The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority launches 'Seven Minutes in St Lucia' virtual escapes

The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) invites travellers to virtually escape to Saint Lucia, with a social media series that airs on Instagram.

While we can't travel, we can escape in the comfort of our homes, as The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority encourages virtual travellers to discover yoga and meditation at the Pitons, make a tropical cocktail with locally-produced, Chairman's Reserve Rum, or cook an authentic Saint Lucian dish.

UK & Europe SLTA director, Patricia Charlery-Leon, said: “It's heartening to see how people have pulled together as we all face such difficult challenges. We wanted to offer a little escape with some of the things that inspire people about our island, until the time is right to welcome people again.”

The weekly series kicks off with the upcoming live stream schedule:

St Lucian Flavour Cooking Class: March 31, 3:00pm – 3:07pm GMT

Live DJ Party: April 2, 9:00pm – 10:00pm GMT

Beachy, Breezy Meditation: April 7, 3:00pm – 3:07pm GMT

To participate, follow @TravelSaintLucia on Instagram to watch the live broadcasts. At the designated time, go to the @TravelSaintLucia Instagram and click the “story” in the top left corner to join live. Participants are encouraged to submit live comments to make the events even more interactive.
