Your vacations in Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia (Sainte-Lucie) is an island nation in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the Lesser Antilles, the country is located north / northeast of the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique. Its size is 620 km² with an estimated population of 160,000. Its capital is Castries.

As a Commonwealth realm, Saint Lucia recognizes Queen Elizabeth II as its Head of State, represented on the island by a Governor-General. Executive power, however, is in the hands of the Prime Minister and his or her cabinet.

The culture of Saint Lucia has been influenced by African, French and English heritage. One of the secondary languages is Creole, a form of French patois.

Tourism is vital to St. Lucia's economy and the economic importance of such is expected to continue to increase as the global market for bananas becomes more competitive. Tourism tends to be more substantial during the dry season (January to April). St Lucia tends to be popular due to its tropical weather and scenery, and its large number of beaches and resorts.
