Aruban Tourism … Still An Endangered Species
(Vanderbilt – ‘06)
On your mark, ready, set, “BANG”, they’re off and competing in the 2006 Caribbean Tourism 10K.
Oooops, everyone got off the line with great speed except the Aruban entry. The stakes are extremely high in this race and we notice the Island lags quite far behind it’s peers in this event. Our prayers are for a burst of insight to strike those who are in a position to do something about it.
The rest of the Caribbean is experiencing some nice tourism numbers; however, Aruba is not. They still continue to report a constant decline even after being compared to last years disastrous post “Natalee Holloway missing” tourism. When Aruba attached themselves to the three suspects in the manner in which they did, this situation was foreseeable to everyone. Everyone that is except Aruba.
