Coco Palm - Do I need a converter?

Just wondering if the Coco Palm has any outlets in their rooms that will take U.S. appliances (digital camera espcially) or do I need to buy a converter?

Power sockets? Don't know about facilities at Coco Palm, but standard power sockets in St Lucia are the UK "13 amp" 3-pin.

Voltage 220V (I was told). Had no problems charging camera and Palm batteries. 50 cycles, I guess, but my equipment wouldn't have been fussy about that, I think.

No, the UK 13 amp sockets won't take US plug of any sort. You need an adaptor to deal with that. Try your nearest travel shop. Airport shops stock them in the UK. Don't recall having seen them in the US, but that was fifteen and more years ago, and memory fades.

They have one or two outlets that will take US appliances. We had no problem charging our camera or using the blow dryer.

Plug sockets seem to take appliances from uk and us. Don't forget to pack your ear plugs if you want to get to sleep before midnight!

Coco Palm actually carry dual voltage plugs. They have plugs to take both US appliances and UK appliances.

Hope that this answers your question.
