Visitor arrivals in JamaicaVisitor arrivals to Jamaica continue to be at a record high since the beginning of 2017, and this shows that the country’s tourism sector is steadily growing.

To quote Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, “We have set the goal of 5% increase for 2017, and the Jamaica Tourist Board has not only delivered but exceeded expectations. We will remain vigilant in ensuring that the tourism sector drives growth and provide a boost to the Jamaican economy. Due to these remarkable results, we head into the winter season with great optimism.”

Due to Jamaica’s tourism boom, the island is seeing an expansion of existing hotels as well as new developments across the island, resulting in a significant increase in room numbers. Jamaica is aiming to have 15,000 additional rooms by 2021 which will continue to propel growth for the sector with an increase in both arrivals and earnings.

Jamaica’s stopover visitor arrivals are showing a nearly 10 percent increase for the summer months as compared to the previous year.
