The Caribbean is one of the premier tourist destinations in the world. Changes in the travel patterns, markets and traveller motivations have brought considerable growth and dramatic change to the region's tourism sector. Persistent turbulence in other economic sectors in the region has served to enhance the relative importance of tourism as an economic development strategy. Tourism is therefore increasingly becoming crucial for the economic survival of local economies in most, if not all, island microstates in the region. The book is divided into three parts. The first gives an overview of existing tourism trends in the region. Part Two addresses tourism development issues, including sustainability, ecotourism, heritage tourism, cruise tourism, community participation, management implications for tourism businesses, resorts, regional organizational structures and linkages with agriculture. Part three considers future trends, including an assessment of recent world events and their impacts on tourism in the region, and future trends in terms of airlift, economic sustainability and markets. Tourism in the Caribbean brings together a high calibre team of international researchers to provide an up-to-date assessment of the scope of tourism and the nature of tourism development in the Caribbean. It is a valuable resource for students of Tourism and Caribbean Studies, as well as governments, and national and regional tourism offices.
