  1. Colin St Lucia is an absolutely beautiful place and the news headlines on crime should not deter you from visiting. I am a born and bred St Lucian who lives in England and I have been robbed in England but this has never happened to me in St lucia. There is absolutely no country that is "crime free". St Lucia is 238 square miles and therefore most if not all murders get reported by the media. Unlike countries like England, Canada, US etc where the population is millions and the media reports only a percentage of these crimes. I am a nurse in the Emergency Room at a hospital in England and I have seen many patients come in with stab wounds and gun shot wounds and it was never reported by the media. I work on the front line so I see such cases first hand. There are areas in St Lucia you would not just go visiting just like there are streets in NY for example you would not just go roaming and drop your guard. St Lucia remains an attractive tourist destination throughout the year and a popular stop for cruise ships. It remains an island with abundant natural beauty, diverse landscapes, lush rain forests, white sandy beaches and unique natural features.


  2. I am a 47 year old Canadian and my wife and I are considering visiting St. Lucia for two weeks next January. I must say that it kind of makes me nervous when I read things like this. I will be paying more attention to the St. Lucia news in the upcoming months. It is shocking that there have been over 20 murders so far this year. In contrast, my city of over 200 000 people has had just 1 murder so far in 2017. I know there are many wonderful people in St. Lucia and regardless of whether I decide to visit or not, I wish for nothing but peace and prosperity for everybody on the island.


    • Colin, most of them are also uneducated, and those that are educated are intransigent, cruel and do not encourage dynamism. They literally swamp & stifle the more educated & dynamic ones.


    • Colin, I been der the last 2 years for de best time of my life, de people are why and always will be. Struggling is happenin and will continue but hospitality is not a short suit, de real people will take care of you and yours. As for de happenings dis year...very sad and not goin unnoticed by de locals at all as us readin des stories day after day from a fat.
      Bless Stl an keep workin on healing and soldierin to be like de land you from....beautiful


  3. May God grace be upon the lady Lucia, we are facing a funder mental problem, st.Lucia what happen who is to blame, when a nation stops the prayers well we invites the devil.
