St Lucia Bike and Hike Half-Day Tour from the North Island

Castries, Saint Lucia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The bike tour in the rain forest was fun, however, between the hills, the heat and the humidity, it was very strenuous. Strong cyclists will love it, while a novice might need to ride the bus up the hills. The downhill was fun, but the trail is still washed out in sections from the rain which made going too fast dangerous. Once we left the bikes and hit the waterfall the fun really began (in my opinion). The waterfall decent was not too steep nor too long and once you arrived it was the perfect refreshment to the strenuous uphill bike ride. The water was cool and the guides were very hospitable. They opened coconuts and took pics of everyone with our cameras. All in all I would recommend it - just be sure you are physically fit enough to climb the hills.

My Review

The catamaran day sail was wonderful! We took a very soothing catamaran ride into Sofriere where we took the land tour into the drive in volcano. Please be aware: this is a drive in volcano - not a drive through volcano. I guess in my over processed culture I just thought it was drive through, but you do have to leave the bus and take a tour with a guide along the edge of the volcano. I got some outstanding photos, so please be sure you have your camera. We also toured the plantation and I've read some rotten reviews about the buffet and I can tell you we did not have that experience. Everyone at the plantation was charming, the views were spectacular, the gift shop has the best locally harvested items at the best price and the food was good. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour just do not expect to be picked up on time at your hotel. We found most excursions were running about 20 to 30 minutes late including this one.
