Tourism & Leisure

Aruba’s primary industry is tourism and leisure which produces more than 80% of our GDP. Hotels, watersports, transportation, restaurants and entertainment are just some of the areas of this very important sector. But the sector faces many challenges from world events, competing destinations, changing demands of customers, new technologies, availability of alternatives like air B&B, but also ever increasing costs of doing business.

Our professionals, some with more than 25 years of experience in this sector, have an in-depth knowledge of the tourism & leisure industry on Aruba. BDO has close ties with the Aruba Hotel & Industry Association and Aruba Timeshare Association that are important advocates of the sector. That allows us to be constantly in touch with the latest issues and movements of the market, both nationally and internationally.
