The Tourism industry is seen as the linchpin that holds the majority of the economies of the Caribbean together. In Contemporary Caribbean Tourism, authors Roberts, Best and Cameron, provide a comprehensive, contemporary resource for students and practitioners alike.

Spanning the breadth of issues from accommodation and transportation; environmental and economic impacts; Cultural, Sport, Health and Wellness, and Adventure Tourism; to disaster management and preparedness, this book discusses all of the elements essential to the long-term development and sustainability of the region’s most valuable source of income. Cutting across the Dutch, English, Spanish and French Caribbean, the history and issues of tourism in the Caribbean are presented in a cohesive and easy to grasp manner, with practical examples, case studies and references from all aspects of the business of tourism.

Structured to provide an understanding and analysis of the importance of tourism to the Caribbean, Contemporary Caribbean Tourism stands as a foundational text addressing all of the contemporary realities of Caribbean tourism. The book is divided into five key sections with chapters which each feature learning outcomes, summaries and key terms as well as discussion questions and exercises. Copiously illustrated with tables, figures, images and cases, each chapter is rounded out with references for further reading.
