Strong recovery but crime may pose a threat

Arrivals to St. Lucia grew by x%, almost reaching the peak set in 2005. However, crime involving tourists could threaten growth. In April 2013, 55 passengers and two crew members from a Celebrity Cruise were robbed at gunpoint, without injuries, during a shore excursion. A violent robbery of a Canadian tourist in November 2012 resulted in his death and this was followed by the murder of a British tourist during a robbery of his yacht while it was moored in the Vieux Fort harbor in January 2014. These incidents may harm the island’s reputation among tourists.
