Ahhh Castries, St. Lucia.... It is stunning! I am currently 4 days in to my 5 day trip to this beautiful island. Although there was a 23 hour and 20 minute flight from costa rica to here (about a 17 hour layover in Miami), the two countries I've stayed at are only about 2700 km apart. It was also pricey, about $650, but totally worth it.. Luckily the time is the same as at home so I had no problem adjusting!
In St. Lucia it was a must to visit the breathtaking beaches. I went to Malabar beach which had golden sand and there weren't many tourists which was nice. It was also close to popular areas to shop and dine. I wanted to eat with the locals and found a cute beach bar called Spinnakers, where fresh seafood, especially shrimp, was brought in daily.
This is the seafood platter I got at Spinnakers
I must go, because I have a flight early in the morning tomorrow. Unfortunately this means I can't explore tomorrow, but it also means I get to my next destination!!! I can't WAIT
