US Virgin Islands Tourism Is Booming

It’s been one of the biggest success stories in Caribbean tourism since the onset of the pandemic: the US Virgin Islands, which expertly navigated the uncertain waters of the pandemic and came out with record-breaking numbers. 

Indeed, from June 2021 to May 2022, the US Virgin Islands had the highest hotel occupancy in the Caribbean, with a 72.5 percent number, according to data from STR. 

The USVI also led the region in average daily rate at $637 and revenue per available room, $461.61, during the same period. 

And the numbers keep getting even better. 

In a sizzling start to 2022, first-quarter visitor arrivals surged 153 percent compared to the same period in 2021, with a total of 452,764 visitors, according to Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte. 

The USVI also saw a rapid increase in new airlift during the pandemic; Transportation Security Administration data showed that the USVI was the fastest-growing location for total airlift capacity in the Americas from 2019 to 2021.
