St Lucia is a teardrop in the Caribbean Sea -The island has towns of French names and you may hear the tones in the local unoften used dialect Kweyol but the island was given up to the British in 1814. The local beer is called Piton and best time to visit is December to May to avoid the humidity and rain but if you want few people around then try other.
Things to do in St Lucia: Take a jeep and tour the Gros Piton (the big green pointed mountain making St Lucia instantly recognisable), the town of La Soufriere. Or find a great St Lucia Resort and go Scuba Diving. Deep sea fishing tours and day sailing tours. There is an abundance of nature in the rainforest and there are many tours that allow you to engage in this most green Caribbean Island. Check out Marigot Bay a black sand beach that has excellent snorkelling. For the energetic and water loving try windsurfing on Choc Beach.
