The Caribbean islands are known for their extraordinary beauty, and with their economy largely dependent on tourism, the Coronavirus pandemic has been harsh. Now, the Caribbean countries are looking to reopen from June onwards in a bid to attract tourists once more. With new rules and regulations in place, the Caribbean countries are making sure that both its citizens and its tourists are safe.
