The Caribbean islands have largely been off limits to travelers for months, but Antigua and Jamaica are positioned to reopen for international travel and welcome you back to paradise on June 4 and 15 respectively.
Antigua’s tourism minister, Charles Fernandez, has reassured travelers that proper protocols are in place to ensure that the destination hits the ground running. Antigua is home to award-winning resorts, intimate guest houses, fine-dining restaurants, casual Caribbean cuisine, exhilarating tours and excursions, therapeutic spas, duty-free shopping and so much more. Visiting guests will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival at the airport.
Meanwhile, Jamaica plans to reopen its borders to international travelers on June 15 according to the Tourism Minister, Edmund Bartlett. Jamaica is well known for its beautiful white-sand beaches, mountains and natural springs. The island has great hotels, delicious food and rich culture to make for memorable experiences in paradise. Guests may be required to undergo health screening upon arrival as the country looks to reinvigorate its economy while limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
