The Caribbean Travel Awards 2024

It’s hard to believe it has been a decade since the inaugural edition of the Caribbean Travel Awards, the first true regional celebration of travel and tourism in the Caribbean.

In 10 years, the Caribbean tourism industry has dramatically changed, with years of growth and rebirth interspersed with hurricanes and pandemics. But, as the world’s most resilient region always does, the Caribbean came out of all stronger and more robust.

Today, the Caribbean remains the most sought-after warm-weather destination in the world; in large part as the result of changing travel patterns resulting from the pandemic, the Caribbean is also now a true year-round destination, drawing millions to its shores, all who realize what a dynamic, vibrant and endlessly exciting part of the world this is.

This 10th edition of Caribbean Journal’s Caribbean Travel Awards celebrates the people and places contributing to the Caribbean’s astonishing success — and ensuring that it continues, from the region’s best hotels to its top tourism executives to the islands setting themselves apart in fields like food, romance, sustainability and innovation, as selected by Caribbean Journal’s editorial team, the world’s leading experts on Caribbean travel and tourism.

“The Caribbean Travel Awards is the premier celebration of excellence in Caribbean travel and tourism, and this year’s slate of winners is as vibrant as ever,” said Alexander Britell, editor and publisher of Caribbean Journal. “Congratulations to all those who work so tirelessly to solidify the Caribbean’s place as the world’s ultimate travel destination.”

Caribbean Destination of the Year: Nassau Paradise Island

Is there a more complete destination in the Caribbean? Nassau Paradise Island really does have it all, from a marvelously diverse collection of hotels (from megaresorts like Atlantis Paradise Island and Baha Mar to boutique gems like Graycliff) to a charming, buzzing historic downtown to a culinary scene that is, right now, the hottest in the whole region. That has led to surging tourism numbers to this beloved twin-island destination, a buzzing airport and the feeling that it’s only getting better.
