St Lucia has won many awards for its Heritage Tourism Programme, a strong and creative approach that introduces visitors to both the country’s Creole heritage and its outstanding natural beauty.
The island's Heritage Tours visit landmark locations that tourists are encouraged to visit on their own in rental cars or visit as part of an escorted tour. By taking tourists out into all regions of the island, the economic benefits of tourism are distributed to broader segments of society.
The programs include a Castries historical walking tour, a visit to the Folk Research Centre, the Friday night Anse La Raye Fish Fry. Even sea turtle nesting and piton hiking trips.
The Fond Latisab Creole Park displays classic Creole traditions such as preparing cassava bread, catching river crawfish and beekeeping.
