Chocoholics should take note – Chocolate Heritage Month in Saint Lucia is the perfect time to visit this beautiful Caribbean island, which is the home of some of the world’s finest chocolate and cacao. Chocolate tourism peaks in August with chocolate-themed events including specialized cacao plantation tours, chocolate-making tutorials and cocoa-infused menus throughout the island.
If you think you might be bored on this gorgeous Caribbean island, think again. There are plenty of things to do in Saint Lucia, including adventurous activities, water sports, boat trips and even scenic helicopter tours, so you can do as much (or as little!) as you wish.
The island of Saint Lucia is rich in biodiversity and wildlife. Pods of dolphins, colonies of fruit bats and many exotic birds are sure to be part of your vacation experience at Calabash Cove. However, many of the plants, birds and reptiles are only found on the island, making it important to protect these rare endemic species.
