North AmericaUpdates

Caribbean tourism is sizzling right now, and the region is seeing double-digit growth over pre-pandemic levels, according to a new report from air ticketing analytics firm ForwardKeys.

The company says it is predicting “significant” growth in the Caribbean in the fourth quarter of this year, driven by destinations like the Dominican Republic, the US Virgin Islands and Curacao, among others.

The Dominican Republic is projected to see 54 percent in international arrivals in the fourth quarter, as compared to the same period in 2019.

The US Virgin Islands is projected to show 39 percent growth in international arrivals above 2019, while Curacao and Turks and Caicos are at 31 and 29 percent above  pre-pandemic totals.

That’s followed by Aruba, The Bahamas, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Puerto Rico and St Maarten to round out the region.

Diving into the numbers, several destinations are seeing growth in other areas: the US Virgin Islands, Martinique and Jamaica, for example, have seen the biggest growth in longer stays over 14 nights, with the USVI leading growth in that area at 25 percent.
