Saint Lucia. P.2.

mff • 4 minutes read • October 4th, 2015
Let's explore Saint Lucia outside its capital, 

Castries,

and the magic of 

Soufrière

.

It seems that everything here is like on any other Caribbean island:
Here's a rastaman:

Here are colonial houses, fruit selling stalls, and logos of workers' parties:

Bananas are grown wrapped in foil (to protect against birds and insects):

There are waterfalls, leaving sulfur salt on the rocks:

And a second rain forest:

There are endless waterscapes:
Here's 

Rodney Bay

Marina.

Marigot Bay.
There were fantastic sunsets:

Helicopters carry tourists:

This is a J6-AAM.

The capital city, Castries, is just before your eyes:

Here are some British forts:

There are beautiful small towns in cozy bays:

Every significant brand in Saint Lucia is decorated with the image of its main symbol: the Pitons mountains

And inhabitants of the magical Soufrière can watch the Pitons 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:

Everyone else needs make headway or get there by helicopter, to see the Pitons.

Local volcano is called Sulphur Springs and you can get directly to its mouth by car.

The mouth oozes vapor and bubbles with volcanic mud. It is forbidden to step on the floor because the soil is porous, which would cause you to sink into the hot water below.  

In addition to the valley of mud geysers, where you can fall through and boil in hot water, there are hidden, local villages on the slopes of the сaldera in the jungle, and it's impossible to understand how they managed to survive the twenty-four-hour and year-round smell of rotten eggs.

It is difficult to imagine a volcanic valley, available to tourists, without a spa. Not everyone immediately understands why the hot springs are needed in the tropics. The meaning of the Caribbean hot springs is so that the surface air (temperature) can cool the spring from 105°F (41°C) to 89.6°F (32°C). 

At this point, the airport sent out the last flight for the night and then closed until morning, but I do not want to leave.
