Agro-tourism, without a doubt, provides a new opportunity as well as a new challenge to the Caribbean region. It can succeed only if a strategic approach is taken. Partnerships and good team work by the regional and national tourism organizations, the public and private sectors, specialists and academics involved in agriculture and tourism, is a prerequisite for optimizing the potential benefits from the agro-tourism subsector in the Caribbean. The role of key players in this new development should be focused on creating awareness and a vision for agro-tourism in the Caribbean as the preliminary step forward. These agencies should then join hands in preparing a strategic master plan for agro-tourism in the Caribbean with inputs from potential consumers, tour operators, travel agents, airlines, ground transportation providers, investors, managers, researchers, consultants and above all from local communitiesSubject(s): CARIBE | TURISMO | AGRICULTURA | INDUSTRIA | | | | | CARAIBES | TOURISME | AGRICULTURE | INDUSTRIE
