Airbnb: Long-Term Stays Growing in the Caribbean

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 3, 2022

Demand for long-term stays continues to grow in the Caribbean, according to a new report from Airbnb. 

Recent Airbnb data showed that nights booked for long-term stays by travelers in the Caribbean almost doubled between 2019 and 2021. 

Several destinations are seeing particularly strong growth in that regard. 

Reservations for stays of 28 days or more in the British Virgin Islands have more than doubled, as have similar stays in Guyana. 

St Maarten and Antigua and Barbuda have doubled their bookings for longer stays, while Dominica has also seen a doubling of long-stay bookings. 

Airbnb has been pushing a remote work program in the Caribbean called “Work from the Caribbean.”

“Airbnb is proud to have partnered again with the Caribbean Tourism Organization to continue  promoting a variety of  destinations in the Caribbean so people can work and travel within. The rise of digital nomads and the development of long-stay programs across the region continue to help in the recovery of tourism and in creating this campaign we hope to inspire travelers to stay in this wonderful region for a longer period of time,” said Carlos Muñoz, Airbnb Policy Manager for Central America and the Caribbean.

Most remote workers have been coming from the US, Canada, France and the UK, according to Airbnb.

“The latest data released by Airbnb validates the hard work that destinations in the region have done to promote their countries as first class options for digital nomads,” explained Faye Gill, the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s Director for Membership Services. “Countries quickly identified the niche and built the products, and services, to support growth in the most challenging of circumstances.  Thanks to our partner, Airbnb, we are pleased to be able to provide a platform for our members across the Caribbean to build on the success that they have been able to achieve.
