How to Spend 4 Days in St Lucia – 4 Activities in 4 Days: St. Lucia

Sugar Beach in St. Lucia

For an island that’s less than 240 square miles in size, St. Lucia offers an overwhelming amount of diversity. Between the language (Creole French), the fresh seafood, and the jaw-dropping vistas, it’s hard to not overload your To Do list. We picked four of our favorite ways to spend a long weekend on the island.

Rum Tasting
Rum is one of the most popular beverages throughout the Caribbean. Courtesy of Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina, visitors to St. Lucia can get an exclusive look at the island’s singular rum distillery and the making of beloved Caribbean rums.  On Wednesdays, in the Capella Marigot Bay Rum Cave, a guided tasting includes the history of rum and how it is produced. The hour-long interactive lecture introduces three (or more) rums and includes snacks for palate cleansing. Ask Dennis, owner of Rum Cave, to try a few of his favorites and see how yours stack up. Private tastings can also be arranged during your stay for $35 per person.
