Continuing the momentum from 2017’s record tourism numbers, Pure Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, reports strong growth in overall arrivals for the first half of 2018.
The three performance indicators, cruise, stayover and yacht arrivals, contributed to an overall increase of 21.2%, when compared to the same period in 2017.
Additionally, the latest Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) statistics released this June ranked Grenada in the top three markets for increased growth in tourist arrivals from the US, Canada and Europe.
Stayover arrivals increased by 10.7% with the largest market, the US, showing a significant 18.1% increase year-to-date. Canada provided a growth of 8.56%.
Addressing the positive numbers, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) Patricia Maher said, “We are happy that Pure Grenada maintains this hot streak with double digit growth and the destination continues to be trending internationally. It is evident that all our hard work is paying off with these great results. Team Grenada will continue its efforts to ensure that the strong positive growth remains through the end of 2018.”
