Unique Itineraries & Tours

Although Mother’s Day has passed, it’s not too late to pamper mom and treat her to a well-deserved vacation. There are plenty of ways to show mom how special she is, but nothing says thank you like a trip to one of the most beautiful places on earth. Flowers and candy are disposable, while memories last a lifetime.


In honor of Mother’s Day, Saint Lucia Tourism Authority launched an exclusive Mother’s Day Sweepstakes, giving you and mom a chance to win a five-day/four-night trip at Calabash Cove Resort & Spa. The winner will win a vacation for two in the resort’s Sunset Ocean View Junior Suite, breakfast and a spa treatment.


Entering is the easy part: Visit MothersDaySweepstakes.stlucia.org/140316 to register. Increase your chances of winning by sharing on social media, and liking Saint Lucia Tourism Authority and Calabash Cove Resort & Spa on their social media platforms. Doing so will give you extra points and the more points you have, the greater chance of winning.


The Sweepstakes runs through June 9, at 11:59 p.m. EST. On June 14, the winner will be announced on Travel Saint Lucia’s social media pages (@TravelSaintLucia). To enter, you must be 18 years or older and a resident of the United States or Canada.
