Saint Lucia is more mountainous than other Islands in the Caribbean, the highest point being Mount Gimie at 950 metres above sea level. The island’s famous landmark, the iconic Pitons, rises 2,000 feet up from the sea and shelter the fabulous rain forests. Within the rainforest, there are lush fields and orchards of coconut, mango, papaya and banana trees. Tourism is the main source of income here and the people have a reputation for their charm and warmth.
Many travelers visit St. Lucia mid-December through to the middle of April, which is the busy high season. At this time, attractions, hotels and restaurants are very heavily booked and of course more expensive than during the off season. The benefit, however, is better weather – the least amount of rain falls during this period and the weather is warm, but not stifling. The hurricane season coincides with an increase in rain and temperatures, marking the off-season in St. Lucia. June through to November are the wettest months, with most of the rain being in the form of short heavy downpours followed by bright sunshine - the temperature tends to rise a few degrees making the heat feel a little more uncomfortable. Prices of airline tickets and hotel prices can drop up to 50% after mid-April and remain low for the summer and the hurricane season.
