“These arrival figures are indicative that the Turks and Caicos Islands continue to be a sought-after destination. We are indeed on pace to increase our arrivals in the coming weeks and months, welcoming all our guests to our Beautiful by Nature isles,” said Mary Lightbourne, Director of Tourism (Acting), Turks and Caicos Tourist Board.

The first quarter of 2022 has been particularly strong, she added, considering that the destination is still recovering from the two-year decline dealt to the sector by the pandemic.

“We are indeed buoyed by these figures, in particular the month of March, which is critical to our sector,” said Lightbourne. “The first quarter, especially March, is traditionally excellent for winter vacationers, and has seen a robust [change] in visitor arrivals, almost paralleling the corresponding month in 2019, which saw the best pre-COVID arrivals for the sector.”
