St Lucia Tourism Up 6.4 Percent

9 Jun

Tourism to St Lucia is on the rise, according to new numbers from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

The island received 98,219 stayover arrivals in the first three months of 2015, up 6.4 percent from the same period in 2014.

That was driven by very strong growth out of the United States and Canada; arrivals from the US market rose by 12 percent to 40,258, while Canadian stayover arrivals jumped by 13.6 percent to 20,371.

That softened the blow of a 7.7 percent drop in tourism from Europe to 26,399 arrivals in the period.

The country also saw a bounce from arrivals outside of the three major source markets, with a 13.5 percent increase in visitors from non US, Canadian or European markets.

    I tend not to drop a leave a response, however I browsed some comments on this page St
    Lucia Tourism Up 6.4 Percent | Metrocaribbean.com Blog.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it just me or does it look like some of the remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other online sites, I’d like to follow anything fresh you
    have to post. Would you list of all of all your public sites like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
