St Lucia is an investment property hotspot in the Caribbean

Due to the volcanic nature of the terrain, land with development potential is limited; meaning the island will never be over developed.

Consequently, strong prices are expected and highly in-demand properties are likely to appreciate even during the construction phase, making this an excellent and unusual opportunity to get into Caribbean investment property.

St. Lucia is quickly growing in popularity and is one of the most accessible Caribbean islands. Direct service is available from the UK, Germany as well as Canada and the US.

The government of this island nation has made tourism the key to their economic expansion; between 2002 and 2007, the number of visitors jumped almost 20% and The World Bank puts the island on its list of top 30 countries in which to invest, due to rapidly increasing property values and continuing growth of tourism.
