Explore the Island
Population: Over 183 627 people

Side of Street Drive-On: As you drive around St. Lucia remember to lean on the Left Hand Side of the road
Currency: Eastern Caribbean Dollar
Language: English is the National language that is also used as a medium of instruction. Residents who live in the rural of St.Lucia speak ‘Kweyo’ which is a Creole language a blend of French and African dialects. Efforts are in place to have ‘Kweyo’ as the second national language in the region.
Saint Lucia was initially named “Louanalao” this term cane from the Arawak Indians in 200 AD, which means “Island of the Iguanas,”. It was later baptised as “Hewanorra,” in 800 AD on the arrival of Carib Indians who introduced their culture into Saint Lucia. The descendants of the Carib can still be traced in Saint Lucia today. Caribs dominated Saint Lucia until the 1600s, when settlers wanted to take over the island so as to steer European trade. Despite the colonialism struggle, the Caribs kept on with the fight and severally blocked the English and French from living on the island.
Saint Lucia was not colonized by Juan de Cosa. A famous pirate called François Le Clerc, and Jambe de Bois as his nickname- because of his wooden leg was the actual colonizer. In 1550s, through Pigeon Island, Peg-Leg Le Clerc attacked Spanish ships. Currently, the island is a National Landmark, serving as a home of historic sites and museums that enthrall tourists.
In the 1600s, there were several attempts by the Dutch, English, and French to win Saint Lucia. Around 1600s the Dutch tried to construct Vieux Fort in vain, they were overpowered by the Caribs. In 1639, 400 British settlers made their entrance into the island. Before they clocked two years of their stay, the Caribs wiped them out.
In 1651, French West India Company bought the land from the Caribs with an aim of transforming it into a French colony, immediately, the English sent 1,000 men to recover the island. This fight went on up to 1814, when the French surrendered Saint Lucia to the English.
Saint Lucia was last among the European colonies to declare independence. She gained independence through the British Commonwealth in 1979. Today Saint Lucia has a thriving sovereign government and a peaceful economy.
With one international airport receiving flights from dozens of international destinations, flying to St. Lucia is easier than you’d expect. With dozens of flights from around North America, Europe, and South America, you will not have any difficulty getting to this tropical paradise.
Instead of dealing with the flights to St. Lucia, you can enjoy the leisurely life aboard a cruise as you coast through the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean.
Once you make it to the tropical paradise of St. Lucia, you might want to guide yourself around the island with a rental car. If you feel like travelling around the islands like a local, you can jump aboard one of the minivans that operate as a bus in the local communities.
