St. Lucia Transportation
The majority of visitors to the island fly into Hewanorra Interational Airport (UVF) at Vieux Fort, on the southern tip of the island. However, there are two airports in Saint Lucia: the George F. L. Charles Airport and Hewanorra International Airport. Hewanorra International Airport is the larger of the two airports. George F. L. Airport, formerly named Vigie Airport, is located north of Castries, which is the capital city of St Lucia. Flights to St. Lucia land in both airports regularly.

Getting Around St. Lucia
We recommend making transportation arrangements with our tour operator. However, you can also get around the island by taxi. Taxis can be arranged by your hotel. There are also local buses available that provide a more affordable way to get around. Note that the buses are small vans that hold around ten to fourteen passengers and vary in quality.
