ISLAND INFO SOME WORDS OF HISTORY POPULATION DIVERSITY OF THE ISLAND CURRENCY BUSINESS HOURS CUSTOMS & DUTIES CAR RENTAL NUISANCE & DANGERS SOME WORDS OF HISTORY The historians are not sure when it comes to the facts concerning St.Lucia’s discovery, but it was the Spanish who certainly discovered the island around 1500 in connection with Columbus‘ discovery voyages. The first inhabitants on the island were the "Amerindians", indian tribes who came up from South America in their canoes starting probably around 1000 B.C. Around the time of the discoveries the tribe of the "Caribs", a rather warlike tribe was established in St.Lucia as well as on the other islands around. All indian natives were sooner or later wiped out by the Europeans. From the middle of the 17thcentury until the beginning of the 19thcentury St.Lucia was thrown like a ping-pong ball between colonial powers. Over a period of 150 years St.Lucia changed hands at least 14 times between the French and the British and was finally ceded to Britain in 1814. But the French were the ones, who had a much bigger influence on the island, as they kept their domination here over much longer periods. Creole ("Kweyol") or Patois, a spoken language developped from french basics, is the native language of St.Lucian people, while English became the official language on the island in the 19th century. The "Kweyol" language started to develop when the French established their sugar cane plantations and had to find a way to communicate with the work force of West African slaves. Most names of towns and villages, beaches and baies are french and also the majority of family names are originally french names. St.Lucia became an independent, democratic state in 1979 and is a member of the British Commonwealth. Head of the country is the prime minister, elected for a period of five years. POPULATION St.Lucia has a population of about 170,000 people. In St.Lucia you will find no descendants of the native Amerindians any more. The great majority (85%) of the population are of pure African ancestry, descendents of the former slaves brought from West Africa to the Caribbean and forced to work on the sugar cane plantations. Around 10% of the population are a mixture of African, British, French and East Indian ancestry, while about 4% are pure East Indian descendants. Their ancestors came to St.Lucia in the second half of the 19thcentury to work as indentured labourers on the plantations after slavery was abolished. Only 1% of the population are descendants from the former white plantation owners. DIVERSITY OF THE ISLAND The Caribbean reveals so many different faces. Each island is different and special, according to history, economical development, size, beaches, nature and culture. St.Lucia's North is the centre of tourism, you'll find most of the island's major hotels and popular restaurants north of the capital Castries, especially around Rodney Bay. In Castries town the local, colourful market and the cathedral are always worth a visit. Soufriere in the south/west offers some fine and exquisit hotels, the most scenic landscape, rainforest, lush vegetation & natural attractions such as the Pitons, botanical gardens, waterfalls, the sulphur springs and is therefore the most popular spot for excursions. The South of the island, where the international airport is located, has little touristic development so far, one major hotel, a few small hotels and one of the longest stretch of white sand beach on the island. The more windy south is the perfect spot for wind- and kite-surfing on the island. One of the the most beautiful rainforest trails is closeby. Along the East Coast touristic accommodations are quite rare. The landscape along the Atlantic coast is very savage with spectacular look outs and home of the Frigate Island Nature Reserve. The rainforest is just one step away. There are also some fine and secluded beaches to discover in the North-East, however the access can be sometimes rather difficult. CURRENCY St.Lucia operates with the EC $ (Eastern Caribbean Dollar), which has a constant value in relation to the US $. At the market, street- or beach vendors, certain shops and restaurants the exchange rate is 2.5 EC for 1 US, while at the banks it’s a little higher. US Dollars are everywhere accepted and welcome. Euros are also very often accepted, but sometimes calculated as the US Dollar, while the Euro exchange rate at the banks is higher (according to the daily rate). BUSINESS HOURS Banks are open Monday-Thursday 8am-3pm, Friday 8am-5pm; a few branches in Rodney Bay are also open Saturday 9am-noon. Post offices are open weekdays 8:30am-4:30pm. Most stores are open weekdays 8:30-12:30 and 1:30-4:30, Saturday 8-12:30; Gablewoods Mall shops are open Monday-Saturday 9-7; Pointe Seraphine shops (Duty free) are open weekdays 9-5, Saturday 9-2. Stores, with rare exceptions (such as hotel gift shops), and banks are closed on Sunday. CUSTOMS & DUTIES These rules generally apply throughout the Caribbean: you're limited to bringing in 2 liters of alcohol, 2 cartons of cigarettes, and a reasonable amount of duty... Similar Website
