This tour gives you a taste of St Lucia’s culture and traditions. The day starts in Castries, the island’s bustling capital. Only a handful of original, colonial buildings are left standing today, but its picturesque harbourfront setting means the city has held on to its charm. You’ll drive towards Morne Fortune, a hilltop area known for offering up wide-angle views of Castries, and you’ll have the chance to flick your camera to panorama mode while you’re here. Afterwards, it’s on to Eudovic’s Art Studio. Here, you’ll get to see a live wood-carving demo, plus you can buy some of the intricate sculptures that are on offer. A drive through the countryside is next, en route to Fond Latisab Creole Park. For this final stop of the day you’ll experience some old-world island traditions. You’ll get to try some handmade cassava bread, and watch two-man saws chop trees to the rhythm of shak-shaks – the Caribbean’s answer to maracas.
