Hi, my husband and I are renting a house with friends near anse chastenet. Because we're doing kind of an independent travel option rather than resort I have a bunch of questions and could use some advice.
Could anyone recommend an internet cafe or is there any wireless access spot near soufrieres? I'm pretty sure my husband will bring his laptop. Are there any areas of soufrieres we should avoid? I think from the house it is about a 10' walk down a hill to anse chastenet resort, down anse chastenet road. I don't have alot of location info beyond that...
Is it hard to get access to AC beach if you're not staying at the resort? I read one traveller in this forum who said he was harassed by guards at the resort trying to get to the beach. Are there any recommended beaches that are easier to access than others? We prefer natural beauty & quiet rather than lots of excitement like beachside bars...but we're up for exploring different places.
Also, any advice on renting a SUV versus hiring a driver? the owner of the house has a driver she recommends, --what kind of rate should we expect to hire a driver for a day or for a full week? We were going to kind of feel out the roads on the trip from Hewanorra to the house & decide which was better for us.
Has anyone done mountain biking trips with Bike St. Lucia? Is it very advanced? The terrain looks pretty rugged and we're a bit rusty. Lastly, is it hard to get to the Jade resort, can non-guests use the spa there and is it worth visiting?
Much thanks for any and all help!
