trinidad tobagoTourism traffic coming to Trinidad and Tobago after the hurricane devastation up the islands in recent weeks may help Tobago through the upcoming winter tourist season said Chris James, president of the Tobago Hoteliers and Tourism Association.



James and other THTA officials spoke about hoteliers’ predicament, especially following ferry service failures, as the JSC continued examining the seabridge.



He continued in his statement that after Hurricane Irma, THTA offered tour operators Tobago’s help to handle displaced tourist traffic. The association also helped to counteract the Caribbean’s image as an at-risk hurricane-prone area.


When Grenada was affected by Hurricane previously, THTA saw an impressive rise in the tourists figure in the following year.


THTA’s Carol Birchwood-James, who pointed out that Tobago has the safest harbour in the Caribbean, added that recent hurricanes could provide opportunities for Tobago to promote the yachting sector once it obtains marina facilities. She continued saying that Trinidad and Tobago once had a booming yacht sector.


An estimated of $250m loan facility needs to be revisited with low said THTA officials and the members of the association requested Government to market Tobago.
