We booked a hike/bath in the rain forest through the tour desk at Sandals. Superior Tours took us up into the rain forest, to the "Valley of Spirits", according to our guide, who lives on a family farm founded by his great-grandfather. Their farm backs up to the Preserve. We got to see their banana farm - run by a... More

The information sign we saw at the beginning of the trail said it was 4 km long, through tropical forest and mountain rain forest. Getting about 20 inches of rain a year. The narrow trail was as well maintained as could be expected, considering the terrain. We saw evidence of hardcore been carried up for repairs, which must have been... More

The zip-rides and gondola rides through the rainforest are spectacular. It is like stepping back into the Jurassic time. I am not fit enough for the zip-wire, but took a gondola with a guide which was a brilliant experience.

Basically when in St. Lucia, you at some point will be driving through the rain forest. It's super cool and lush green. if you are visiting, the driver usually is telling you all about their rain forest. For instance...no monkeys on the island. Their water source is from the rain forest. Best drinking water I've ever had.

The van driver was excellent and skilled; short ride to the site. Arrival at the site - orientation was given and shortly went on the tram. Shantal described flora, fauna, history and sights in the distance. She was most knowledgeable and entertaining. I would certainly ask for her to be my guide if I went back. In addition, she accompanied... More

A trip to the Rain Forest is well worth doing if you are visiting the island by ship as the journey from the port is lovely. However, the Rain Forest itself is rather dark and very damp and there is not much wildlife or colour to see except of course for green which under the canopy is also rather dark.... More

If you cross from the Caribbean Coast to the Atlantic Coast, you will drive through rainforest half-way across. There is one unmanned entry-point (on the right if you are driving East-to-West) where you can park your rental car and walk into the forest. Signs claim that this is not allowed without a guide, but no-one is there and there is... More

Chickened out of doing the zip wires last year but really enjoyed it this year. Very good safety briefing followed by a trial zip before going up the mountain in a gondola with two other couples and 2 instructors and guides. Very good explanation of flora and fauna on the way up. Short walk to the 1st zip wire. The... More

Great fun and great guides.Many thanks Kennedy and Nicholas who made the tours so interesting.Kennedy is a `card` who knows his stuff backwards and was a font of knowledge about the flora and fauna ,also a reassuring presence on the zip wire platforms as was Nicolas at the other end as `brake-man`highly recommended.

This was part of our Cosol Tour. It was raining very hard throughout our visit so we could do little to enjoy this attraction but take a few pictures. At the higher elevations, the plant material was beautiful. It is a shame that the locals leave their trash along the main road cutting through the forest.
