Essence of St. Lucia

“See, Smell and Taste the Flavors of the Island”

Barefoot Holidays is thrilled to announce the launch of its newest signature excursion, “Essence of St. Lucia”.  This is an enlightening and refreshing tour which takes you on a unique journey of exploration into how life was lived in days gone by.

“Essence of St. Lucia” offers an opportunity to discover the secrets of local Coconut Oil, to see a Traditional Medicinal and Herb Garden and learn the local folklore about how our forebears used those plants and herbs. Participants can stroll through the grounds amidst tropical fruit trees and flowering plants, and view the ancient “Platene” used in the making of Cane Sugar and Cassava Farine, the “Old Styled Fowl Coop” (Chicken House), the outdoor cooking fireplace, and Clay Oven used for baking bread, which were all very important in providing food for our people.

Visitors may enrich their travel experience by learning intriguing facts about our Traditional Creole Headwear and Dress whilst trying them on.   On this escapade, one gets a chance to view a varied and interesting display of Historic artifacts depicting the Amerindian, European and African influences on our history.

The special added value of this expedition lies in tasting what was seen- a variety of tropical fruits, island delicacies, local rums and much more.

The first excursion was organized for niche markets, travel agents, and international tour operators.  This excursion commences at the beginning of April 2015 and will be available every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
