Saint Lucia Debuts Virtual Escapes Series
As the world adjusts to life under self-quarantine in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority has launched a new social media series inviting consumers to escape virtually for 7-minutes in Saint Lucia.
Airing twice per week on Instagram, the series aims to inspire future travellers with a virtual glimpse into the island’s life and culture.
The first installment – "Yoga At The Pitons" – kicked off on 26MAR with local yoga expert Monique Devaux surrounded by views of the world-famous Pitons in Saint Lucia.
Other themes include cocktail making classes with locally produced Chairman’s Reserve Rum, music parties, authentic Saint Lucian cooking classes and more.
“By creating the ‘7 Minutes in Saint Lucia’ social media series, our aim is to virtually share Saint Lucian culture and natural beauty in an authentic way while people stay safe at home, to keep in touch with future visitors and our valued travel agents—hopefully providing a bright spot in their days,“ said Minister of Tourism Dominic Fedee in a press release statement.
