“It’s Better in the Bahamas.” You’ve probably heard this over the years and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation is doing more to bring in more visitors and it’s working.
In a Nutshell: Tourism is on the rise in the Bahamas and they’ve shown a 10.2% increase with much of it from the U.S., and an increase of over 29% from Canada. They’ve implemented new tracking tools to monitor increasing arrivals, resorts are showing high occupancy levels, and they anticipate a steady growth moving forward. I think we’ll all be seeing more advertising to return to the Bahamas. Reports show that this turnaround in tourism began just under a year ago so this growth is good news for the Islands of the Bahamas.
