Explore Enchanting Places with Cheap Holidays to St Lucia

by Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals

An island nation located in the Caribbean Sea, St Lucia has seen a steady growth in its tourism industry over the years. It has some enchanting natural features and cultural offerings that continue to fascinate tourists from different parts of the world. The island was named after a Christian martyr known as Saint Lucy of Syracuse by the French, who were the first settlers in this country from Europe. Most of the people who make a trip to this island destination are cruise travellers. A holiday spent in this island nation would give you ample opportunities to explore its white-sand beaches and other enchanting natural features.

If you wish to enjoy cheap holidays to St Lucia, visit during the hurricane season, which begins in the month of July and lasts until November. The hotels and resorts in this part of the world offer huge discounts on accommodations, but there's always a possibility of hurricanes during this time of the year. You can also grab some discounts during the rainy months of May and June, but you'll have to book your hotel stay or holiday package several months in advance. St Lucia experiences the best climatic conditions during the months between December and April. If you choose to visit during these months, you'll have to be prepared to pay higher room rates for your hotel stays and face large tourist crowds.

You can plan your St Lucia holidays for the month of the St Lucia Carnival to get the chance to witness this country's largest cultural festival. This carnival involves zestful celebrations with dance and music. You'll also be amazed by the colourful costumes that the participants display during the festivities. Towards the end of the festival, you'll have the opportunity to witness a road march competition and a costumed parade. This festival attracts nearly 5,000 participants in amazing costumes, 30,000 spectators, and over 60,000 television viewers.

The St Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival is also worth watching out for while planning your St Lucia holidays. It was formerly known as the St Lucia Jazz Festival, but it has now taken on the present name owing to the addition of arts and food to it over the years. You'll get to watch the top artists in action if you plan your holidays to coincide this festival. The week-long festivities involved in the festival include exhibitions and fashion shows. Most of these events are held in the northern parts of St Lucia.

During your time spent in this island country, you'll also get to indulge in some thrilling outdoor activities. One of them is zip-lining, which you can enjoy while exploring the rainforest. This activity would give you ample opportunities to savour bird's eye views of the lush green environs in this part of St Lucia. A hiking expedition on the Pitons can be a wonderful way of enjoying the delightful sights of beautiful natural surroundings. You can go sailing from the Vigie Cove using a chartered boat and enjoy a reef fishing excursion. A good catch of fish would delight you, whether you're a novice or an expert.
