Unaffected or slightly affected, yet open for business
Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Cayman Islands, Saba, St. Eustatius, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos, Montserrat, Jamaica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize and Cuba, are all ready to welcome you to their shores right now.
The Bahamas – although not officially “the Caribbean” (it's actually a region of its own covering some 700 islands) – is in great shape. Only a few tiny non-touristy islands were badly affected. The rest of the region is in business-as-usual mode.
Note: Trinidad and Tobago were not hit by hurricanes, but a recent oil spill might affect visitor experience.
Heavily affected with varying projected recovery times
Puerto Rico: Not recommended for tourism travel until late 2018, although the port will receive cruise ships soon.
Saint Martin: Although the airport has been open to commercial flights since Oct. 10, the tourism infrastructure will take a few months to be rebuilt. Some major resorts, such as Divi Little Bay Beach Resort, are projecting a spring, 2018, reopening.
Anguilla: Basically ready for guests and rebounding quickly, but many of the larger luxury resorts will not open until the new year. The Blowing Point Ferry Terminal will be rebuilt; for now there is a temporary structure to receive guests. Their airport is open and expanding to receive larger planes in the near future. Ferries are running from St. Maarten airport region for access from large commercial flights.
St. John: Will not be ready for guests for an indefinite time.
St. Thomas: Not ready for guests on land right now, but their cruise port will open Nov. 1.
Dominica: This was the second hit for this lush little outpost in two years. They will need much time to recover.
St. Croix: Slated for full opening by spring, 2018.
Saint-Barthélemy: Slated for full opening by spring, 2018.
British Virgin Islands: Tortola and Virgin Gorda were badly hit and are not ready to welcome guests; no estimated recovery time as yet.
