I hope yall aren't getting sick of this yet because I still have 4 more days to go ....
So, when we were initially planning our trip we were very close to going to Costa Rica. We've actually wanted to go to Costa Rica for several years, really for many reasons. One of those reasons is for the zip lines. So, when we found out that St. Lucia also has some excellent zip lines we were all for it. I have to admit that this is probably one of the things i was most looking forward to about this trip.
So, the day starts early with a bus ride into the rain forest. Everywhere you go in St. Lucia takes quite a while because the middle of the country is all rain forest and there really aren't many roads (if any) through the middle of the island.
We arrived in the rain forest, took a few 'before' pictures (that gear isn't terribly flattering to anyone)
