Escaping to the marvellous Pitons of Saint Lucia sounds pretty good right now as the world adjusts to life under self-quarantine amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) is inviting travellers to do just that, at least virtually, with 7 Minutes in Saint Lucia, a new social media series that airs twice per week on Instagram beginning Thursday, March 26th, 2020 at 11 a.m. EDT.
While travel may not be possible at this time, the series allow people to travel virtually to Saint Lucia from the comfort of their homes.
Discover yoga and meditation at the Pitons, make a tropical cocktail with locally-produced favourite Chairman’s Reserve Rum, or cook an authentic Saint Lucian dish with Chef Shorne Benjamin.
“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“, the Honourable Minister of Tourism Dominic Fedee said in a statement.
To participate, follow along as the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority broadcasts live from sunny Saint Lucia.
To make the live stream more interactive, viewers are encouraged to participate by commenting and using the hashtag #7MinutesinSaintLucia to tell the tourism board what they want to see next.
At the designated times, go to the @TravelSaintLucia Instagram page and click the top of the feed with a play button and colourful ring around it to join the live.
