#Abaco, September 10, 2018 – Bahamas – Due to a significant growth in tourism arrivals, the number of resorts and restaurants in the Abacos which are normally closed during the off-season has drastically decreased. According to Wynsome Ferguson, Manager of the Abaco Tourist Office, all hotels in Marsh Harbour and Hope Town will remain open during the period of August – November, which is typically off-season on the island.
Ferguson said: “Hotel closures for the fall in Abaco are at a minimal this year. The hotels in Hope Town and Marsh Harbour will remain open and this is because Abaco has been fortunate enough to not have been impacted by any major hurricanes in the past four to five years. The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation (BMOTA) recently reported that The Bahamas experienced significant increase in foreign air arrivals which is up 2.8 per cent.
