Head of the local tourism association, Jane van der Bol told CITN/Cayman 27 there was a rise in the number of visitors not just to Cayman, but throughout the Caribbean.

Although the United States remains the Caribbean’s largest market, accounting for more than 6% of visitors to the region, there have also been more arrivals from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

And, Tourism Councillor Joey Hew says the country needs to prepare for more tourists visiting these shores.

That’s why extra hotel space should be created, he says and “forecasts show an upswing in both stay over and cruise visitors in the coming months.”
