How To Plan The Ultimate Family Trip to the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia
Family travel to the island of St. Lucia is a snap with just a little planning ahead. At Cap Maison Resort and Spa, we’ve got plenty of fun at your fingertips and no shortage of activities for both young and old.
Below, check out our tips for simplifying your family travel experience to ensure making memories is all that’s on your family’s agenda. Learn more about our family package to see why families love Cap Maison.
Know When to Go
Like many Caribbean islands, St. Lucia’s high season runs from mid-December to mid-April, and the low season typically spans from mid-June to mid-November. While we’d love for you to join us any time of year, hotel rates may be significantly lower during low season.
Between May and June is when families can find the most idyllic temperatures, ranging from the 70s to high 80s. December and January are the coolest months, and June through August are the hottest.
Keep in mind: If you want to catch St. Lucia Jazz Festival in May or the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, the world’s largest ocean-crossing race, in late November/early December, remember to plan early to join in on all the fun.
Make Flying With Family a Breeze
Several airlines fly into Hewanorra International Airport at Vieux Fort, including American, Delta, US Airways and JetBlue. There are direct flights daily to St. Lucia from Atlanta, New York City, Newark, Miami, Montreal and London.
Have young ones in tow? Remember to pack fun activities and several snack options to keep the kids happy.
Plan Your Activities
While guests are more than welcome to rent a car to do solo sightseeing, our friendly front desk staff is more than happy to help coordinate a shuttle for your whole crew, as well as any excursions you may want to take during your trip.
When planning any day trip, note the island’s winding roads and make sure to organize each day’s activities within close distance to avoid too much time in the car.
