A post-Irma update on Caribbean islands

A post-Irma update on Caribbean islands

All is fine for islands as Anguilla, Antigua, The Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. The airports, ports, hotels and restaurants are open for tourists. Cleanup efforts are taking place at parks and beaches.

However, for some of other Caribbean islands, they are not all ready for guests. See the list below:

Barbuda: Massive damage to homes (90 percent), hotels and tourism infrastructure.

British Virgin Islands: Widespread damage on Tortola and Virgin Gorda, which has ordered a 6 a.m.-to-9 p.m. curfew.

Cuba: Power is returning in many areas of the island. Some flooding in Havana, including the neighborhoods of Vedado and Centro Habana, but water is receding. Destinations such as Vinales, Soroa, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa are operating as normal, though some excursions, such as hikes to waterfalls, may remain closed for a few more days.

St. Barts: Saint-Jean Airport and the port are open, and the 25 Quarter restaurant and bar is serving cocktails. The star-studded Eden Roc is delaying its usual October reopening, due to damage.

St. Martin: Extensive destruction.

Turks and Caicos: The Providenciales airport has resumed flights. Several of the island’s top resorts, such as the Sands at Grace Bay and the Shore Club, plan to reopen by the end of the month. Cruise ships are returning to the port on Grand Turk Island. South Caicos Island suffered significant damage.

U.S. Virgin Islands: St. Croix, which reopened its airport last week, avoided serious damage, but its sister islands weren’t so lucky. The U.S. Virgin Islands’ tourism office is “requesting the postponement of all scheduled visits to St. Thomas and St. John.” All hotels on St. Thomas and St. John are closed through Sept. 30
