The tropical island of Saint Lucia has a quality of life that is rivaled by very few places in the world with a relatively low crime rate, access to modern facilities, services and infrastructure, world class restaurants and hotels. Residents have the options of living closer to the major population centres or closer to the more tranquil countryside to enjoy greener living. It takes just over an hour to travel from the north to the south of the island on a light traffic day, so no place is very far. All this from one of the most picturesque islands the Caribbean has to offer.
