Experience it all at Windjammer Landing, St. Lucia

Family vacations don’t have to be boring. Traveling with toddler can be as adventurous as traveling solo if you’re creative and use the resources available. Athena and I just returned from the luxurious Windjammer Landing in St. Lucia where we were able to visit a waterfall, ride a catamaran, snorkel in the ocean, swim in the pool, kayak the bay, do the limbo, and run along the beach. I also rode “Big Mama”, toured the bay and snorkeled, played on the ocean trampoline, and water-skied while Athena enjoyed the Jacquot Fun Club, made her own tie dye t-shirt, danced, sang, and played with other kids. I was able to manage all of this in one week as a solo parent with a toddler; Windjammer Landing makes it possible for anyone.
