July 5. Antigua and Barbuda was one of the first Caribbean destinations to reopen its borders for tourism when it did so back in early June 2020. Now, that decision is continuing to pay off, with tourism to the twin-island destination bouncing back and then some — with some tourism indicators eclipsing the same period in 2019, before the pandemic.
“This was until now our best June ever for USA arrivals to Antigua and Barbuda. The hard work of the tourism teams in the overseas markets to remain engaged and active during and after the pandemic has now begun to bear fruit,” said Colin C. James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.
July occupancy is now projected at 71 percent, according to the ABTA, compared to an earlier prediction of 35 percent.
