Yes, and the Caribbean is more religious than the UK. Just might be limitations esp shops Easter Sunday - St Lucia that day? - but I doubt you'll have a problem with taxis or with the decent selection of shops in the duty-free terminal. ............. there's no significant museums etc (? check out St Lucia's drive-in volcano, I think it's govt-run) ......... St Maarten is the only excellent shopping out of the four - and I'm guessing that's the saturday so I don't see a problem. ......... Chris
