The Curaçao Tourism Development Foundation renewed a significant agreement with Airbnb to promote Curaçao as a leading tourist destination and cooperate in areas of common interest.

The agreement further cements the mutual partnership to generate sustainable economic growth of Curaçao’s tourism industry through home sharing.

“Airbnb is an unrivalled global community of hosts and guests that have created a whole new way to travel and experience a destination. Curaçao is pleased to deepen our partnership with the platform and amplify our tourism product while empowering our citizens,” stated Paul Pennicook, CEO of the Curacao Tourist Board.

The home sharing community in Curaçao is a growing component of the local tourism industry and an important asset to the island’s wealth. With more than 1,900 listings throughout the country, Airbnb plays a significant role in Curaçao’s economy.

“We are pleased to continue to work with the Curaçao Tourist Board to help grow the tourism industry by promoting healthy travel that directly benefits Curaçaoans,” stated Carlos Munoz, Airbnb Campaign Manager, Public Policy and Communications for the Caribbean and Central America. “Our strong partnership aims to further shine a light on Curaçao, a world-class destination, by highlighting the rich culture and unique experiences available to visitors through home sharing.”

Airbnb democratises travel in Curaçao by making it more affordable and accessible and connecting global travellers to local communities where they can ‘live as a local’.

With its strong partnership with the CTO, Airbnb is steadily working to drive tourism to the region and expand economic opportunity by promoting authentic travel throughout the Caribbean.
