Despite the devastating $3.4 billion in damages from Hurricane Dorian, a large percentage of American travelers are still planning to vacation in The Bahamas in 2020Billy James, Founder of Tropikaia.
“The majority of respondents said The Bahamas’ accessibility from the U.S. is one of their top reasons for selecting it.
Even with the negative publicity related to tourist deaths in 2019, the DR remained a top 10 destination for 2020. It’s also worth noting that St. Thomas and the British Virgin Islands were close to making the top 10, gaining 3.5% and 3% of votes, respectively.Billy James, Founder of Tropikaia.
