As a member of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), Dominica joins the rest of the Caribbean in celebrating the first Caribbean Tourism Month during November.
This year the month is celebrated under the theme ‘One Sea, One Voice, One Caribbean’.
The objectives of Caribbean Tourism Month is to raise awareness among Caribbean people of the importance of tourism in the Caribbean, to enhance the profile of the Caribbean tourism sector in the marketplace, to reflect on the invaluable impact of tourism on the economic, social and cultural well being in the Caribbean, to attract positive media coverage of the Caribbean and the local tourism product and to celebrate the diversity of what the Caribbean offers.
In observance of the month, the Discover Dominica Authority, in collaboration with local organizations and youth groups will initiate activities centered on litter management, familiarization visits to tourism sites and tourism awareness programmes.
