What Tourists Dislike

What Tourists Dislike | Pollution Threatens Caribbean | Cruise Ship Pollution

You would think that a country, that depends on tourism, does everything to make tourists feel good and come back. Not so in the Caribbean. Most Caribbean countries expect tourists to take a taxi from the airport to the resort and stay there during their holidays. Walking along the streets is very often disgusting due to lots of rubbish. Uninhabeted parts of the island are often used as wild dumps. Not to talk about sewage pipes at tourist beaches. Many tourists save their money for a trip to "PARADISE" and get disappointed. Of course they choose a different destination for their next holiday. 

This is what tourists want: #1 safety (no risks); #2 cleanliness (paradise-like environment); #3 relaxation (no hassles, etc.).
