Grenada and Airbnb signed tourism partnership

Grenada West Indies and Airbnb have signed an agreement of understanding to formalize a partnership with the global home-sharing company. Clarice Modeste-Curwen of Grenada’s Minister of Tourism signed on behalf of the government in a conference held during the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s annual Caribbean Week in New York City.

The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding is part of ongoing efforts by the Grenada Tourism Authority to maximize exposure of the tri-island destination of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique, and will act as a framework for the collaboration between the Grenada Travel Advisory and Airbnb, designed to further enhance and position the Spice Island of the Caribbean as top-of-mind with target consumers.

“Solidifying a strategic alliance with a global entity like Airbnb demonstrates our commitment to strengthening Grenada’s tourism sector by tapping into new segments of the industry and providing Grenadians with opportunities that stimulate our island’s economic growth,”

“We recognize that in order for the destination to remain competitive we must grow and evolve with the ever-changing travel landscape,” she said.
Modeste-Curwen said.

“We are proud to partner with Grenada and help create genuine experiences for travelers and new economic opportunities for Grenadians while highlighting local culture and heritage,” said Shawn Sullivan, Airbnb’s Public Policy lead for Central America and the Caribbean.

In recent months, Airbnb has reached a series of partnerships with countries in the Caribbean, especially the recent signing of an agreement with the Caribbean Tourism Organization, which sets up further potential for boosting tourism in the region. Airbnb has more than 400 active listings across the island of Grenada WI and typical host annual earnings are around $2,200 us dollars, the tourism authority said.

The tri-island destination of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique is located in the southernmost region of the Caribbean near St. Vincent and the Grenadines off the coast of Venezuela. The Pure Grenada experience beckons visitors to its exquisite array of white sand beaches, breathtaking waterfalls, hiking trails, and more than 30 unforgettable diving sites, including the largest shipwreck ever in the Caribbean ‘Bianca C’ and the World’s First Underwater Sculpture Park.
