Caribbean Tourism Starting To Awaken
After a bleak 2009, the sun has started to poke out from the clouds in most Caribbean tourism destinations.
Visitors from the recession-weary U.S. were up 6.5 percent during the first four months of this year and most destinations are once again on a growth track, according to the Barbados-based Caribbean Tourism Organization.
Arrivals of tourists who stayed longer than just for day trips began picking up in the fourth quarter of 2009, but they were still down 3.6 percent for the year and hotel occupancy fell by 4.1 percent.
Alas, the Bahamas does not appear to be on the rebound list.
