Caribbean Travel News: An Inside View of Dominica

Caribbean Travel News: "Dominica’s tourism industry has been growing leaps and bounds in the past few years and they are really marketing themselves as an eco-destination for people who are interested in the outdoors, cultural activities, and sustainable development. And the range of activities is endless. For families there is horseback riding, whale watching, hikes to waterfalls, snorkeling, kayaking, beaches, and rivers. And for those who want a more extreme vacation there are some really outstanding and challenging hikes to places like the boiling lake (yep, it’s actually boiling), secret beaches, hidden waterfalls, and a new canyoning (think rappelling through waterfalls) company just opened up in the interior. The office of tourism just started doing “community tours” which are day-long outings that highlight local farms, culture and areas of interest in villages throughout the island."

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.

Canada’s largest carrier said a $20 fee will be charged for passengers buying economy class tickets as of Thursday for flights beginning Jan. 19, the same day that WestJet will begin levying the fee. The first checked bag remains free for both airlines.

Caribbean dreams, Del. realities

Delaware Online My family and I spent "primary week" on the rugged, verdant Caribbean island of St. Lucia. We vacationed at a beautiful bluff-top villa owned (coincidentally) by the family of Democratic State Senate candidate Dee Durham, who unfortunately lost her primary. But more about that later. Ah, St. Lucia! Clear blue waters. Spectacular sunsets. Plenty of lagoons for diving and snorkeling. Outstanding cuisine. Impeccable service. A live volcano. No TV. Perhaps most importantly, a new favorite beer: Piton, named after St. Lucia's famous "twin peaks." Just a week of sun, fun, the printed word, and family togetherness.
