Forbes   I recently spent a week in  Turks and Caicos , my first time out of the country since the pandemic hit. Like many Caribbean countries, Turks and Caicos rely  almost entirely on tourism  to power their economy, so they’re desperate for travelers to return. I’m happy to report that these beautiful beaches felt like an escape from the despair of this global pandemic, and here’s how they are keeping travelers safe.

Caribbean Star marks final flight, transfers assets to LIAT

Advocate : "THE seven-year-old Caribbean Star operated its final flight yesterday, marking a takeover by competitor LIAT, in a buyout that Chairman, Jean Holder, describes as 'one of the most significant business deals in the history of the Caribbean' . Late last month, the two carriers finalised and executed an agreement that facilitated the transfer of Caribbean Star's assets to LIAT. That asset purchase agreement did not include the remaining five aircrafts leased by Caribbean Star, which are expected to be transferred to LIAT in a separate transaction expected to coincide with today's closure of the carrier, owned by Antigua-based Texan billionaire, Sir Allen Stanford."

Dominica - really the nature isle

Antigua Sun : "As close as the islands may be in the Caribbean Basin, islanders will tell you that they have journeyed to many places all over the globe but have never been to any of the island neighbours. I cast my mind back to a trip I made to an island that is just 45 minutes away from our twin-island state. This island has provided the setting for a number of popular literature, from the classic Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys to the most recent Unburnable by Marie-Elena John, and with good reason to! The lush, vibrant nature of this isle is enough to take anyone's breath away."
