Throughout the year, several occasions stir the country; if you’re visiting, we’re sure you can’t help but feel the energy. It’s as though a shift happens, and we transition from our easy-going, Caribbean life to…we’ll we’re still easy-going but now with palpable excitement. Our tourism week is one such occasion. The island comes alive as the various industries get busy preparing creative ways to showcase the best of what they have to offer.

This September, we will once again showcase our amazing destinations, traditions, foods etc. It’s an opportunity for all to appreciate the tourism sector’s significant contributions. With a week of scheduled events from 24 to 30 September, we will join the rest of the world in celebrating World Tourism Day on 27 September 2023.

The global theme for this year’s World Tourism Day, ‘Tourism and Green Investments’, communicates the growing importance of practising eco-friendly tourism. As such, our activities preceding and following the global event will demonstrate our resolve as a country to do so.  It will be an exciting time with many activities for all to enjoy. Get ready to bask in our gloriously good weather as you head off on scenic kayak tours, hikes, snorkelling trips and more.
