Spring is a time to travel. This is an unmatched chance to experience the beauty of a new life in different countries. In each of them, spring has its own flavor, and that you can see and appreciate it!
In the spring of dreams come true, and the rays of the sun give a great mood and a genuine emotional takeoff.

During this period, there are many holiday weekends that can be a great alternative to holidays. Inexpensive spring vacation will help you organize the tour operator “SAN TOUR”.
March is a special month in 2019. Snowy winter and cold weather are bored, I want warmth, fresh fruit, solar heat and the beach. Fans of snow rest in front of the rush to the ski resorts, to roll enough on the still good snow, but with already quite warm weather. And at the same time, almost everywhere in the world, March is a low season, when an inexpensive holiday in Saint Lucia is pleasantly pleasing to travelers who prefer budget holidays.
April is the time of the off-season, when ski resorts are no longer relevant, and beach resorts are not yet fully loaded. Hence, the relatively low cost of holidays in Saint Lucia, as well as the lack of crowds of tourists in popular destinations. At the end of April, due to the beginning of the May holiday holidays, the excitement, and with it the prices for holidays in St. Lucia, are increasing, so you should book in advance at the end of the month. A vacation in April at the beach resorts will give you comfortable air and water temperatures, as well as provide an opportunity to fully prepare for the summer season and sunny days.
