Take a Virtual Tour of Saint Lucia Without Leaving the House

It’d be nice if you could relax and get away from everyday life for just a few minutes. The good news is that virtual escapes are now possible, and you can stay seated on your couch at home while still being able to experience them. The stunning island of Saint Lucia is where you can virtually jet off to.

Take a Virtual Escape in Saint Lucia

The virtual escape is possible through the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority as they are inviting everyone interested to a 7-minute mini-series. This series airs on Instagram, twice a week for people to tune into.

The tourism authority realizes that not many people can travel, which is why they are offering virtual travel to Saint Lucia for those who are interested in doing so from the comfort of their own homes. The escapes range from making tropical cocktails using locally-produced Chairman’s Reserve Rum to discovering yoga and meditation, and even cooking authentic dishes with Chef Shorne Benjamin.

According to the tourism authority, the goal of the mini-series is to virtually share the Saint Lucian culture and its natural beauty with those that are interested without them having to leave their homes. They also aim to keep in touch with and encourage future visitors.

The Instagram Program Lineup

Instagram users can join the program every Tuesday and Thursday for #7MinutesInSaintLucia.
So far, the program was occurring on three separate days and the users were offered:

  • Saint Lucian Flavor Cooking Class – A virtual cooking class hosted by Chef Shorne Benjamin, an international Saint Lucian chef, who was cooking with some local flavors.
