The “Gem of St. Lucia” is Soufriere, a unique destination that boasts a dazzling natural harbor, a village center, and a lush rainforest at the base of the world's only drive-through volcano.  Activities here are catered to tourists, but are varied enough that no matter your vacation style there is something to do.  You can pamper yourself with spa treatments and do some shopping, lace up your hiking boots and head into the forest and up the mountain, or book some time sailing, fishing, or scuba diving.  And that's only the start of all that this beautiful town has to offer its guests.
