St. Lucia: Getting There

By Air

Unlike most Caribbean islands, St. Lucia is served by two international airports, so pay close attention here. More than one family has booked flights into one airport only to discover that their hotel was across the island, over an hour’s (expensive) taxi ride away.

The main airport is Hewanorra, located on the southern end of the island. It’s the larger of the two airports, with jet service from American Airlines, Air Canada, BWIA, and several European carriers. Hotels near the Pitons are only a short taxi ride from the Hewanorra terminal.

On the northern end of the island lies the small Vigie International Airport, located in the city of Castries. This is closest to the bulk of the island’s hotel properties, but it is served primarily by smaller carriers such as American Eagle, LIAT, and BWIA with daily service from New York and Miami.

By Ship

Cruise passengers arrive either in Castries or Soufriere. The Castries port is in easy walking distance of duty-free shopping and the Castries market.
