The Caribbean Islands will soon let out a sigh of relief when travel returns to the islands. For now, there is good news to celebrate. "Travel Pulse" has named Cayman one of the safest places to travel across the entire globe.
Along with other Caribbean islands, the Cayman Islands received the "safe for travel" recommendation by Travel Pulse in its recent article called "The Safest Places to Travel in 2021." Noting safety as a priority, writer Clarke is ready to get travel back to normal, as are we all.
The list included the following Caribbean islands in the list of 18 countries.
With severe COVID-19 protocol, tourism in the islands should increase as the visitors have the peace of mind to travel. So how are they doing it?
You see, the Cayman and other Caribbean islands began early with a "hard curfew," closed businesses, shut down schools, and limited openings. This curfew did not allow for runs, walks, or even dog walks. Only essential workers were allowed outside their homes. And only supermarkets and pharmacies remained open, and just a few of them. When they say "hard curfew" in the Caribbean, they mean it.
Turning cruise ships away was a proactive measure that was certainly not popular. Since the cruises provide for a vast portion of their tourism, the decision was not easy for those cruise lines or the Caribbean people and businesses. But, the lives of the Caribbean people were their focus in the time of global pandemic and uncertainty.
Now, it seems the islands are ready to be open again with proactive protocol to limit the spread of any disease, setting an example for the rest of the world.
