Solo Traveler Tips for Saint Lucia
Being a Solo Traveler in Saint Lucia
Though Saint Lucia is known to be a destination traditionally for honeymooners, this island can also be a paradise for a solo traveler longing for an unforgettable tropical experience. Since solo travel is becoming a norm and we continue to see a spike in such travelers, you should not be afraid to give it a try!
Exploring a new destination alone can be quite terrifying! Here on Saint Lucia, the easiest way to get around is by being friendly. It is more than likely that you get a positive feedback from islanders if you require a bit more information than what you were presented with on the local Map of the Island. In Saint Lucia, locals tend to treat their visitors just as they would treat their families, so you are always welcomed and well taken care of. Interacting with locals and roaming the history filled streets, will allow you to get the inside scoop on Saint Lucia; perhaps things you would probably miss if you were traveling in a group.
Not only is Saint Lucia an island with unique experiences, but it is one of the Caribbean Islands known for its rich culture, heritage, climate and amazing nightlife experiences. Whether you are extending a business trip or a simple get away from the family Saint Lucia has something for you.
On your Bucket List!
Looking to cross off some items from your bucket list? This little piece of bliss has an abundance of activities to offer. Home to the World’s Renowned majestic Twin Peaks, The Pitons, enjoy an exhilarating hike up Gros Piton for amazing views of the Caribbean Sea and a vast portion of the island itself. You may also consider zip lining through the lush, green rainforest or possibly even exploring the underwater world on an exciting scuba diving excursion. If adventure doesn’t excite you, just grab a beach chair and relax under the sun with a cocktail while enjoying Saint Lucia’s golden sand beaches.
For The Foodies!
For foodies, the mouth-watering cuisine is a must! A solo traveler may get an overwhelming fear of being judged for dining alone, but that is about it! After your first taste of this heartwarming cuisine, this fear will disappear just as fast as the food. Cuisine like the local National Dish of Saint Lucia, green fig and Salt fish can be found all around the island and it is definitely a must-try. This dish is made from salted codfish and Green bananas also called Green fig, that are cooked with locally grown seasonings and herbs. Oh! Don’t forget to top it off with a cold local beer, ‘Piton Beer’.
