The Cayman Islands is off to a blazing start in 2018, according to preliminary numbers from the destination’s Department of Tourism.

A total of 39,185 stayover visitors came to the Cayman Islands in January, a 23.87 percent increase over January 2017.

That’s the best January in the history of the Cayman Islands, and the eight consecutive month in which the destination has seen record-breaking growth.

“Continued increases in visitation are evidence that the state of our tourism industry is strong,” said Cayman Islands Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell. “I am optimistic that if we continue this path, 2018 will be another record-breaking year for arrivals and that the Cayman Islands will benefit from economic growth that all can be proud of. I applaud the Department of Tourism and all tourism partners for their continued contributions to this vibrant industry.”
