Saint Lucia continues to welcome travelers, couples, families and friends with open arms. Now is the perfect time to plan that island vacation you pretended you were on in the backyard this summer.

 

See what all the fuss is about with Saint Lucia Tourism Authority’s new video encouraging guests to flock back to the island’s shores. The second video in the “She is Saint Lucia … Let Her Inspire You” series showcases the destination’s many COVID-certified experiences and why Saint Lucia was designated with “No Travel Health Notice: COVID-19 Risk is Very Low” by the Centers for Disease Control. The island currently boasts the lowest COVID-19 rates in the Caribbean, with no active cases — precisely what travel-starved families want to hear.

What’s a COVID-certified activity? In Saint Lucia, this means travelers can confidently and safely explore many of the must-visit locales and try all the must-do activities the destination is famous for, including hitting the trails with Atlantic Shores Riding Stables; visiting Balenbouche Estate (pending an official reopening date); exploring Diamond Waterfalls and Botanical Gardens; hiking the Gros Piton Trail; zip lining with Rainforest Adventures; visiting the Pigeon Island National Landmark; enjoying the mud baths and hot springs of Sulphur Springs; hopping on the open water with a boat rental or other water-based activities; trekking Toraille Falls in December; and much more.

 

“We have been heartened and humbled with the positive response to reopening our borders again to visitors. To date, we have welcomed more than 6,000 holidaymakers, who have been kept safe and had a wonderful time. Our first video had a message of reassurance. Now it’s time to build on that and inspire travelers by reminding them of the unique experiences that our beautiful island has to offer once more. We continue to diligently work to support our local citizens and our tourism partners and look forward to the season ahead,” said Dominic Fedee, The Honorable Minister of Tourism.
