CASTRIES, St. Lucia (June 5, 2007) – Starting June 1, 2007, the island of St. Lucia is offering strong savings and Caribbean-Americans are being encouraged to cash in on them.

The “St. Lucia Super Summer Savers” promotion plan, an incentive of the St. Lucia Tourist Board, gives all visitors, including returning Caribbean nationals, an opportunity to enjoy the beauty and splendor of St. Lucia
while saving with huge discounts.

Maria Fowell, the island's Director of Tourism, laid out the plan as a red carpet welcome to this population segment who are “critical contributors” to travel and tourism in St. Lucia
, especially in the slower summer season. "We place tremendous value on the Caribbean-American community in North America, both as travellers as well as ambassadors,” she said. “This new promotion will put cash back into the pockets of our nationals who are coming home for Carnival or simply to relax over the summer holidays and in the Fall season.”

All visitors are eligible to receive discounts up to 40 percent off at participating hotels and up to 25 percent off tours, attractions, restaurants, golfing, spa and car rentals, while attractive incentives are being offered to the travel agent community. “While we are offering these incentives to all visitors, we are acutely aware that our overseas Caribbean
nationals patronize our destination during the summer period to take part in Carnival celebrations, so the timing is perfect," said Fowell, who added that the offers are valid until November 30, 2007.

"We're excited about this promotion and are encouraged by the widespread support we have received from St. Lucia’s business community and the initial interest expressed by the travelling public,” Fowell noted, adding that Senator Allen Chastanet, St. Lucia's Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, will share more news about the promotion and the importance of the Caribbean Diaspora during town hall meetings slated for Caribbean Week in New York in June.

Culturally rich offerings include the bustling marketplace in the capital of Castries, a variety of Heritage Tourism sites, quaint fishing villages along the coastline, the annual St. Lucia Jazz festival in May, and in November, the second Food and Rum Festival.
