Report: Spike in UK Visitors Could Lead To Huge 2010 for Aruba

According to Caribbean News Digital, Aruba has now firmly established itself as one of the top 10 destinations in the Caribbean for the United Kingdom market.

According to the latest available figures, from January to September of last year, Aruba saw a 41.88-percent, year-on-year increase in visitor numbers from the U.K. (10,265 as opposed to 7,235 for the same period in 2008).

This is the first time that the island has surpassed 10,000 visitors from the U.K. in a single year. For 2010, The Saltmarsh Partnership, the Aruba Tourism Authority’s long-standing public relations and marketing agency in the U.K., is implementing a major advertising campaign to further raise the profile of the island among U.K. consumers and to continue to increase the number of visitors.
