Things To Do in St. Lucia During Carnival Package 2013

St. Lucia tours, activities, and top attractions.
Rainforest tour in St Lucia combines zip lining,
hiking and guided aerial tram adventure.
We love carnival in St. Lucia. Unlike other carnivals that are based on the pre-Lenten religious calendar and run for only a few days, the 2013 St. Lucia Carnival schedule kicks off Sunday May 26th and runs through to Friday August 16th with a series of parades, dances all to the beats of typical local soca or calypso style music. Carnival finishes up with a final 4 day festival weekend with Soca and Calypso finals and the Parade of Bands July 11th through July 15th. Learn more at LucianCarnival.com or StLucia.org

St. Lucia is the place for the perfect summer soca sun soak and you will need some rainforest relaxation! After seeing the brightly plumed carnival costumes, come out to our park and see a natural parade.

A professional naturalist guide will accompany you along the rainforest trails, pointing out some of the secrets of the rainforest that surrounds you.

Panama Holidays - Top Things to do in Panama

November is holiday month in Panama!

Henry Josephs of Panama Excursions advises that anyone looking for things to do in Panama should look to the month of November. Panama has three celebrations of independence in November – filled with activities for locals and visitors.

Panama Holidays and best day tours, shore excursions, and things to do in Panama City.
  • November 3 is Panamanian Independence Day – when Panama declared independence from Colombia via the 1903 the Hay-HerrĂ¡n Treaty. (image source)
  • November 4 honors our tri-color national flag - This flag was to reflect the political situation of the time. The blue was intended to represent the Conservative Party and the red to represent the Liberal Party. The white was intended to stand for peace and purity; the blue star stands for the purity and honesty of the life of the country; the red star represents the authority and law in the country; and together the stars stand for the new republic.
  • November 5 is Colon Day, Panama’s version of Columbus Day.
  • November 10th celebrates the "primer grito" or first shout of independence from Spain back in 1821 when, lacking modern communications, e-mail and cell phones, the City of Los Santos declared independence before the rest of the country.
  • And finally, there is November 28 when all the formal documents and legalities were concluded in Panama City.
The history is a little confusing but the pride of Panamanians and the parties are not! Henry Josephs and his team will be hard at work providing the best Panama day tours and excursions on each of the holidays – though we hope they will find a bit of time to celebrate!

Click for more information on our other panama shore excursions page, visit our adventure park page or give our office a call 1-866-759-8726!

Happy Holidays!

Vice President of Sales and Marketing
