In a world that has in so many ways been forced to stand still, St Lucia, our small, beautiful island in the Caribbean, is looking for ways to push forward.
The Corona virus has brought struggles and stress across the world, but particularly to Saint Lucia as we are so reliant on tourism and many people are unable to work while most hotels remain closed and flights are scarce.
But some of us are also looking at this as an opportunity for some much needed change.
Reaching out to the Digital Nomad community
Saint Lucia’s tourism industry has long been in need of an overhaul and we’d like to push for a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly and culturally-appreciative model.
For years, many have been calling for less focus and reliance on resource-taxing cruise ship passengers and guests in all-inclusive resorts that don’t share benefits of tourism around the island.
A new vision for tourism in Saint Lucia
Rather than using up our resources catering to visitors who stay a few hours or rarely spend money outside of their pre-booked packages, why not attract a different type of traveler?
Why not market to those who are more conscientious about the cultures and environments that they are visiting, who want to stick around and experience the true authentic life and customs the Caribbean has to offer, and to spread their spending to local businesses and villages?
Now is the perfect time to do just this, and that’s why we are reaching out to you, the global Digital Nomad community. We want to know what it is that you look for when choosing a country to live and work. What conveniences are needed to make sure you can work effectively? What kind of activities are you looking for during your leisure time?
We believe that we have so much to offer- pristine nature, gorgeous weather, friendly people, and so much else, but before welcoming you here we want to make sure everything is set up just right.
Below is a short survey that would really help us gather the information we need to create the ideal experience for you. We would be so grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill it out and share with your adventurous friends.
Thanks so much and hoping to see some of you nomads in the near future!

Hi Allison, that’s odd…I took a look and I can’t see any obvious issue…any chance you could try again?
