About half of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association hotels in the Caribbean have reopened, with an additional 20% to open by September.

Hotels are slowly reopening in the hardest-hit areas of the Caribbean and South Florida after the devastating hurricanes in September 2017. Roughly half of the hotels in Puerto Rico, St. Martin and the U.S. Virgin Islands are welcoming tourists again. Another 22 are slated for opening by December. New hotel developments in Puerto Rico include a JW Marriott and the Four Seasons Cayo Largo. Approximately 80% of all Florida Keys properties are back up and running.

Additional details about affected Caribbean and Florida hotels:

  • Infrastructure improvements continue on trails, boardwalks and marinas
  • Some hotels continue to house relief workers
  • More than 120 Puerto Rico Tourism Company-endorsed hotels are open
