The Caribbean is one of the most important tourism markets for U.S. travelers. And during the pandemic it's been one of the few international destinations open to Americans.

In this episode, host Rebecca Tobin and two Caribbean-travel experts -- Gay Nagle Myers, a contributing editor for Travel Weekly, and writer Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon (aka JetSetSarah) -- unpack how to travel safely in the region. Among the topics: How different islands have implemented Covid-travel protocols, how to socially distance and keep yourself and residents safe, the popularity of long-term stays and whether vaccinations could be a future requirement for visitors.
