Trip to Saint Lucia - Soufriere & Gros Islet

In May 2011 we went to Saint Lucia and had a trip of 2 parts. The first part we went more "local" and stayed in a place called Gros Islet. It is very close to Rodney Bay which is very "cruise stop" like and full of Americans and American food. We went only once and didn't return. We preferred it in Gros Islet which is just a little fishing village with very few places to stay. We stayed at the Bay Guesthouse which was lovely. Rustic but charming, very well located and with very nice owners.

The second half of the trip we stayed in Soufriere at the luxurious Fond Doux Plantation which is a working plantation where they make chocolate, well, they grow the beans, roast them, dry them etc and ship them out. It was gorgeous.
