Averages for St Lucia in December
As many tourist locations are gearing down a bit because of the approaching Christmas holidays, St. Lucia is just getting started.
December is the official beginning of the island’s highest amount of tourist traffic.
The weather there is warm all year, but certain parts of the year can be extremely rainy. The average amount of precipitation drops off an astounding 3” from November to December, making it a non-typical but excellent time of year to vacation on the island.
The Maria Islands Nature reserve is a place of interest for many people. It is made up of two islands just off the coast of St. Lucia. There, 120 species of plants and reptiles, many of them thought to be extinct elsewhere, make their home. In addition, there is a bird refuge that is colourful and interesting. Visitors are encouraged to pack a lunch and stay all day.
National Day, similar to Independence Day, is celebrated in December. The multi-faceted celebration includes everything from church services, sporting events and parades.
If you’re interested in scuba diving on your holiday, the Marigot Beach Club and Dive Resort is the perfect choice for your accommodation. The hotel is a PADI certified resort and caters to both beginners and experienced divers. The hotel can also arrange other water sports, tours and excursions for guests.
