The Island of Tourism!
Tourism is one of the biggest mainstays of Curaçao's economy. In only a 10 year period (2004-2014), Curaçao had became the island with the largest growth in tourism with a 102.3% increase. By the end of 2014, a total of 453,270 tourists had visited Curaçao with a sum of 3,996,00 days altogether. The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) and the Minister of Economic Development (Mr. Stanley Palm), had calculated the effect on the island's tourism sector to have an impact of 763.5 million guilders on Curaçao's economy. With the major changes in demand for accommodation and travel destinations, the country will be needing to keep up with taking care of the large numbers of visitors by opening new businesses and services,
