Places like Jamaica, Barbados, Bahamas will always see a boom in Tourism, its big money, especially now when many are getting free money and dont have to work, they can pick up and go as they please, realize there is a rising in Drunk driving, mufuckers got it too good and free they are partying, as long as those places keep promoting their country abd keeping it safe they will always see that big money, but if they slip and lose that Tourism money, they can get ready for high crimes and kidnapping business like Haiti, right bow Haitians are about to be back in the same Aids Era, people are going to start hating again if their love ones are in danger
