CARIBBEAN BUSINESS: Top Two Destinations For Airbnb Are: St. Thomas and San Juan

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — It is an understatement to say that the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico were hit hard by hurricanes last year.

But the Emerald Isle and America’s Paradise have made dramatic progress since the setbacks presented by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017.

Airbnb, a marketplace for home rentals, says tourists are visiting the Caribbean again and bookings are up year after year.

St. Thomas is the top Caribbean destination on Airbnb, with a 600 percent increase in bookings over last year.

Airbnb has a number of listings in the region from cottages to beachfront villas.
