In June of 2014 we made a scuba diving trip to St. Lucia. St. Lucia is a sovereign country in the eastern Carribean Sea. We went with the folks from Blue Meridian Dive Center in Owensboro, Kentucky. We had a pretty big group, they made all the arrangements, and their planning was terrific. We have dived with this group numerous times and always have a great time. This was our first trip to St. Lucia, we were there for 7 days and the weather was excellent. The temperatures were generally in the low 90s during the day and low 80s during the evenings.
We stayed at the Anse Chastanet Resort which is located on the western side of the island. We had our own private villa with a king size bed and a fantastic view. We also had a small deck which had a great view of the water. The resort was very clean and well maintained and all of the villas were arranged to provide privacy from other villas. With a few exceptions, all of the rooms had no phones, TV, Internet, or air conditioning - this was fine with us but not everyone was pleased with the lack of air conditioning. They did have WiFi Internet access but only in the reception/restaurant complex. One thing worth pointing out is that the villas were located high in the hills and there were a lot of stairs down to the beach and dive shop and then back up to the rooms again. Linda counted 130 steps - a long slog by the end of the day.
We were on an all inclusive package so all meals were free and taken at the resort. This was probably a good thing since it was two miles down a dirt and gravel road to the nearest town and I'm not sure that there were too many restaurants there anyway. Although all of our meals, including a huge breakfast buffet, were free all drinks were extra unlike our package last year in Bonaire. The menus changed every evening and always included a variety of vegetarian meals.
