La Maya Beach

WILLEMSTAD – The Curaçao Association of Small-Scale Accommodations (CASHA) expresses satisfaction with what they claim to be an impressive occupancy rate of almost 86 percent for small accommodations in January.

This figure is slightly lower than last year when the occupancy rate was over 87 percent. With more than 95 members, including 53 accommodation managers who collectively offer more than a quarter of all rooms in alternative lodging options, CASHA remains a significant player in the island’s tourism sector.

While the car rental occupancy rate has dropped to 80 percent this year from almost 90 percent last January, and the activity occupancy rate stands at 60 percent, the diving sector shows significant growth. With an occupancy rate of nearly 69 percent, compared to 49 percent last year, this underscores the increasing popularity of diving activities among tourists.

However, a concern among CASHA members is the difficulty in arranging international payments and the issue of unregistered workers within the diving sector. Many diving activities are offered by organizations that do not comply with local regulations, costing legitimate diving schools clientele.

CASHA emphasizes the need for stricter enforcement of regulations within the tourism sector to provide a level playing field for all entrepreneurs in the industry.

Despite these challenges, the overall occupancy rate within the sector remains a positive sign of recovery and growth, benefiting Curaçao as a tourist destination, according to CASHA.
