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.).
Some own photos typical for many Caribbean countries:
Antigua: Car wrecks are dumped on many islands.
Antigua: No one cares.
Nassau, Bahamas: A rich country doesn't care.
Nassau, Bahamas: I even saw rats during the day.
Barbados: One drop of lubricating oil contaminates hundret litres
Cayman Islands: The oil is washed into the Sea.
Grenada: Old motors everywhere.
Grenada: This could be everywhere in the Caribbean.
Grenada: All rubish lands in the sea.
Jamaica: Bugs like dirty hotels, tourists don't.
Jamaica: Road damages are regrettable, but bad for tourism.
Tobago: Missing environmental consciousness.
