Caribbean tourism outperforms the rest of the world as COVID recovery continues

The region outperformed the rest of the world in the first half of this year as Caribbean tourism destinations continue their journey towards some semblance of normality as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
The announcement was made on Monday by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO).
 
CTO said based on preliminary data from member countries, international tourist arrivals to the Caribbean reached 6.6 million, representing a 12 per cent decline when compared to the same period last year.
 
It said by the end of May, arrivals were at 5.2 million, down 30.8 per cent for the corresponding period in 2020, considerably better than the global average of a 65.1 per cent decline.
