The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) is all set to have a good time in the coming month as Caribbean Tourism Month. The theme for this year – ‘Caribbean Comeback.’
To quote the CTO in a recent press release, “It’s a theme that illustrates that as a region, we are on our way back from the devastating impact of the pandemic. Our member countries have worked tirelessly over the past 19 months to adapt to the ever-evolving environment thrust upon us by the pandemic.”
The organization mentions that its member countries have incorporated sundry efforts as well as strict rules to make sure post-COVID competitiveness and to reconstruct that lost confidence in the sector.
CTO also mentions that it’s foreseeing positive signals, not least from flight increase, including direct service to destinations that never got such service or didn’t direct any service for many years.
In the third quarter of 2021, some CTO member destinations have shown arrival numbers that rivaled, and in some instances, they exceeded, the corresponding months in 2019.
“This by no means suggests that we are back to the pre-pandemic record numbers, and we remain fully aware of how quickly things can change with this virus,” the CTO says. “But it’s an encouraging sign that the Caribbean comeback is on.”
“Come back to the Caribbean that you love and are familiar with, to enjoy again everything that first attracted you to our region. Come back for the warm weather, the cuisine, the outdoors, the culture, the sunsets, the adventure. Come back for weddings and honeymoons, for hiking, the beach, the lakes and waterfalls, the flora and fauna and the friendly and welcoming people.”
