of the Federation of the West Indies. On 22 February 1979, Saint Lucia became an independent state of the Commonwealth of Nations associated with the United Kingdom.[4] Saint Lucia has a legal system based on English common law.
  • 2.  St. Lucia is one of the Windward Islands, located in the middle of the Eastern Caribbean chain. Its terrain is a combination of high mountains, forests, low-lying lands and beaches. Mountain ranges runs the length of the island and forests dominate the mountains, while jasmine, scarlet chenille and wild orchids provide splashes of color to the lush green slopes.  On a typical October day, during the early morning hours you will probably find the temperature will be around 81.5 degrees. Temperatures on St. Lucia typically rise during the day, to an average of 85.0 degrees in the early afternoon. By the early evening hours in October the temperature will generally fall to somewhere in the vicinity of 79.5 degrees. For the month of October as a whole, temperatures on St. Lucia average around 82.9 degrees.  October is hurricane season in the Caribbean.  If it rains it is generally in the afternoon and brief St. Lucia
  • 3.  Vacationers should be aware that there can be a great deal of variation in weather between the different regions of St. Lucia. If you are visiting one of the beaches around Castries or Rodney Bay, expect temperatures to be high but not unbearable due to the cool breeze off the water. Visitors exploring one of the trails through the rain forest in the center of the island need to be prepared for some very hot and humid weather without any relief from the winds. Adventurous travelers can cool off on a hike to one of the Piton mountains, the distinguishing landscape feature of St. Lucia. Temperatures will drop significantly as the altitude increases and travelers may even want to bring along a light jacket to stay comfortable in the cool weather. St. Lucia

  • 5. St. Lucia  Soufrière  Soufrière is located on the southwestern coast of St. Lucia and was the former capital when under French possession. It is also the oldest town in St. Lucia. Unlike Castries, much of the original architecture still stands today, so if you want a taste of French colonial architecture, Soufrière is the place to be. The waterfront of this town is so picturesque it draws movie studios and tourists alike. Soufrière is an excellent destination for visitors to experience both the St. Lucian culture and the environment. Soufrière has everything, from beautiful beaches to towering mountains. For the adventurous traveler, it is the perfect destination for both relaxation and adventure. Just outside of Soufrière is the popular drive-in volcano which is thought to have once been a site for human sacrifice by the Arawak Indians. Visitors are allowed to drive very nearly into the volcano and then be guided around the area by a tour guide. Just south of the town of Soufrière along the bay, the most distinguishing feature of St. Lucia can be found, the Pitons. These two towering twin mountains are not only beautiful to look at, but they a popular hiking destination that draw people from around the world.
