I love the Friday night street jump-ups in Gros Islet, St. Lucia. It’s one of the best examples of Caribbean dance, music and food festivals. If you have a chance to attend, it offers great people-watching, lively local music, street food vendors, and a wide range of crazy beverages. Here, you are in the heart of the Caribbean. If you’re thinking about a Caribbean yacht charter or just a visit to the tropical islands, below are more events that may inspire and energize your vacation planning.
