    Interesting facts

    The Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment program is the youngest Caribbean passport program. It has been launched in 2015.
    There are 2 airports, George F.L. Charles Airport and Hewanorra International Airport. The second, larger one, regularly receives flights from the United States, Canada, Germany, the UK. The annual passenger traffic gets close to 500,000 people. There are 5 large ports in the country. In 2018, a new terminal will be opened that will receive large ocean liners and Quantum-class cruise ships that accommodate 5 thousand passengers each. This will speed up the development of the cruise sector and increase the number of tourists in Saint Lucia.

    Recently, the St Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) has signed a contract with the Spain-based solar energy company GRUPOTEC to start the construction of a 3-megawatt solar farm that will be opened in 2018. Judging by the determination of the local government to get rid of diesel-power generators and traditional energy sources, on the whole, one may safely assume it is time to start investing in alternative, renewable energy projects.
    In 2017, Saint Lucia was placed second in the Best Place to visit in the Caribbean rating, which was compiled by the US News & World Report agency.
    Saint Lucia is the destination point for the annual transatlantic regatta.
