St. Lucia: A Spectacular Setting for Incentive Travel

Pitons St. Lucia There are a number of compelling reasons to consider St. Lucia as a destination for incentive travel, weddings and team building retreats. This tropical paradise has rainforests, lush gardens, beaches, waterfalls and sulfur springs.

St Lucia's most famous landmarks, the Pitons, soar 2,000 feet above sea level. The Gros Piton and the Petit Piton are spectacular dormant volcanic mountains that have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

St. Lucia serves up a unique cultural blend of Amerindian (indigenous Arawak and the Carib), African, British, French and Indian influences.

Waterfall, St. LuciaNot only does St. Lucia have some of the most exquisite resorts built into the natural environment that you will find anywhere (we'll look at 4 of them later), there is something to do for almost everyone. Thrill seekers can go rock climbing, white water rafting, or ziplining (even at night). In this luscious setting, outdoor adventure enthusiasts will find that a wide range of activities are easily accessible in St. Lucia. Options for exploring the rainforest include the Rainforest Aerial Tram, ATV tours and mountain biking. There is horse riding at Gros Islet and a Segway tour along the Rodney Bay coastline. Water adventures include snorkeling, scuba diving and beach kayaking.

St. Lucia's historical sites include:

  • Pigeon Island National Park, the vantage point from which Admiral George Rodney monitored the movement of French troops based in Martinique
  • Morne Fortune, the battleground where the French and British fought to control St. Lucia.

At Anse Mamin, which was a 17th-century cocoa and sugar plantation, visitors can hike or cycle through citrus groves, jungle and rainforest trails.
