According to the edition, Caribbean hotels continue to be profitable for owners and operators due to increasing rates of travel to the region spurred by a strong U.S. economy. In 2005, Caribbean hotels averaged $111,414 per available room (PAR) and $25,541 PAR in profits. The net result was a 22.9 percent profit margin.
