A month-long campaign in observance of the Caribbean Year of Romance got underway yesterday, June 1, 2016.
The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), which declared 2016 the Year of Romance, has launched a social media campaign dubbed, 30 Days of Caribbean Romance.
Each day during the month of June, Caribbean destinations and tourism stakeholders, visitors, friends of the Caribbean and anyone interested in the region are being encouraged to share their Caribbean romance stories in pictures, videos or plain text, on social media using the hashtags #30DaysOfCaribbeanRomance and #MyCaribbeanRomance.
“People come to the Caribbean with romantic notions, they come to the Caribbean for romance, they see the Caribbean as an exotic romantic locale, people want to come to renew their vows, they’re looking for the most imaginative places in the Caribbean to get married and we are happy about that,” CTO secretary general Hugh Riley said.
“One of the most exciting things is that every member country of the Caribbean Tourism Organisation can be involved in this.”
CTO member countries and partners have been organising programmes in observance of the Year of Romance, including the Bahamas, which is trying to get into the Guinness Book of Records for the most underwater weddings. (Caribbean360.c0m)
