Diaspora tourists, or tourists from the Anguillian diaspora, are an important but often overlooked part of the Anguillian tourist industry. Diaspora tourists are more likely than other international travelers to support initiatives associated with the local culture, such as staying in locally owned accommodations, eating in local restaurants, or taking a trip to the local grocery store. By cultivating connections with the local economy in this way, diaspora tourists play a crucial role in the Anguillian tourism industry.
Besides promoting diaspora tourism, APANY believes that supporting local businesses is essential to the long-term success of our community. By investing in the future of Anguilla, we are helping create a bright future.
