The fees charged by the park have gone up to $50US per person. That's about twice what we expected and we almost walked. But we were there and it's not easy to get to and it included a guide, so we choked and forked over...More

We sailed past the towering Pitons at dusk several years ago aboard a cruise ship departing Castries, Saint Lucia, and vowed to come back for a better look. On a catamaran shore excursion arranged through Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Silhouette, we sailed down the western side...More

A great day out, albeit a harder climb than expected, especially as l spent most of November in the himalayers trekking,this equated to some of those climbs. I think a little more information beforehand on the severity of it and the requirements of appropriate footwear...More

Everyone loves mountains. The pitons are two fabulous mountains rising from the sea almost gherkin shape from a certain angle. They are possibly the main attraction in St Lucia if landscapes are your thing. Well worth a boat trip to see them

Holland America cruise lines went right into the bay underneath Grand Pitons. They are very beautiful and it was well worth seeing. If you get the chance, do it!

Hi. He just happened to be who was next in line when we got there. However, I was told that you can request certain guides when you get there.
