St. Lucia has now been known as the number one honeymoon destination not only in the Caribbean but in the world. What is it about this amazing island that keeps people coming back even after they have spent their honeymoon or had their wedding? Well, I can think of a few things. Follow me down this journey to see why you can do on the island of St. Lucia to have your perfect honeymoon.
How much is a honeymoon in St. Lucia?
This is always a big question when planning your honeymoon in St. Lucia. Most people believe it might cost over $4k, but honestly, it is all in the planning. If you plan your honeymoon in advance, look up the tours, try staying at a Villa or Airbnb instead of an all-inclusive resort, not only will you be saving but you will experience the fullness of the island not being secluded to just the resorts. On the other hand, if you book your resorts in advance in the low season then you have a better chance to get an all-inclusive resort with all the perks at a cheaper rate.
Best areas to stay in St. Lucia for your Honeymoon
To answer this question, we would have to know what type of honeymooner you are. Are you the type to have a quiet peaceful honeymoon, or do you want to just enjoy to the fullest with the street parties? Some people may love to have it all. So, I would say the best place to stay on the island is where your heart lies. If you want to be close to the main attraction, you should stay in the South of the island which is Soufriere or Gros Islet if you want to be where the party is.
