Averages for St Lucia in October
In October, visitors are likely to run into rainy weather on any given day, but the sun is never far away, giving them a chance to enjoy all the indoor and outdoor attractions of the island.
Thanksgiving, presumably an American holiday, is not exclusive to that country as some would believe. In fact, many countries celebrate at least one (some of them several) Thanksgiving every year.
It is now considered a secular holiday. St. Lucia celebrates this day in October with the Feast of La Marguerite, in which locals and tourists can dine on the unique Creole food for which the island is known.
These celebrations, complete with flower parades and choruses, are not held in the bustling city streets, though. They are much more popular in the rural villages.
Shopping is always an exciting activity in St. Lucia, since tourists are likely to find one-of-a-kind, handmade crafts created by people right there on the island, especially at the Castries market in the capital.
Museums are a good idea for those who want to avoid the rain altogether.
A popular one which is unlike any other is the Our Planet museum, which boasts holograms and interactive activities about the Earth. Children and adults alike are sure to thoroughly enjoy this exhibit.
For those that want their accommodation to be central, Harmony Suites is a great option. The affordable resort is situated in Rodney Bay and is close to many of the shopping and dining facilities as well as being minutes away from the beach. For those that want to travel further, the hotel also has a car rental service.
