First, the good news. Nearly 70 percent of the islands in the Caribbean were not affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The bad news is that 30 percent were, some very badly, and tourism is way down in the entire region.
The object of this post is twofold. To encourage you to make a donation to help these islands recover, because for many of them, tourism fuels their entire economies. Aid is always too slow, and they need help now. If you have a favorite destination, you can help by donating directly to that place. There is a link below to a page that will help you do that. And, obviously, to encourage you to choose the Caribbean as a destination.
This site, Caribbean Travel Update, curates the latest news and ways to help if you want to.
