Tourism to St. Lucia Increases 22% in 4 Years

SAN JUAN – St. Lucia has experienced a 22 percent increase in tourist arrivals in the last four years, spurring growth in investment and job creation, the Tourism Ministry said on Wednesday.

The number of international visitors expanded from 287,000 in 2012 to nearly 350,000 last year, according to a statement from the ministry.

The United States consolidated its dominance as the largest source for tourism to St. Lucia, with the U.S. share of visitors rising from 38 percent to 44 percent over the four-year period.

St. Lucia’s other major tourism markets are the United Kingdom and the Caribbean.

“The island recorded increases in stay-over arrivals every month during the first two quarters of 2015, with the best performances being recorded in January and May,” Tourism Minister Lorne Theophilus said.

Tourists injected more than $414 million into St. Lucia’s economy during the first half of 2015.
