Haiti Reports Big Jump in Tourist Arrivals – Caribbean Journal


Haiti is reporting a significant increase in tourist arrivals, according to data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

The country welcomed 299,646 stopover arrivals in the first nine months of 2013, a 17.9 percent year-over-year increase compared to the same period in 2012.

The data did not include a breakdown of travelers’ geographic origin, or a business/leisure breakdown.

Those numbers do not include cruise stopovers. On the cruise tourism side, Haiti saw a 5.5 percent increase in cruise visitors from January to December, with a total of 643,634, up from a reported 609,930 in 2012. via Caribbean Journal
