According to the Caribbean Tourism Organisation’s Monthly Statistics, up until November 2018, out of the 24 destinations reporting international arrival data for 2018, growth was recorded in 15, while declines were recorded in nine.
Growth was recorded in three of the four destinations reporting arrivals for the period January to October led by Belize (16.2 percent) and followed by Grenada (9.0 percent), and the Dominican Republic (6.2 percent). Trinidad and Tobago (-5.2 percent) was the only destination registering a decline in arrivals during this time.
Fuelling the growth in arrivals was the return of several airlines to the hurricane-afflicted islands and new partnerships between some islands and major carriers.
