Saint Lucia is a small, lush tropical island that is still relatively unknown. It is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent. Mountainous and lush, this jewel of the Windwards is a place of green lush natural landscape where the twin peaks of The Pitons rise over 2,000 feet at the water's edge, where the rain forests shelter wild orchids, giant ferns and birds of paradise. You can visit Soufriére, the world's only drive-in volcano, or relax in the earth's rejuvenating heat in the pools at Diamond Baths. And spend an evening in Marigot Bay, one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean. Just when you tire of palm-fringed beaches, secluded anchorages and dive sites in every direction, there's the incredible Friday night "jump-up" at Gros Islet on Rodney Bay.
