The Cayman Islands has been on a hot streak. Over the last two years, the Cayman Islands has delivered record-breaking years of growth, and over the last eight years, it has seen record air arrivals.

In 2018, just over 385,000 visitors arrived from the United States, accounting for 83 percent of the destinations’ visitation. Total arrivals for 2018 in both air and cruise visitation was 2,384,058, which is an 11.1 percent increase over the same period in 2017 (237,211 additional persons). That positive trend continued into January, when there was a year-over-year increase of 7.9 percent in air arrivals—83 percent of which came from the U.S. In addition, this January, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism logged 312,476 stayover visitors and cruise passengers. The performance increase of 21.3 percent over 2018 is the largest volume experienced for the month of January in recorded history. 

In mixed news, Cayman Airways recently added Boeing 737 Max 8s, which have been grounded globally due to two recent fatal crashes, to its fleet. While the added range, which would include flights to the U.S. West Coast and Denver, were part of the optimism for continued growth, these plans have to be put on halt for the time being. 

Nonetheless, to maintain the record start to 2019, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism has launched an all-new television, print and digital media campaign called “Dream in Cayman,” which displays the natural beauty of the islands in a surreal and whimsical way. Highlights from the campaign include such settings as the Seven Mile Beach, Crystal Caves and Stingray City, as well as lesser-known locations, including a private backyard orchid garden, both appear in the campaign.

The campaign follows a successful series of ads from 2017 that highlighted the romanticism of the island, featuring former Empire star and native Caymanian, Grace Byers and her husband. Now, the tourism board is looking to attract more than just romantic travelers.

“The Cayman Islands is more than a sun and sand destination; rather, it is a lifestyle retreat catering to travelers of all ages and interests,” says Rosa Harris, director of tourism, Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.

The ad campaign was created and produced by The Richards Group and photographed by Miss Aniela, a husband-and-wife photographer team, with support from local underwater photographer Jason Washington

Surfing the internet for the best of the colleges for a better future could be the initial step in the process of finding a campus that suits your needs. Touring those campuses is the next pivotal step that actually helps you decide your future. Miami boasts of several universities par excellence that are not only renowned for their academics and sports merit but also for their beautiful college campuses. Taking a Miami charter bus rental to explore college campuses is a good idea as it is stress-free and reliable. Here are some of the best college campuses in Miami.

With multiple schools, the University of Miami is spread across 400 acres of beautiful landscape in south Miami. The prestigious university is divided into three different campuses in Miami-Dade County. The massive Coral Gables campus houses the undergraduate schools and colleges and can be toured on any day of the week. One has to sign up for an interactive session and tour on their website which is led by a student to explore the campus. Located a few miles away from downtown, the campus offers a diverse environment and views of the mesmerizing beach waves. The university is open to self-guided tours and group tours but it requires scheduling and registering beforehand.

2. Miami Dade College
Located within a few minutes north to the University of Miami is the charming Miami Dade College. Although the university sits right in the city center, it has its own charm to add to the campus. Built on an ex-naval air base, the university is divided into eight different campuses. Students and parents can register and schedule a date to visit the campuses that are spread across the Miami Beach from North Miami to Coconut Grove in the South. The schools have a contemporary architecture complete with sprawling acres of lawn and palm trees.

3. Nova Southeastern University
Known for producing the best medical professionals, Nova Southeastern University excels in providing a captivating campus. Located in the suburban area of Fort Lauderdale, the Nova campus is impressive with lakes and beach surrounding it. Anyone who wishes to get a campus tour can schedule an appointment with the admissions council and then get a free tour by one of the student ambassadors. The buildings and courtyards are remarkable complete with a swimming pool, libraries, and healthcare centers.

4. Florida International University
Located in the suburbs of Miami-Dade County, the gorgeous campus of the Florida International University is sure to impress you. The Moorish buildings and palm trees transport one to a different environment, allowing students to focus on their academics. Owing to its location, the campus is peaceful, with lakes and fountains to provide a healthy study environment. The diversity of the student body is incredible and one can experience it in either of the two campuses by scheduling a tour.

5. Barry University
Conveniently located in Miami Shores, Barry University is one among the highest ranking universities in Florida. Though the campus is small, this private Catholic university is known for its beautiful campus. Well manicured lawns, state of the art classrooms and a multicultural student body make this university top notch. Schedule your visit to tour this friendly campus led by one of the students.

Miami as a city is vibrant and full of life. Many universities are lined along the coast surrounded by the vast oceans that provide breathtaking views from the campus. So go ahead and embark on this road trip before picking a college that’ll shape your future.

San Francisco appoints Hills Balfour to UK representative role

The San Francisco Travel Association has appointed travel representation and PR specialists, Hills Balfour, as its new UK representative office.

Following a competitive pitch process, the company was awarded the two-year contract due to its in-depth US knowledge and extensive industry experience in marketing destinations across the globe to a UK audience.

The London-based agency, which in 2018 joined forces with MMGY Global, will manage the sales, marketing and PR for the city and international airport.

Hills Balfour will be responsible for implementing an integrated tourism strategy across consumer marketing, PR, social and trade channels.

The appetite for travel to the US, and San Francisco in particular, is significant, with the UK representing the third largest overseas market for international arrivals to the US and San Francisco.

Currently, 28 per cent of overnight visitors to San Francisco originate from international markets, however those international visitors account for more than 61 per cent of all direct visitor spending.

The Hills Balfour team will therefore work closely with the in-house San Francisco Travel Association team to position San Francisco as the must-experience destination in the US by stimulating growth in market share, increasing overnight visitor numbers in order to maximise direct visitor spend as well as ensure the city attracts second and third-time visitors.

Joe D’Alessandro, president, San Francisco Travel Association, said: “San Francisco Travel Association is delighted to join forces with Hills Balfour to promote San Francisco and San Francisco International Airport to UK audiences.

“We look forward to working with the team to take the destination to the next level and ultimately increase net visitation and length of stay in our beautiful city.

“We will continue to work closely with our partner members to roll out an integrated global tourism strategy with Hills Balfour leading the charge in the UK market which is an important tourism source market for San Francisco.”
