Many Caribbean Countries Now Rank "Low" on CDC's COVID-19 Travel Risk Advisory 

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently moved the Caribbean countries of Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Saint Barthélemy, and Turks and Caicos to the lowest risk COVID-19 travel advisory, Level 1 (cnn.com). Caribbean destinations already in the lowest risk category include Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Sint Eustatius, and the Cayman Islands (cnn.com). 

The CDC has four COVID-19 threat levels. The CDC advises getting vaccinated at each level, but its guidance varies by how severe the pandemic is in each country (cnn.com).  

CDC's Four-Level System  

Level 4: Very high level of COVID-19 

  • Avoid travel to this destination. 

Level 3: High level of COVID-19 

  • Make sure you are fully vaccinated before travel. 
  • Unvaccinated travelers should avoid nonessential travel to this destination. 

Level 2: Moderate level of COVID-19 

  • Make sure you are fully vaccinated before travel. 
  • Unvaccinated travelers at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 should avoid nonessential travel to this destination. If you must travel and have concerns, talk to your doctor. 

Level 1: Low level of COVID-19 

  • Make sure you are fully vaccinated before traveling to this destination. 

According to the CDC, in determining a country's risk level, the primary criteria are:  

Destinations with Populations over 100,000  

  1. Incidence rate (cumulative new cases over the past 28 days per 100,000 population) 
    1. Level 4: more than 500 cases  
    2. Level 3: 100 to 500 cases  
    3. Level 2: 50 to 99 cases 
    4. Level 1: less than 50 cases  
  2. New case trajectory (Have daily new cases increased, decreased, or remained stable over the past 28 days?) 

Destinations with Populations of 100,000 or Fewer 

  1. COVID-19 case counts (cumulative new cases over past 28 days) 
    1. Level 4: more than 500 cases  
    2. Level 3: 100 to 500 cases 
    3. Level 2: 50 to 99 cases 
    4. Level 1: less than 50 cases  
  2. New case trajectory (Have daily new cases increased, decreased, or remained stable over the past 28 days?) 

As a tourism-dependent region, Caribbean countries continue to make strides in keeping their COVID-19 numbers down and their nations as safe as possible for visitors and residents.

The Island of Puerto Rico

The treasures await those ready to travel to the “Heart and Soul of the Caribbean.” Puerto Rico is a small island located in the Greater Antilles. With its 3.2 million residents, the island is big on culture and rhythm. In the six regions of the island, visitors are sure to be captivated by the kindness of the people, the sun-kissed beaches, and all the natural wonders the island has to offer.

El Yunque National Forest is an enchanting experience for all who venture out to explore. In fact, it is the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest Service. The trails, waterfalls, and the beauty of raw nature will refresh the soul and elicit the imagination.

There are three Bioluminescent Bays located in Puerto Rico and only five in the whole world. The “glow in the dark” waters amaze and awaken the child within us all.

With just over 270 miles of sand and sun, the beaches in Puerto Rico are among the best in the Caribbean. There is something for all types of vacationers on the stunning beaches of Puerto Rico for nature hikes, water sports, and relaxation.

Join the people of Puerto Rico and experience the best Puerto Rico offers in culture and history. Catch a weekend festival celebrating the island. Or stop in for a plate full of fried plantains. Then dig into juicy, slow-roasted pork with a side of rice and beans. Top dishes include mofongo, piones, pasteles, tostones, coquito, tembleque, and arroz con gandules.

And please don’t forget to add the neighborhood of Santurce with its colorful culture, art, and food hubs. Explore Old San Juan for the 500-year-old buildings and brilliant architecture and La Parguera for outdoor adventure.
