Trinidad and Tobago is seeing very strong growth in tourism so far in 2015, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

The twin-island republic counted 155,671 stayover arrivals in the first four months of 2015, up 10.8 percent from the same period in 2014, according to the CTO data.

That was among the highest rates of improvement in arrivals of any Caribbean destination so far in 2015.

The surge has been helped in part by expanded airlift to the island of Tobago on carriers including Virgin Atlantic.

But the biggest jump has come from new JetBlue flights to the island of Trinidad out of both New York and Fort Lauderdale; both routes launched last year.

Aruba has reported the largest tourism growth in the first part of 2015, with a 19.7 percent growth rate, followed by Cuba, Curacao, and Guyana.
