The view from the Cliff at Cap.
On the opposite side of St. Lucia from Castries, the capital, up some bumpy roads, sits the tucked-away paradise of Cap Maison. Located in the hills and perched on a ledge above the azure Caribbean, this luxury boutique hotel is a lovely retreat; and its casual yet elegant indoor/outdoor restaurant, the Cliff at Cap, is a tropical find.

Thanks to a new crop of ultra-premium tequilas, this complex spirit no longer wears the frat-boy clothes of yore.

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
