Haiti Continues Strong Tourism Growth
By the Caribbean Journal staff
Haiti’s strong tourism growth continued in 2014, according to new data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
The country, which has been developing a long-dormant sector in recent years, received a total of 465,174 stayover visitors last year, according to the CTO.
That represented a 10.8 percent improvement over the previous year.
The country’s growth was particularly strong in last year’s tourist season, when it showed a 24.7 percent improvement over the same period in 2013.
The country also saw a 5.2 percent improvement during the summer season.
That came after Haiti saw a 17.9 percent improvement in tourism in 2013.
Haiti’s tourist sector is set for another boost this year, when the new Haiti Marriott is slated to open in Port-au-Prince.
