Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Finally, Dominica’s Tourism industry is showing some signs of increase. Recently the Minister for Tourism, Industry and Private Sector Relations, Yvor Nassief held a press conference to report the increase tourist arrivals in 2006 compared to 2005. The increase in tourist arrivals in 2006 compared to 2005. In 2006, there were 84,041 arrivals compared to 79,257 in 2005, a 6 % increase.

According to Nassief, there is a greater mix of people coming to Dominica, with more people coming to the destination for leisure and typically would stay for a week compared to those who come for business and stay typically, for about 2-3 days.

With properties such as 3-Rivers, Jungle Bay and Rosalie Bay now well established, Mr. Nassief said: “What we now see is clusters developing. We are now getting critical mass so our farmers can produce and new restaurants, shops and local communities can benefit�?.

I must say that I’m extremely impressed 😯 with the success with Tourism marketing campaign adding banners on National Geographic and Lonely Planet. They have been sending high level of traffic to discoverdominica dot com.
