Before You Go
No special vaccinations are required to visit St Lucia. If you are arriving from a yellow fever endemic country you will be required to show proof of vaccination.
St Lucia is a small country and medical facilities here are not as advanced as in the US or Europe. Travelers are therefore advised to take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers the cost of treatment in St Lucia and emergency evacuation when necessary.
In St Lucia
Availability & Cost of Healthcare
You’ll find major public medical facilities in Castries and Vieux Fort, as well as smaller clinics around the island; however, the public system is for the most part slow and inefficient. There are good private clinics in the north of the island, the best of which is the Tapion Hospital just south of Castries.
Tap water is safe to drink in St Lucia.
