How far is everything from Cap Estates?

I am renting a villa in Cap Estates, St Lucia. I was curious to how if it is within walking distance to anything? Last year I stayed in Marigot Bay and wound up paying $600 in cab fares!!!!(US).

The roads and drivers there are not desirable and I am nervous to drive over there because on the wrong side of the road for me!

I plan to have a driver pick me up at the airport but curious about the remainder of my stay!

Thank you!

There is nothing within walking distance of villas in Cap Estate. It is a fairly private area to the very north of the island, about 10-15 minutes past Rodney Bay. Cab rides are about $20US or so one way into Rodney Bay (depending on wher ein Cap you will be) where there are over 30 restaurants and bars, casino, shopping, etc.

Very, very few buses all the way run up into Cap Estate and those are mainly for the workers at the few resorts in Cap.

If you are planning to visit down south to Soufriere - expect to pay around $150+ US for a cab, depending on wher eyou are going and how long - probably closer to $200US R/T. It will be about $90US one way from UVF airport in the south to Cap.

You may want to consider a rental car for a few days after all - or stay somewhere more central, like actually in rodney Bay, wher eyou can walk to restaurants and beach and bars, etc. buses are easier to catch for around the north, etc.

Good luck - enjoy your visit.

Well, Cap Estate is in the farthest north end of the island, so not really walking distance to anything. You're only about a 5-10 min. cab ride to Rodney Bay/Marina area -- maybe $10 one way.
