Despite the last hotel, it sounds like you had a great trip, Warren. Thanks for sharing. You had no problem with the altitude then! I'm so glad. Where to next???

Hi. Yes, we had a great trip!! And no problem with the altitude although we could feel it at times during our walk/runs and hiking.

Not sure what is next. Any ideas? We have never went skiing beyond New England so we always say that we will head out west for some skiing. Yet, we may decide to just ski local and head off for some sun somewhere. Thanks.

It sounds like it was a glorious trip!

If you want to ski, you can't beat the powder in the western US. I thought I was a decent skier but skiing on the natural powder snow in the western states is truly amazing.

Of if you want to go to the sun, I'd go to St. Lucia. My favorite places are between the Tetons. The former Hilton Jalousie (along the beach with walk-in snorkeling along the base of the Piton) and also Ladera on the ridge above. Take water taxis from the beach to other places on the island - or the hotel will hook you up with a taxi driver to explore, including soaking in a natural hot springs with water heated by the volcano. Pure paradise.

Here's the beach resort. Stay in private villas along the hillside (shuttles provided) with private terraces and plunge pools -

And then at least a couple of nights at the amazing Ladera -

On the ridge above the beach. They do have shuttles down to the beach as well.

Yup, those are places that I would like to stay. May be back to you with some additional questions. Looks beautiful. We did stop at St. Lucia for a quick excursion from a cruise and always said we wanted to go back. Maybe now is the time. Thanks!

I've stayed on the drier end of the island. It was okay. I LOVED the lusher side of the island. Staying near or between the Pitons = magical.
On the other side of the Piton to the right = Anse Chastanet with their black sand beach. We'd take a water taxi over there for the day. Bought a great carving from a vendor on the beach, although I didn't have enough money with me. His name was Sunshine Biscuit. That was quite the experience and story. LOVE St. Lucia.
