BIG SPENDERS IN THE CARIBBEAN The Caribbean recorded a rise in visitor expenditure in 2013 when compared to 2012, with the spending rate outpacing that of visitor arrivals for the first time in three years, according to figures from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
Visitors to the Caribbean spent an estimated US$28.1 billion in 2013, up 2.3 percent over 2012. This was fuelled by the accommodation sector, which recorded a 7.5 per cent rise in room revenues. The Caribbean welcomed more than 25 million visitors last year, up from 24.6 million in 2012.
