Dominica is looking to the Caribbean to boost its tourist numbers with a new campaign launched in time for summer 2017.
These numbers demonstrate the importance of the tourism sector in the economy of the country, but it also shows the dependency the country has on this industry.
Cuban tourist group Gaviota will widen its hotel net in Varadero Beach -the biggest resort of Cuba- now with 14 installations and almost 9,600 rooms with high quality.
Tourist arrivals in Dominican Republic climbed “a historic height” of 6.7% from January to May, the Central Bank revealed Monday.
When President Barack Obama eased restrictions on travel to Cuba in January 2015, American travelers, tour operators and airlines lost no time. Curious Americans flooded the island’s colonial cities and tobacco-growing plains; Airbnb added thousands of Cuban homes to its offerings; and a handful of American airlines began direct flights to the island.
It’s official: Caribbean received 8.7 million international tourist arrivals in the first quarter of 2017
This is 150 thousand more than in the same period of 2016, a 1.8 per cent increase, said the Caribbean Tourism Association.
