ST. LUCIA—During a recent interview, Allen Chastanet, prime minister of tourism for St. Lucia, told Travel Agent that the government has approved the island's first casino. The 20,000-square-foot property will be built near the entrance of Pigeon Island National Park in Castries. Chastanet says the casino will be affiliated with Divi Resorts. This will end a nearly seven-year battle to get a casino in St. Lucia.
