Just be aware that the legal drinking age is not inforced diligently.

I remember drinking at 16 in St. Lucia. Those were the good old days. But it's definitely 18, same as Barbados.

Definitely, legally, 18. However, no one "cards" you.... If you look remotely old enough, you can get a drink. Policing their drinking will be up to you....

Not meant to be rude. I just happened to check the forum and replied right after you posted, but google could have beat me...You would be amazed how many T.A. answers could be found by typing a few words in web searches. Plus I just saw a billboard "If you lived here, you'd be home now".

Regardless the info about enforcement is more relevant. If I went to St Lucia as a teenager I would have researched any drinking opportunities on my own and had some plans even if I was under 18. In my opinion, it is better to let kids drink with their parents than sneaking out on their own, but it is probably a good idea to decide how to handle it before hand
