Canadians to benefit from “Go Bananas” promotion

Canadian vacationers who visit the island between now and September 2013 will be able to take advantage of discount specials being offered by various local tourism service providers.

This falls under the “Go Bananas” summer programme.

Canadians who travel here will be presented with a discount card which will qualify them to receive special rebates on duty-free shopping, restaurant dining, car rental and excursions.

This is according to a St. Lucia Toursit Board press release which states that visitors could save as much as $400. Under the programme, hotels and resorts are also offering packages with free nights and up to 40 percent off room rates.

“Whether it’s snorkeling, horseback riding, visiting the world’s only drive-in volcano, or bathing in the Sulphur Springs, there is no shortage of activities on Saint Lucia,” says Nerdin St. Rose, vice present of marketing and sales for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.

“The Go-Bananas programme offers families value-added incentives to explore different parts of Saint Lucia they might not have come across otherwise,”St. Rose added.

Among the businesses on board with these promotions are The Edge and Razmataz Tandori in Rodney Bay.

The Drop Anchor, Diamonds International and Avis Rent-A-Car are also among others offering specials on their services.

  1. ok nice move to try get more visitors to SLU......jus curious why only open to Canadian visitors????


  2. I think it's a good incentive since the Canadian Government is taxing the people to death. But then again, they have free health care which is a give and take, unlike the Yanks where they live on a prayer...literally. Go Canada, go bananas 🙂
