Government of Canada Updates Advisories on Travelling to Saint Lucia
Petty crime occurs and increases with the approach of annual festivities, such as the jazz festival in May, carnival celebrations in July and during the winter holiday season. Muggings have occurred in areas frequented by tourists. Avoid showing signs of affluence, carry minimal sums of money and leave your passport and other valuables in your hotel safe.
Avoid unpopulated areas and unpatrolled beaches, especially after dark, and avoid staying in hotels or villas in isolated areas, which may have inadequate security. Check with local authorities to determine which beaches are safe.
Avoid the districts of Marchand, Broglie, St. Grass, St. Leslie Land, and Wilton Yard, located off of Chausee Road, which have high rates of crime.
