In 2014, Foundation for Puerto Rico (FPR) began to work on making the Visitor Economy a priority to all stakeholders in Puerto Rico. This effort began by establishing a Visitor Economy Research Unit to help guide tourism policy discussion on the Island. A series of research papers were published around various Visitor Economy topics, ranging from destination management, sharing economy, to national tourism statistics. FPR also conducted a series of events and workshops around the research and policy recommendations to promote dialogue among the various stakeholders of the tourism ecosystem.
Visitor Economy Data Portal
The Foundation for Puerto Rico’s Visitor Economy Data Portal provides access to visitor’s economic data and statistics. This tool currently consolidates more than five (5) years of periodical tourism official data publications, to provide a comprehensive view on the current state of tourism activity in Puerto Rico. It provides historical data for analysis comparison across countries and tourism indicators.
