The volcanic peaks of Saint Lucia

Although we had couples choose most places in the Caribbean last year – and as we’ll see later, plenty chose multiple islands to tour – the laid-back beaches and volcanic peaks of Saint Lucia proved to be the most popular individual country. Saint Lucia is tropical and tranquil, iconic and welcoming.
