  2. St Lucia is no joke.to start when you have been driving all your life on the right side,then you come here,and all changes,its not easy.Then we have some terrible roads in design,and construction,and maintainance,specially this last item.The truth is that every turist that comes here has the right to rent a vehicle and drive were ever he thinks there is a road,at his own risk and peril.And there is nothing mutch we can do about it.Dios se apiade,de tu alma
