What to do in Saint Lucia: The Only Country Named After a Woman!

Hello, adventurers! Today we are going to explore a paradisiacal island in the Caribbean. Did you know that Saint Lucia is the only country in the world named after a woman? Incredible, isn't it?

Saint Lucia has a rich history that is intertwined with African, indigenous, French and British cultures. From the period of colonization to the fight for independence, this small Caribbean country is a true cultural melting pot.

Now, let's list five points that cannot be missed on your itinerary: the Pitons, majestic mountains that are a UNESCO heritage site; the city of Castries, the country's vibrant capital; Reduit Beach, perfect for a day of relaxation; the Diamond Falls Botanical Garden, a paradise for nature lovers; and Soufrière, the oldest town on the island.

In Saint Lucia, the currency is the East Caribbean dollar, but the US dollar is also widely accepted. The official language is English, so communication won't be a problem for most of us. And the good news for Brazilians is that they do not need a visa to enter Saint Lucia for up to 90 days!


Speaking in socioeconomic and political terms, Saint Lucia is a parliamentary democracy and its economy is heavily based on tourism and agriculture. In general, the country has a good quality of life, especially compared to other countries in the region.


How much does it cost to travel to this Caribbean paradise? The answer varies, but if you plan well and avoid high season, Saint Lucia can be an affordable tropical getaway.

Now, let's talk about the curiosity we mentioned at the beginning. Saint Lucia was named by the French in honor of Saint Lucia of Syracuse. It is the only country in the world named in honor of a woman, making this destination even more special!
