The countries of Central America and the Dominican Republic have demonstrated in recent months their capacity for resilience and innovation to boost the reactivation of their tourist destinations.
This has allowed them to progressively open up to international tourism, with the recently passed year-end holidays being the season that consolidated as the prelude to a prosperous 2022 in the travel industry.
According to a study conducted by ForwardKeys, a company dedicated to tracking, analyzing and anticipating travel flows worldwide, the countries of Central America and the Dominican Republic stand out as the top destinations in terms of travel intentions for the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022.
When examining the evolution of arrivals and confirmed tickets for international arrivals compared to 2019, there was a continued upward trend for travel to Ibero-America since the end of March 2021, with the Central American region standing out the most compared to other sub-regions in the hemisphere, ForwardKeys notes in its report.
The region continues to position itself as an ideal destination for tourism activities with an eye on the post-COVID-19 stage.
This is the result of a firm commitment to the adaptability of the industry through action plans and strategies to increase the sector’s capacities in the face of a very dynamic reality derived from the pandemic.
