"CASTRIES, St Lucia: Air Jamaica and the island of St Lucia are currently hosting top reporters and editors from media houses in New York and New Jersey to see sustainable tourism in action.

Arriving on the island this week were Ian Williams, an experienced writer and columnist for MaximsNews; Andria Hall, former CNN news anchor and host of 'The Walk at Work' on WMCA radio; Stephanie Simon, reporter and producer at NY1 NEWS; Kenton Kirby, editor of Caribbean Life and Jude Massiah, freelance writer and Caribbean Life contributor.

The media got a first hand taste of Air Jamaica's legendary in-flight hospitality from New York's JFK Airport to Hewanorra International Airport, and are currently staying at the newly-opened, but already award-winning Coco Resorts in Rodney Bay.

During their four-day stay, the journalists will sample St Lucia's beautiful attractions by land and by sea and will visit some of the accommodations in the north and south of the island, including Almond Resorts, Bay Gardens Hotel, Village Inn, Sandals Grande St Lucian and Coconut Bay Resort thanks in part to the St Lucia Tourist Board. The newly opened Rain Forest Sky Rides is also on their schedule."

If you see/hear any reports by these folks let us know what they had to say!
