If not for January, when the Omicron variant affected tourism, Aruba would have surpassed the occupancy rate of 2019, the record year for tourism in Aruba. Aruba is experiencing a significant recovery, considered one of the best in the world. The average global tourism recovery is 46%, while the average recovery rate on our side of the world is 60%.
According to the last three monthly reports from the Aruba Tourism Authority, Aruba surpassed the level of tourism in April, May, and June 2019, respectively 108%, 103%, and 103%. The final report for July 2022 is ready yet, but the expectations of tourism recovery exceed the numbers of July 2019.
According to the IMF, Aruba has a second place for the best tourism recovery globally.
