St. Lucia safety

Jump to last reply

Hi all. My husband and I are trying to plan our next trip. We've never been anywhere tropical, but are thinking it's time we try it. I have my hesitations due to being a magnate for mosquitos and having a hatred of bugs. Either way, I have started a list ... Hawaii, Mexico, and St. Lucia, with St. Lucia at the top.

Last night I was on youtube watching peoples videos of the different resorts but kept coming across newscasts of murders (choppings?). I know there is crime everywhere and I am certainly not naive. I'm just curious if tourists ever get caught up in the craziness on this island. Any advice/ thoughts you can lend us would be great.
