Zika Free

The worst thing that can happen while traveling abroad is getting sick. Every year, it seems a new virus is emerging, and in 2016, we are ‘blessed’ with the Zika Virus. This nasty virus is spreading to remote and gorgeous Caribbean islands.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keeps an up to date list of All Countries and Territories with Active Zika Virus Transmission, that are now dangerous to visit, especially for pregnant women. Looking at a map, it looks like there are no countries risk free in the Caribbean. But rest assure: there’s still some safe paradise islands in the Caribbean Sea.

Discover the last Zika free Caribbean destination!

Bermuda

I know, Bermuda isn’t located in the Caribbean Sea. But it isn’t that far, so I’ve decided to include it in this list of safe destinations, since it is. Truly isolated, Bermuda is famous for its pink sand dazzling beaches, tidy pastel cottages and the namesake ‘triangle’ sucking in hapless ships and planes. Don’t worry, you will come back from Bermuda alive and well!

Unfortunately, Bermuda is the only Caribbean destination left without Zika.

Hard to verify, but since there’s so many powdery white sand beaches, we can surely find one to be our own private paradise for a day!

Last, but not the least, Turks and Caicos are a group of 40 islands dotting their own patch of warm water just north of the Caribbean Sea and south of the Bahamas. Even if these islands are located close to Miami, the crowds haven’t taken over the pristine landscapes and friendly inhabitants.
