Some are making it even easier to enter if you’ve been vaccinated.
Ah, the Caribbean. Velvety trade winds rustling the palms. Bathtub-warm water lapping at your toes. Powdery-soft sand beneath your feet. And the soul-warming sun to lift your spirits. There’s nothing quite like a Caribbean beach vacation to put the lockdown behind us. Indeed, there’s no better time to reward yourself with a relaxing tropical escape.
The good news is that the Caribbean is wide open for business and the welcome mat is out for U.S. tourists everywhere. Even the French islands of Guadeloupe, Martinique, and St. Barts will open up on June 9 when France finally lifts its U.S. visitor restrictions. But while all the islands are eager to see American tourists again, about half are making it even easier for those who have been fully vaccinated by waiving or reducing their testing and quarantine requirements.
