St Lucia – An Exotic destination

Hey folks,

This blog features my latest trip to enchanting St Lucia. I was feeling a bit monotonous at my workplace and so I decided to go out with my friends to some exotic destination. We discussed about it nearly for two weeks and finally zeroed in on St Lucia as it packs many lovely attractions and scenic beaches. Through net, we came to know about an awesome site, Zipholidays. With simple-to-use search facility, we picked out the best deal on St Lucia and they assured us value for money and fun and asked us to pack our bags for an exciting sojourn.

When I got the re-confirmation through phone, I informed this to my friends and we started to plan on how to go about. We fixed a moderate budget and informed our offices of our trip. Since our main motive was to explore the region, we bought guidebooks and checked for some really irresistible offers. We worked out the best offers.

I have read that St Lucia is a small, rich tropical paradise that shelters splendid rain forests, magnificent beaches and excellent resorts. I wanted to explore it in reality.

If your goal is to just relax, you can opt for all inclusive packages that take away worries about costs. If you are like us, to be encircled by some of the best sceneries, it is better to go towards south side, the rural part of St Lucia. The southern part is known for water sports such as snorkelling, yachting and scuba diving and we ventured into some water sports for a while. Its northern side is more populated and touristy place and it has the capital of Castries that is renowned for duty free shopping. We bought some Venetian souvenirs from these duty free shops.

St Lucia helicopters, a private company enabled us to enjoy panoramic views of the place. We were amazed by the fabulous view of the scenic island. Then we hiked through lush rainforests and we walked along giant trees and explored the indigenous tree species. We found it very informative and adventurous.

The next day we went to another tour called “Jungle tours” and saw the natural wonders of the island. At the end of the day, St Lucia offered its own unique music with locals playing it with utmost pleasure. Since most of the hotels provide nightly entertainment we enjoyed watching the Steel Pan bands, local bands and some limbo dancers.

We dined at the highly recommended Dasheen restaurant that is situated at Ladera Resort. We also relished at the Debbie’s Restaurant known for originality, ambience and price. As we went there in April, we could not experience the hurricane season that starts from June. Getting around may not be a cheap proposition as you will find renting a car or taxi significantly expensive. So we opted for local buses.

Typically I get up at 5 and do some yoga till 6:30 am. And then the usual chores. Two weeks into our trip and we are back to our place.

So.. I highly suggest that you folks also enjoy the pleasures that we got from our dream St Lucia holidays. Just like us, you too check out zipholidays.co.uk and you will find an array of cheap holiday offers.
