We planned two excursions while on our St. Lucia honeymoon and by Tuesday afternoon, we were ready to venture away from the resort so we booked our first excursion for Wednesday.

Wednesday

On Wednesday, we did a speed boat tour around St. Lucia.

The tour took us by Marigot Bay- home of Dr. Doolittle.

The Pitons- St. Lucia’s most famous landmark. Our tour guide called them “boobies” because, well they kinda look like boobies.

This was looking down from the dock.The water was so clear and they said the visibility was 20-40 feet.

Soufriere St. Lucia

The town of Soufriere where the worlds only drive-in volcano is located. The volcano has a sulphur spring where you can take a mud bath.

Yeah…the look on everyone’s face pretty much describes the smell.

Turns out, muddy sulphur water stinks and stains.

The smell seriously gagged us.

Fountain of youth St. Lucia

From the sulphur springs, we headed to the Botanical Gardens to a naturally hot Mineral Waterfall known as the fountain of youth. What I don’t have a picture of is the “restaurant” we ate at on our way home and I used the word restaurant very lightly because it was seriously someones house. We just pulled up and this little old lady had a meal ready for us and we ate it outside on her porch. St. Lucian food at it’s finest and it was delicious. What wasn’t delicious was getting back on the boat and getting sea sick as a dog on the way home.

Nothing a little pool time and a brick oven pizza wouldn’t fix!

Beautiful views from the lobby. The skies and water were so clear midweek and on.

After breakfast on Thursday, we headed on our second excursion which was zip lining over the tree tops. It was about a 45 minute drive from the resort so we were able to see most of the island.

Not even sure how this happened? St. Lucian drivers are crazy!

Our tour guide had a girl on our bus convinced that these were the zip lines. #seriously?

Cory is terrified of heights so he was a little worried about zip lining at first but you really couldn’t tell how high up you were because the tree tops looked like the ground. If you could really see how high you were, it would have freaked us both out.

Of course this was one of the first lines so that really is the ground.

Now you can see the tops of the trees.

We survived and had a blast! The views from up there were amazing and I would definitely recommend zip lining if you plan on visiting St. Lucia.

St. Lucia dogs

Of course, I was attracted to the only dog I saw the whole trip. Turns out, you’re not supposed to approach strays in foreign countries but look at the way he’s looking at me! I wanted to take him with me :(

On the way back to the resort, we stopped at some different places that had some gorgeous views. This was the view from a fire station.

I had originally planned on this being my last recap of Our Love Story but it ended up being way too many pictures so I decided to extend it just one more week to finish our honeymoon recap. Check back next Wednesday for our last two days on our St. Lucia honeymoon!

  1. St. Lucia looks heavenly!! We’ve never been and it’s the perfect tropical vacation!! I love zip lining – we’ve been a couple of times and it’s just the perfect excursion!

  2. Love the zip lining pictures! THat was one thing I’m sad we didn’t do while in Hawaii… but I guess we’ll save it for the next trip :) Can’t get over how clear the water is, so pretty!

  3. I’d be going up to every stray – & probably sneak some home :)
    The looks on faces at that mud pit :) haha Anything with the word sulfur – yeah, cant imagine it’d be good.

  4. What a beautiful honeymoon! Too funny about the muddy sulpher! Yuck! We went ziplining on our honeymoon too! How fun!!! And I was just thinking about recapping our honeymoon because time hop reminded me this week that it was one year ago we were there! :)

  5. Paige! Your honeymoon looks amazing!! John and I wanted to go to St. Lucia, but the plane tickets were soo expensive! Maybe for an anniversary, though. Your pictures are giving me travel fever :) :)

    1. Yes! The plane tickets were almost as much as the week stay at the resort but it was worth every penny! It would be awesome to go back especially for an anniversary!
