2018 declared the year of wellness and rejuvenation in the Caribbean


2018 has been declared the year of wellness and rejuvination by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO).

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), is the region’s tourism development agency, with 28 Dutch, English, French and Spanish country members

Wellness and rejuvenation are an important part of the Caribbean tourism offering, so CTO is encouraging member countries and private sector partners to plan and organise events and activities around the theme that will appeal to consumers, travel agents and tour operators.

Hugh Riley of CTO; "For those who focus on renewing body and spirit, the options are virtually endless; from beachfront workouts and yoga retreats, to wellness resorts and spa treatment. The region’s diverse tropical landscape with mountain ranges, valleys and volcanoes, provide excellent opportunities for a variety of ages and physical abilities. Individual trekking, group hiking, health walks, fun-runs, marathons and a range of water-based health-related activities are held throughout the year in our CTO member-countries."

The 2018 Caribbean year of wellness and rejuvenation will be promoted through social media and traditional media channels and will create opportunities for travellers and holiday planners to share their experiences and ideas of how to welcome visitors to the region for wellness and rejuvenation.

Through the campaign, CTO, its member countries and private sector partners will highlight the Caribbean as the leading choice for wellness and rejuvenation.
