I can't believe I forgot to review this hike. It was incredible, amazing, hot, humid, beautiful, etc. Do not and I repeat do not use anyone else for your tour guide other than the tour guides waiting for you at the sight. As of Feb. 2015 they only cost $35 USD, plus tip. It is a St. Lucia law that... More

These mountains are a must see on your visit to St. Lucia. There are several types of trips available, I recommend the boat trip that will also take you to the volcano as well as the hot natural spring waters. Amazing

The Pitons are gorgeous. If you are in St. Lucia, don't miss them! Roads are windy- can make you car sick. We did a catamaran day trip for lunch, the Pitons, drive-in volcano and botanical gardens. It was great. WE booked through our hotel.

Spectacular view coming down the mountain road from Marigot Bay. There are about 3 pull offs that afford great views. The first is the best and does not include folks selling stuff at their vista. The next two are popular and include several local artists selling jewelry and food at the vistas. At the bottom of the hill as you... More

We did the round trip in 3 hours and 30 min. When we first started the hike it seemed it was going to be an easy one, but after maybe 15 min or less it starts getting tough. Even so, we enjoyed every minute of the time spent hiking and admiring the views. Really loved it. We did have muscle... More

We really wanted to be active and were dying to hike this. Our guide left a lot to be desired however. We're pretty active people and the guide couldn't keep up with us. She was stopping constantly without us asking or wanting her to. She was also pretty insulting, asking why we looked like we showered we were sweating so... More

The way this hike was sold to us, we were expecting a bit of a 'walk in the park'. It was definitely tougher than that! Some very steep stretches and some scrambling required. Slippery patches when wet. This is not to dissuade you; just go properly prepared. Stunning views over the whole island from the top. If you get there,... More

Yesterday, my 16 year old son and I climbed the Petit Piton. During our research beforehand, we saw several reviews warning us off of this endeavor. Upon our arrival to St Lucia, we even had a few locals/property owners tell us it was not suitable for anyone other than expert climbers. Both Zach and I are extremely glad we did... More

We're pretty fit. I run marathons. But this hike took quite a lot out of us. I saw quite a few folks turn back. It isn't easy. But it's worth it. Took us just under 3 hours round trip. Advice: Go as early as possible. It gets hot. My iPhone said it's like climbing 170 stories. If that scares you,... More

Hiked up mountain to view Pitons. Cloudy that day, but still amazing! The flora and fauna were unique and our guide was quite knowledgeable!
