Going Local on the Island of Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia’s newly immersive community approach to Tourism was recently featured in an article published by the New York Times. Writer, Shayla Martin, shared first-hand experience of her intimate encounters with the island and its people.

Experiencing the flavours, culture and warm spirit of Saint Lucia, through activities such as a creole cooking class, chocolate making tour and a visit to the Castries Market, Martin praised this “holistic approach to tourism that combines both the island’s environmental wonders and Creole culture, inviting visitors to get out and experience the community first hand”

With the St. Lucian people at the center, Martin says “the experience forever cemented a shared moment I won’t soon forget.”

Saint Lucia continues to welcome travelers to connect with our people and culture through the Community Tourism Program, as our communities hold our most authentic experiences.
