Tourism Recovery in the Caribbean

How You Can Participate in the Caribbean’s Tourism Recovery

As you probably know, tourism accounts for up to 90 percent of the economy in the Caribbean islands. With the global pandemic, tourism worldwide has been negatively impacted, and the Caribbean has experienced a complete lack of travel. That said, how can the residents of the Caribbean participate in tourism recovery?

Participation is Key for Tourism Recovery

As we hope for a slow down in the coronavirus outbreak in the fall of 2021, the people of the Caribbean islands are encouraged to prepare for an increase in tourism. Getting back to "life as usual," is the goal for the entire world, but few places rely on tourism so heavily as the Caribbean.

When everyone works together to assist in the tourism recovery efforts, the return of jobs, income, and island celebration can happen quicker. For this reason, we put together a list of reminders on how the people of the Caribbean can help the economy return.

  • Take Safety Precautions Seriously: Now is not the time to relax your standards of precaution. Maintain social distancing, avoid large gatherings, wear your mask, wash your hands, and use hand sanitizer until this virus is in the past.
  • Take the Fear Out of Travel: Do not participate in the spread of rumors negatively affecting the Caribbean.
  • Optimism as a Priority: Use the efforts the authorities have put in place to encourage others to work toward a brighter future.

Participating in these basic guidelines will help the spread of COVID-19 to slow and tourism to gain recovery. If everyone joins in, the news encouraging vacationers to travel again will spread.

The Caribbean Islands will again be a tourism hot spot; we must all do our part for now.
