The beauty is breathtaking
Mar 2019 • Couples
The world is an amazing place with so much beauty. This piece of Heaven is so stunning, you don’t want to take your eyes off of it. The Pitons are a MUST! 💕 We also took a catamaran trip from our Sandals Resort to the base of the Pitons for snorkeling! A-MAZING! Absolutely one of the most awesome things I’ve ever done, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! 🐠 🌊 🐟

Perfect in Grandeur!
Nov 2020
The Pitons are such a majestic piece of scenery and stand in such grandeur! When visiting St Lucia, it would be obvious that you should see them because they are so important to the island.

There are hikes, diving spots, and drives that will allow you to view different angles of both the Gros and the Petit Piton.

This trip, we did a drive to the Botanical Gardens to grab some photos, and did scuba at the base of the Petit Piton. I highly recommend both (see separate reviews).

Magnificent Site

This was a beautiful site. I understand that you can climb the mountain but that wasn’t for me. This felt like living in a travel guide. It is so beautiful.

Love the Pitons
Mar 2020
Pitons are incredible and really make this part of the Island the place to be. We hiked near them, did a sunset cruise by them, and every day we work up at Ladera we stared at them. The view never got old.

A must see in person
Sep 2019
OMG every time I look at one of my pics I feel the awe all over again. This is something I've wanted to see for quite awhile and it was part of our island tour from the cruise ship. Definitely worth the long drive.

The Pitons is a mighty sight. What else can I say? It might help to sit at this restaurant of course.

This is a must on your visit. They are very special in a national park. You can also have a mud bath.

Be prepared
Mar 2020
The scenery was as beautiful as we had hoped for. We had taken a tour through Solar Tours and were not given the supplies the brochure said we would receive and so we were not prepared. They do not supply water. You need to buy it and they did not provide separate fresh fruit, it apparently came with the lunch at the end but the lunch was a buffet and fresh fruit was not offered. The package we paid for was completely misleading and without a proper amount of water for the level of difficulty of the hike, it was dangerous.
Our guide, Katia, was very nice. Although we were not able to complete the hike, she was understanding and not judgmental at all.
There are no areas to wait for your group. We ended up sitting on the ground to wait but quickly got up due to being bitten by ants almost immediately.
We love St. Lucia and the people are beyond welcoming but this was not a very well organized excursion.

Port of Call St Lucia aboard Crown Princess
Feb 2020
We visited St Lucia during our Caribbean cruise aboard the Crown Princess. Upon arrival, we coordinated a day tour with a local taxi driver for a reasonable price. We were very fortunate in that they assigned us to John Mentor. jmentor63@gmail.com John was easily the best driver we could have imagined. Our goal was to drive around the entire island and see as much as possible. John set out showing us many sights and viewpoints along the way giving us as much time as we wanted at each stop and explaining about each part of the island. Since he new we were pressed for time, he took us to a Rum sampling and recommended we not do the Rum tour since it would take too much time and he was right. He showed us the difference between bananas and plantains and got us some fresh coconuts. As we drove, he stopped at a few local places showing the food and preparation methods. By the time we got to the Pitons, it was approaching noon and we were worried that we wouldn't make it back to the ship on time so we told John to turn around and he obliged. On the way back he took us to other view points and got us back to the ship in plenty of time. I highly recommend John as a guide. Once back at the ship, John saw us walking to the other port and offered us a ride.
