Curaçao Tourism Up 3.1 Percent in 2015


Curaçao tourism showed improvement in 2015, according to the latest data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

The Dutch Caribbean island reported a 3.1 percent increase in tourist arrivals, with 468,442 stayover tourists in total.

The island was led by a very strong winter in which it reported a 9.2 percent year-over-year increase in arrivals, although the island struggled in the summer, with just a 0.2 percent improvement.

The island showed particular improvement with Canadians, with a 45.5 percent increase to 18,229 tourists in 2015, while US tourism improved by 15.3 percent to 61,593.

The latter was boosted in significant part due to new flights to the destination on JetBlue.
