St Lucia in the eastern Caribbean Sea is a wonderful holiday destination for senior travelers who are tired of noisy resorts ruled by teens and rowdy party revelers. The restaurants serving fragrant and delicious cuisine; golf; boat tours; shopping; and glorious sunshine all make for a fine travel experience. Throw in the La Rose, La Marguerite and St Lucia Jazz festivals, scenery and luxury resorts and you’re in for the holiday of a lifetime!
The dry season runs roughly from January to April, which is the best time to visit the island, although May and June are still good months for a visit despite occasional bursts of rain.
Entertainment in St Lucia
Take to the dance floors of St Lucia and you can make new friends and get a little fitter at the same time. Why not try to learn how to Tango, Cha Cha Cha or waltz the night away? For a taste of something more traditional or energetic try Calypso, Reggae, Salsa or Zouk!
Join cookery classes and learn how to make a traditional Caribbean dish of brown stew chicken, rice and peas, curries with a Caribbean twist, seafood dishes with conch and shrimp or macaroni pie. Anything goes in West Indian cuisine!
For restful walks try the Botanical Gardens. Thrill seekers might prefer a guided visit to St Lucia’s volcano or the sulphur springs in Soufrière. If you enjoy discovering the past, you’ll love seeing Fort Rodney, a historic British military base on St. Lucia.
