ST LUCIA

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • Very special hotels that offer priceless views of UNESCO World Heritage site the Pitons, the biggest draw in the West Indies
  • The underwater sights are equally scenic: Dive sites such as Coral Gardens, Piton Wall, and Superman's Flight are world-class.
  • The Friday night "jump-ups" at Gros Islet and Soufrière
  • Good buys: baskets woven from Aralie, jewelry of dé défouden seeds, and other rain-forest crafts. Spiced rum with bois bande—a kind of bark they call "St. Lucia Viagra."

WHEN TO GO

High season is the Caribbean norm: mid-December to March. June to November can be wet, but look out for bargains.
