Saint Lucia, now an independent state, was by far our favorite of the Caribbean islands. We enjoyed one of the most peaceful and scenic boat rides we’ve ever experienced to the Gros Piton and Petit Piton mountains. Lasting over 2-hours, this boat ride provided constant opportunities for amazing photos of the green mountains and deep blue sea, one of which we had printed onto a canvas.
After the boat ride concluded, we took a bus to the Piton mountains, and visited mud baths which are said to help with eczema and others skin problems. Be ready, the mud is very hot! It was a unique and unforgettable experience. Afterwards, we visited a waterfall and drank Saint Lucia’s beer, Piton, of course. This six hour tour by boat and bus was $144 per couple, and the experience was well worth the price. We made some awesome friends, Stephen and Ashley, from Wisconsin.
The boat ride is a must, but if you prefer land, there are plenty of other great things to do.
