St Lucia-travel

hey folks, I have been wanting to visit St Lucia for a long time, and now that I finally have the money coming I really want to go. I’m definetly a summer guy, love just having to put on some shorts, a t-shirt and my sandals to head out and face the day. I’ve even considered moving there, as they have a music school in Castries-the capital. However, I’ve heard that there has been some violence re. some American tourists.Supposedly some native St Lucians broke into the cottage of 3 male tourists, beat them up, and threatened to kill them if they didn’t leave St Lucia.  I’m Canadian, so it may be different, but if anyone has any leads re. St Lucia, please let me know…..
