Saint Lucia

The flight on Air'Canada's Rouge to Hevanorra International airport(UVF) in Saint Lucia was somewhat tiresome. We landed at a dusk hour and by the time we got in the mini van chartered by AirCanada it got pitch black, so we couldn't really see much outside of the van's window during our 1.5 hour ride to the resort.  Next day was dedicated to exploring grounds of beautiful Hideaway at Royalton Saint Lucia resort.

Almost every night there was a show at the theatre

Yes to breakfast on the beach!

If swimming in one of the resort's infinity pools doesn't do it for you there is an olympic-size lap pool in nearby Rodney Bay


As much as I enjoyed staying at the resort, I wanted to explore lush shores of carribean side of the island. I signed up for a boat excursion alone the cariibean coast to the Sugar Beach.

We boarded the boat in Castries, the capital of the island nation, and headed south.

Our first stop was at Marigot Bay, harbor featured in the 1967 film “Dr. Dolittle”

After a short stop at Marigot Bay we headed to the Pitons, two volcanic mountains: Gros Piton and Petit Piton

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

Looked at the Pitons one last time, we headed back

It was really dark by the time we got back to Castries.

The rest of the week we enjoyed the resort

We got another chance to see some of the island's amazing views on our way back to the airport
