A new National Stadium in the south of the island and a state of the art national cricket ground at Beausejour in the north have catapulted sports to a whole new level.  So if cricket is your game, you can easily "catch a lime" if you plan your vacation to fall during a one day international or a test series. See you in St. Lucia
