Bloomberg Lists Jamaica as Must-See Destination for 2020

KINGSTON, Jamaica; January 07, 2020:  Jamaica has been featured as one of 24 destinations to visit in 2020 by American media-company Blooomberg LP.

The list was composed by a network of in-the-know editors and global correspondents and displays what they describe as “inspiring spots that will be particularly enticing this coming year.”

“Jamaica is proud to be included in Bloomberg’s ‘Where to Go in 2020’ list. We have a lot to offer our guests and are humbled to have been considered among so many other exotic destinations,” said Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett.

The listed destinations, which include Antigua, Montenegro, Northern Italy and Ionian Islands, describe key events happening in the destinations and their general appeal. It also includes interactive graphs, which show week-by-week hotel pricing data from Google and Intel from trusted travel experts. 

The site predicts that there will be a growth in arrivals to the island in April, following the premier of No Time to Die, Daniel Craig’s last James Bond movie, which was filmed partially in Port Antonio. They recommend that Bond fans visit key areas affiliated with the franchise such as Geejam Hotel and Half Moon Hotel, which is set to open a new 57-room resort called Eclipse, in March 2020.

Visitors, who may not have an interest in the Bond franchise, were also encouraged to visit for great weather in May, November and December. 

April was also listed as a great month to visit to participate in Carnival-related activities.
