These numbers were revealed by the Grenada Tourism Authority in a news release on Friday, which stated that this figure is a measure of the visitors and diaspora arriving in Grenada, prior to Carnival Monday.

Of the 13 thousand 327 stayover visitors, 10 thousand 505 were tourists and almost 3 thousand were Grenadians residing abroad.

The GTA says the 2018 Carnival Season had a phenomenal 24.9% growth in arrivals compared to 2017

This year’s growth, the news release said,s is attributed to additional airlift including 3 extra flights from LIAT, increased marketing and the global recognition of Grenada’s artistes, culture and music.
