Saint Lucia has welcomed the latest initiative to hit the island’s tourism industry. The Hibiscus Trolley Train will be operating out of Duty Free Pointe Seraphine, a shopping complex owned and operated by Invest Saint Lucia. Entrepreneurs Daniel Nunez and Mindy Khodra, are behind the new venture. “We hope to capture the interest of a wide range of guests from, but not limited to, the local market including schools, preschools, churches, businesses, groups, weddings, stay over tourists and the cruise visitors.”

Over the last few months, the parent company, Hibiscus Tours St. Lucia, undertook the ‘testing’ phase which entailed driving around the city circuit. A number of local drivers have been in training to operate the vehicle, which has a capacity of about seventy passengers. “We will be operating between Point Seraphine and the Castries Seaport. All organized/scheduled tours with the local market and stay over tourists will be operating mainly from Point Seraphine. The train will be a ninety-minute tour (1½ hours) around Castries and the Vigie Beach area. We are flexible to work with special requests for a modified itinerary. We also plan to do tours in the north of the island between Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island.” Other non-scheduled tours can be customized based on the routes requested by the client bearing in mind the train's capabilities.
