I would expect them to do the same soon as all countries have been following the same script since this corona thing started. Mexico been doing restriction free travel for some time so thatd be a good alternative if you are after a hassle free vacation.

We never made it to Tobago as hoped... :(
Maybe at Christmas/New year... :)
How are the entry requirements currently? Do they still require visitors to be fully vaccinated against Covid?
Hope everyone is enjoying their time on the island.

still the same rules no injections no entry. If you're after some tropical sunshine, coconut trees etc theres plenty of other islands with no restrictions to choose from. im just back from Sian Kaan, Punta Allen Mexico. What an absolutely incredible place

Will do. Have been as far south as Tulum. Tulum was pretty crowded, but I guess this is a major visitor attraction.
Many thanks.

Barbados has announced the ending of mask wearing and also the requirement for proof of vaccination - negative test (on arrival ?) gets you in.

I cant find it now but i recently read a report of a meeting of various agencies in the region (airlines, trade bodies etc) which called for the removal of all remaining retsrictions across the region. It read as if it were a more concerted bringing to bear of pressure.

Thanks Paul. Interesting about Barbados.
Sounds sensible to have a concerted restriction removal plan across the Caribbean region, doesn't it.

T and T travel pass lifted from June 1st in line with Barbados, and I guess the others will follow suit? Negative PCR test or antigen test still required to be presented on arrival.

visitbarbados.org is a bit contradictory in places as it states that quarantine is no longer required for non vaccinated travellers but lower down the page it states that unvaccinated passengers must still undertake testing on arrival and quarantine for 3 days before a 2nd test will release you "to fully explore"
