Travel + Leisure Survey: Tourists Still Coming To Zika-Affected Caribbean

A survey by Travel + Leisure shows that most vacationers are sticking to their travel plans to Zika affected islands in the Caribbean despite advisories to do otherwise. The publication’s special projects editor Jacqueline Gifford revealed the findings at a luncheon sponsored by the magazine for regional tourism officials during CTO’s Caribbean Week in New York. Gifford said Zika is clearly on the minds of travelers and the magazine is monitoring the latest developments for the benefit of readers online and in real time. She said another survey revealed that group travel and weddings planned for the region were cancelled and rebooked in territories believed to be Zika-free. Even so, a subsequent survey by Travel + Leisure’s advisory board, which constituted 18 of the world’s top travel agents, showed clients are keeping their travel plans to Zika-affected regions.
