Discover Dominica Authority reports that Staycation 2020 initiative now includes 11 properties
The Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) has reported that the Staycation 2020 initiative which encourages citizens to visit local tourism properties now includes 11 properties and 7 tour operators.
Samantha Letang, Marketing Executive at the DDA, says the Staycation initiative is annual, but was adjusted and made a focus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tourism properties have since been approved as COVID-19 visitor ready, and are offering special packages for locals.
Letang says properties have noted an increase in visits from locals.
